You stand before hundreds,
Yet your words
Stir every single one!
The world waits
For your passion, courage
As there are many
Who want to be free…

Palestine – Activism by Theresa Wolfwood
The message is the right of Palestinians to live a decent life, without charity, but with international support to create a viable Palestinian state; with the dignity of a fair exchange and an opportunity for Palestinians to live productively on their ancestral lands.
Mothers Against Pepper Spray (MAPS) – Activism by Grace E. Reed
MAPS questions/protests the violence of our student youth in Portland (USA) who are getting brutalized by rouge cops that choose to violate. Our activism around this is suggesting the cops who choose to spray/bullet (these innocent protesters) to ask their mothers first.
