May/June 2013

This issue of Briarpatch marks our 40th anniversary of publishing. Former staff members and volunteers reflect on 40 years of scraping by and thriving as a grassroots magazine of radical politics, from a four-page newsletter titled Notes from the Briar Patch in 1973 to a magazine with national reach. Joe Catron reports from the Gaza Strip on fishers and farmers on the front lines of occupation, Aaron Lakoff writes on resistance to repackaged neoliberalism in Quebec’s North, and Leanne Betasamosake makes the case for a diplomacy of love.
