Veteran activist, lifelong organizer and devoted rabble-rouser, Lisa Fithian, has been part of and helped organize many major movement actions. Lisa Fithian has shut down the CIA. She has disrupted the World Trade Organization and has camped in a ditch with Cindy Sheehan, the Gold Star mom who protested the Iraq War. She has stood her ground in Tahrir Square, occupied Wall Street, marched in the streets of Ferguson, and walked in solidarity with tribal leaders at Standing Rock. And now, Lisa Fithian has taken time out of her incredibly engaged life to write a memoir that is also a guide to direct action and strategic civil disobedience as the most radical and rapid means to social change. Lisa Fithian is an anti-racist organizer who has worked for justice since the 1970s. Using creative, strategic, nonviolent direct action and civil disobedience, she has won many battles and trained tens of thousands of people while participating in a range of movements and mobilizations, including Occupy Wall Street, anti-WTO and corporate globalization protests all over the world, the climate justice movement, and more. Her new book is Shut It Down: Stories From a Fierce Loving Resistance (Chelsea Green Publishing, September 2019).
