ARM THE SPIRIT Book Launches with DIANA BLOCK
FREE

In June 1985, Diana Block, her two-week-old son, 
and five companions fled Los Angeles after 
finding a surveillance device in their car. 
Facing the possibility of arrest because of her 
militant activities in the struggle for Puerto 
Rican independence, Diana spent the next decade 
living underground: on the run from the FBI, 
raising two children, and juggling security, solidarity, and motherhood.
Her new memoir offers insights into efforts to 
build homegrown clandestine resistance to US 
imperialism, and traces her political development 
on either side of her period underground. ARM THE 
SPIRIT offers a history of the culture and 
politics of the 1960s and 1970s and an analysis 
of the political terrain of the 1990s, when Diana 
resurfaced and tried to reintegrate into a very 
different world. Join us, either at the AK 
warehouse or at Modern Times (or both!), for a reading and Q&A with the author.
