How to Be a Real Activist: an Interview with Edwin Lindo

edwin-lindo

Edwin Lindo is the real deal. He’s not just passively sharing articles on Facebook and calling it activism, he’s actually putting his body on the line and fighting for the change he wants to see in San Francisco, the United States, and the world.

In this episode of the Weird & Wonderful podcast, we talk about Edwin’s time at Standing Rock, the 18 day hunger strike he took part in with the rest of the Frisco 5, his work as a law professor at the University of Washington, and what it was like growing up in San Francisco.

We also discuss his views on the Police State in the US,  gentrification, what it means to be an activist, and the best ways for white people to be involved.

This is a fantastic episode and I really think you should listen to. Please make sure to subscribe. Links are below:

I've been called "an Underground legend": SF Chronicle , "an SF cult hero": SF Bay Guardian, and "the chief of cheap": Time Out New York, but to those familiar with my work, I'm just "that douchebag who writes books about cheap stuff and drinks a lot".
