Women’s movement building and creating community in Haiti

December 14, 2010

One of the stories least reported has been the one about Haitians organizing for themselves. This is one woman’s story of how she, her family and the people in the various communities in which she works came together collectively to care for each other’s needs and how that struggle has become the foundation of a new movement of the poor for change in education and the material lives of women and men – a struggle for dignity.

The People’s Advocate: an interview with Cynthia McKinney after her kidnapping by the Israelis

July 15, 2009

Recently Cynthia McKinney has been traveling to Gaza on human rights missions challenging the illegal Israeli military blockade.

Check out the People’s Advocate in her own words.

July 6, 2009

The world saw Israel’s despicable violence, thanks to al-Jazeera Arabic and Press TV that broadcast in English. I saw those broadcasts live and around the clock, not from the USA but from Lebanon, where my first attempt to get into Gaza had ended because the Israeli military rammed the boat I was on in international waters … It’s a miracle that I’m even here to write about my second encounter with the Israeli military, again a humanitarian mission aborted by the Israeli military.
