From Rebellion To Extinction with Jeff Laster

The radical WEATHERMAN group (a.k.a. WEATHER UNDERGROUND) was created 50 years ago this year and for the next several years played a leading role in the radical left in the U.S. Their founding document called for a "white fighting force" to be allied with the "Black Liberation Movement" and other radical movements to achieve "the destruction of U.S. imperialism and form a classless communist world". With the help of the Housman's audience, Ex-Weatherman Jeff Laster will look at the lessons we can learn from both the Rise and the Fall of this legendary group. He will look at the reasons for its relevancy in 1969 and the reasons for its complete irrelevancy (extinction!) in 2019.
