“Punk and Politics Picnic” 

The alternative community was a magnet for radical beliefs, on all sides of the political spectrum. This seminar will look at issues such as the Cold War, Environmentalism, Women’s Rights, and the power of the state.

This week we’ll be having class outside. A punk rock picnic!

Vegetarianism has become a tenet of many punk rock participants, so try and bring something to share that fits that theme of not being meat.
