My proudest moment as an activist was at the People's Climate March. My son, who was 7 at the time stood up with a chant sheet and got the ENTIRE crowd to follow his lead in the chants. I have never been more inspired as a parent as I was to hear my baby yelling. BOMB TRAINS?!?! and a hundred people responding to him. INSANE!!!!
Why Do I Do What I Do?
As an activist, i get that question... A LOT! Over time my answer has gotten shorter and simpler... but no less true. I fight for my planet at the risk of my life and freedom because someone has to. Nothing changes if no one stands up for Mother Earth. We may be different colors, we may have different spiritual paths and lifestyles... but one thing we ALL need to remember is that we are ALL HUMAN BEINGS and without Mother Earth... we do not exist.
A Profound Week Of Revelations And Revolution
Thursday. 5.19.16 9:42 am
mood: strange.... i feel... strange
This last week has been truly amazing for its overwhelmingness.. Last Thursday... I found out that I am indeed pregnant. I find out my due date this afternoon... It's quite a surprise to be having a baby at 41 but it's not unwelcome at all. My son is rather excited about being a big brother. He really wants this to be a boy... but he said he would be happy with a little sister to protect too...
Then... last weekend was #breakfree. We pretty much took over Anacortes and it was GREAT!! Environmental activism at its finest!! It was awesome because not only did we make our statement to the world.... but I got to see people I hadn't seen since sHell No in Seattle last year. The highlights of my weekend were offfering support to the blockaders on the tracks on the first day and facing down the SWAT goon squads on the third. (SWAT cops are apparently scared of pregnant women with cameras...lol.... who knew!?!) I have pictures up in my gallery in the #BreakFreePNW album.
All told.. there were 52 arrests at the track blockade on Sunday morning and as of Sunday night... all were out of jail!! I consider this a victory for Planet Earth!
