    [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="3264"] photo by L.A. Kauffman[/caption] L.A. Kauffman [1], author of the book DIRECT ACTION and the forthcoming HOW TO READ A PROTEST, and a tactical coordinator at Thursday’s women’s mass civil disobedience at the Senate Office Building, takes us inside the largest women’s direct action in history. How did it come about, what happened, and what comes next? Valerie Lapin, director of the film, THE LONG RIDE [2], tells the story of the Immigrant Workers Freedom Ride in 2003 which paved the way for the massive mobilizations of March – May 2006. Novelist and short story writer Yang Huang [3] describes her own journey from Jiangsu, China to Berkeley, her life as a “blue collar writer” and what it feels like to be an immigrant in the U.S. today. Her newest book is MY OLD FAITHFUL, a collection of stories about family life in China.

      [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="448"] courtesy Poetry Foundation[/caption] Chrystos [1] is a Native American of the Menominee nation, born in 1946 and raised in San Francisco. A political activist and speaker as well as an artist and writer, she is self educated. Her tireless momentum is directed at better understanding how issues of colonialism, genocide, class and gender affect the lives of women and Native people. Her books include Fugitive Colors, Not Vanishing, Dream On, Fire Power and In Her I Am. In 1995, Queer in Your Ear (Emily Charles & Mary Salome) interviewed Chrystos about her activism and poetry, and recorded her reading at two venues in San Francisco, Luna Sea and Old Wives’ Tales. The monthly program Queer in Your Ear was cancelled before the program could air. Chrystos’ words continue to inspire us. Women’s Magazine is very happy to bring excerpts from the readings and interview to you for the first time now, decades later. Produced by Mary Salome and Emily Charles.
