A quest to turn the tide after decades of storms.

Our recent storms didn’t start in 2020 or 2016. They started decades ago in the 1960s – a whirlwind of threatened nuclear catastrophe, then police dogs and rednecks terrorizing civil rights marchers down south, then Vietnamese children fleeing from napalm flames. Then draft notices to go to Vietnam to “fight commies.” A small town boy started by supporting rightist Goldwater against the “peace candidate” Johnson, but rapidly changed in the face of the civil rights and anti-war movements, and started a quest that hasn’t ended yet.

An editor of Amex-Canada (The American Exile/Expatriate in Canada) from 1969 to 1974, Dee Knight helped organize the National Council for Universal Unconditional Amnesty (NCUUA) from 1973 to ’77. Following decades of anti-imperialist activism, he is now a member of Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), and serves on the DSA International Committee’s Anti-War subcommittee.
