Series XXIV. Twenty-First Century Radical Movements

Scope and Content Notes:

This series includes an eclectic mixture of flyers and occasional pamphlets mostly what Oestreicher picked up from events he attended or witnessed in Pittsburgh and Taos, New Mexico. Many of the Pittsburgh materials come from student groups at the University of Pittsburgh, from the Pittsburgh Occupy movement, the Battle of Homestead Foundation (a group of aging New Left labor activists and academics), and demonstrators at the G-20 meetings held in Pittsburgh in 2009.

Taos, New Mexico, where Oestreicher has a summer home, has long had a visible activist community. Since the early 1900s it attracted an artist’s colony as well as other Avant-garde intellectuals like Mable Dodge Luhan and D.H. Lawrence. In the late 1960s a substantial cohort of hippie counterculturalists settled in the Taos area and many stayed after their communes fell apart. In recent years the activist community has also benefited from academic and professional retirees attracted by the area’s culture and surroundings.
