Ashanti Alston at Dublin Anarchist Bookfair

In March 2009 Ashanti Alston, a former member of the Black Panther Party and a Black Liberation Army solider, came to Ireland to speak at the Dublin anarchist bookfair. This is the video of his presentation. In it he talks about his experiences in the Black Panthers and BLA, the lessons he draws from them and what he thinks of revolutionary politics in Ireland. Ashanti talks about his attempt to break BLA comrades out of a New York jail and the influence reading about Irish republicanism had on him in prison as well as how he became an anarchist.
