West Virginia Women (and men) stood in solidarity with our mountains that have been stripped of their trees, plants, and top soil; our streams, springs and wells that have been destroyed; and with our people who are sick and dying as a result of mountaintop removal – by shaving their heads on the steps of the State Capitol today, Monday, May 28, 2012. It was a profoundly powerful and emotional expression of unity and commitment to the environment and the future of this great state.
Art for Change and the El Barrio Arts Cluster are proud to present Soldaderas, a solidarity mural by artist Yasmin Hernandez located at Hope Community’s Modesto “Tin” Flores Garden.

When I went to Dakar, Senegal to participate in the Indymedia Convergence, I got a chance to spend the week with 15 women who traveled from the Niger Delta in Nigeria. They were in Dakar to learn media skills at the IMC-Africa Convergence, and to participate in the World Social Forum to spread awareness about the impact of oil companies on their lives. Here are the powerful, passionate, and inspired voices of Stella Chuky, Windy Grace Mamman, and Emem J Okun.
