Anarchist Librarian; Mumia Update

Irvine -- What's the latest in the Mumia case? And why is this librarian an anarchist?

Today's edition of Subversity, a KUCI public affairs program, features an interview with Chuck Munson, an anarchist librarian from the Washington D.C. area. He's the webmaster for and works on a host of alternative publications, inlcuding Alternative Press Review, Practical Anarchy, and Anarchy magazine.

We also bring you the lastest on the Mumia Abu-Jamal death row appeal, with an interview with Carol Brightman, from Refuse and Resist, Los Angeles. Supporters believe next Friday (August 17) may be his last chance in state court in Philadelphia to stop his execution.

The show airs from 5-6 p.m. west coast time on KUCI, 88.9 fm in Orange County, Calif., and is Web-cast via

Munson was recently in the news after the Cato Institute reported him to the FBI for an e-mail he wrote. Munson says the Cato folks misinterpreted his e-mail. Munson is helping organize upcoming protests against the IMF in Washington, D.C.

Munson is interviewed by activist Stefano Sensi and show host Dan Tsang. Portions of the interview have already appeared in issue 5 (July 20, 2001) of Carta, an Italian left magazine based in Rome ("Washington" (right column) at The issue came out just before the Genoa G-8 protests.
