MISTAKES WERE MADE
The Long Haul Oral History Project, “MISTAKES WERE MADE”, brings stories about radical events in recent local history to you, told straight from the horse’s mouth- those who were there. The series is meant to keep these stories alive, to honor our local radical histories, and to reflect on and learn from recent history as it relates to current events.
The intention is to stick with historical narratives and first-person accounts, and we are excited about all the possibilities of topics: occupations, squats, movements, and actions, both that were inspiring as well as those that went horribly wrong (also an important part of our history!). This means we need members of the local radical community to come and share their stories. If there’s one thing the Long Haul does well, it’s attracting people who have been around a while. But we’d really like to extend the invitation also to people we might not know who have participated in the wide variety of radical tendencies and activities that make up our rich local radical history.
Please contact us with ideas and proposals for events!

MISTAKES WERE MADE, Long Haul’s Oral History Night series presents our second monthly installment, brought to you as usual on the third Sunday of the month:
Esotericism/ Occultism in the BeastBay circa mid-1980s to mid-1990s
with Lew Finzel and friends.
This time, we’re getting EVEN MORE weird and freaky, while still making some sort of attempt to tie it back to radical politics and current events!
Come see the spectacle (and participate…if you dare).
