Guest Speaker: Eryk Martin holds an M.A. in History from the University of Victoria and is a PhD candidate in the Department of History at Simon Fraser University. His dissertation, ‘Burn it Down! Anarchism, Activism, and the Vancouver Five, 1967-1986,” explores the experiences of five Canadian anarchists known as the Vancouver Five, who came together in the early 1980s to destroy a British Columbia Hydro power station on Vancouver Island, bomb a Toronto factory that was building parts for American Cruise missiles, and assist in the firebombing of pornography stores in Vancouver.
