Billy Nessen is a long-time activist, most recently working with UC Berkeley students (Fossil Free Cal) to demand the Regents divest from big oil, coal and natural gas.

Nessen, a leader of the student anti-apartheid divestment movement at Berkeley in the ‘80s, will give us a history of the movements he’s been involved in, from the protests at the Concord Naval Weapons Station against shipping weapons to El Salvador to his role as a journalist who was captured and imprisoned while traveling with the Aceh guerilla movement in Indonesia during their fight for Independence.

Steve Jacobson of Earth First! and Occupy will interview Billy Nessen to help bring his work to light. We may also be seeing excerpts from Nessen’s film, The Black Road.

Occupy is being asked to join in a Nighttime March at Berkeley to end investment in fossil fuel on Wednesday, Novemeber 12th at 9 pm at Telegraph and Bancroft (Facebook: Fossil Free Cal).
