Movie of the Week: The Diggers of San Francisco

The Diggers movement began in San Francisco in the mid 60's. Post-beat, running parallel to the hippies but not really of them, leaderless & anarchic, somewhat formless & unorganized, its perhaps because of this they've never really gotten the attention they deserve. 

For more on the Diggers, check out The Digger Archives, and read Emmett Grogan's amazing memoir, Ringolevio: A Life Played for Keeps (I've read it twice).

Hat tip to the mighty Joe Nolan.
