A group of high school students that worry about their future due to climate change, approached our foundation for help. This summer, under the leadership of student Tom Daman, they started the Time is Now Movement. This protest movement demands more education about sustainability, innovation and global warming. The movement has seen a swift growth so politicians better watch out! These smart cookies know what they want!

This poster from the Chicago Women's Liberation Union shows some of the protest activities that the group engaged in during the late 1960s and into the 1970s. CWLU was a pivotal arm of the second wave feminist movement, and importantly advocated for "gay and lesbian liberation" as part of their founding political principles for women's liberation. We have a number of CWLU photos and archival documents in our collection; see the link in our bio for more. #nothiddenlabor#protest#feminism#protesthistory#laborhistory#feministhistory#arthistory#protestart#protestmovement

Happy Birthday to singer Melissa Manchester! 2012 PODCAST INTERVIEW by Bob Andelman
MELISSA MANCHESTER podcast excerpt: “Women’s rights are always politicized. On certain levels they’re just hot button issues to galvanize an audience really quickly because candidates don’t want to talk about deeper issues. I think it’s important for women to keep an eye on the ball to empower themselves to help their families. Healthy women, healthy families is good for our families and that’s all I’m interested in.” https://mrmedia.com/2012/09/melissa-manchester-interview/

His world turned upside down three days after he set foot in UP Diliman. Renato ‘Nato’ Reyes Jr. witnessed a lightning rally in protest of tuition fee increase at the state university during a freshman orientation. He immediately joined League of Filipino Students (LFS). That’s where he met people from different poor sectors, the oppressed. Since then, he understood the need for collective action. “I understood their motivation for protesting. There was always a compelling reason for protests, hunger strikes, barricades, and other forms of collective action. Usually, the existing government mechanism is insufficient, especially that the justice system doesn’t favor the poor.” Nato wrote in his blog.
For the past few months, Nato has been the target of an army of trolls. ‘A millionaire for joining rallies’ and ‘hospitalized after being bottle-smashed while protesting’ are just some of the fake news spread by trolls on social media to discredit him.
According to Nato, he attempts to explain the issues hurled against him especially to those who are willing to listen. "If I am able to convince 2-3 people, that is more powerful than the noisy ones who only make noises," said Nato.
He added, the best way to counter lies is to assert the truth. “We can't do it alone. For every person we convince, we were able to add more people who can help explain. It is our job to explain. That is our task.
25 years after witnessing the lightning rally at a freshman orientation Nato’s world is still upside down. Only now, it is littered with trolls- a challenge he gladly accepted if it is what it takes in order for the world he longs, to be right upside.

The events that took place on February 26th, 2012 sent the American people into an uproar. Chaos and hysteria initially ensued when the news had reported the murder of a young African American boy. The false representation of a phone call between the shooter and police caused the general public to believe a hate crime had occurred. With the flames of hatred stoked by news channels such as NBC, the already noticeable divisions of the American people grew wider, along with each segment of it growing stronger within itself. Though the protest depicted in this photo have done good in attempts to break down the walls that divide us, The motivation which started this movement was only trying to make them higher. #blacklivesmatter#trayvonmartin#protestmovement ~~ J.F
