Cultures of Resistance

For a few minutes I actually thought that I was going to be able to upload photos. I am so behind on my posts. In the mean time, which will hopefully not be forever, enjoy the following links. I learned about Cultures of Resistance the other day. Their mission statement makes so much sense to me:

Worldwide, people from all walks of life are finding creative ways to oppose war and promote peace, justice, and sustainability. Culture, including film, music and food, is fertile terrain for this struggle. Education that nourishes a critical mind and fortifies the soul is just as essential. CULTURES OF RESISTANCE was established to identify and support international and diverse initiatives that embody these values, and to fortify an international network of activists and agitators, educators and artists, insurgent musicians, guerilla filmmakers, vanguard gardeners and gourmands.

They also have a blog that celebrates "creativity in resistance." The current post links to a Newsweek article about a new comic book series designed to give another perspective to "angry, impressionable young people that fit the “accepted” terrorist profile." Worth checking out.
