Squamish Five

Where I was in Squamish, BC yesterday, I was trying to remember any details about the Squamish Five. CBC has a good summary here

When they met at the beginning of the ’80s, the five – who would become the Squamish Five – discovered they saw the world the same way. They believed that street protests were achieving nothing and that mainstream activism was spent as a force for radical change.. They would soon conclude that nothing short of “direct action”: would stir a response from governments and corporations.
