Clandestine Occupations 

By Diana Block.

Diana Block is a founding member of San Francisco Women Against Rape, the Prairie Fire Organizing Committee, and California Coalition for Women Prisoners. She also spent thirteen years living underground with a political collective in support of the Puerto Rican Independence and Black liberation movements. Since returning, she has committed herself to anti-prison work, and is now releasing her first novel, Clandestine Occupations. The book, which is being published by PM Press, tells the story of a fictional San Francisco activist named Luba Gold who goes underground in 1984 to support the Puerto Rican Independence movement. As the story progresses, it probes into relationships of solidarity across generations of female activists, while exploring such relatable emotions as love and betrayal. Block will be at E. M. Wolfman General Interest Small Bookstore (410 13th St., Oakland) on January 14 at 7 p.m. for an official book launch party, reading, and discussion.
