Tylor and Jake write: "Social justice movements have always embraced a wide variety of strategies and tactics to move their struggles forward, including direct action. The idea of taking action to immediately stop an opposing action, often using illegal and controversial tactics, has forever been the focus of debate, even amongst it’s participants."
THIS is their primer episode, and then they get to it, with their first guest being Dave Wetton, a remarkable man with an amazing story of activism that dates back to the 1960s. Dave's story is told over two episodes.
DAVE WETTON (part one) - "Dave was born in 1943, and went to his first animal rights demonstrations in 1961. The Hunt Saboteurs Association would be born in 1963, and Dave, at the age of 20, joined shortly after. He would spend decades with the HSA, often in leadership positions, helping it grow into the amazing network of activists that it is today."
DAVE WETTON (part two) - "I remember going back to 1965. There were 3 of us. We went down to Salisbury with the intention of liberating some of the dogs from the chemical warfare establishment."
