Yesterday I watched the Independent Lens Documentary Deaf Jam by Judy Lieff and was left in tears. It was an incredibly empowering and beautiful film merging the art/poetry world with the ASL world as well as touching on issues of feminism and world peace (specifically the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict). I really encourage you all to watch the film and to listen/read to the incredible poem that is performed by Aneta Brodski and Tahani Salah towards the end of the film (here’s a clip of them working together).

OCCUPY THE PLANET!!!

My brothers and sisters!  If there is any part of you that feels corruption and suffering is what runs the world then please watch this video and reblog!  Then unite with us who seek freedom!  Even if you can’t participate in the fight yet, at least let the people know what’s going on since the mainstream media and associated press will not.  Look at the links below and join your city’s occupation movement and take back your freedom!  And remember to keep it peaceful.  Viva la rEVOLution!
