Pussy Hat Project …. ‘Mine finally arrived …. the summer version …. “!!

THE SUMMER VERSION

I followed the Women’s March on Washington, the day after the inauguration.

Who could miss that ‘sea of pink’?

I wanted to get one of those ‘pussy ears’ hats for a long time.

I finally got one.

It came in the mail yesterday.

I now have my very own version.

Perfect for Florida weather!

What is Pussyhat Project?

The Pussyhat Project launched November 23, 2016 in anticipation and commemoration of the Women’s March on Washington.

Pussyhat Project formed with two aims:

Provide the people of the Women’s March on Washington a means to make a unique collective visual statement (a sea of pink hats) which will help activists be better heard and
Provide people who cannot physically march on the National Mall a way to represent themselves and support women’s rights by creating and gifting pussyhats.

Underlying this project is the idea that in the process of making pussyhats, participants would be connecting with each other and laying the groundwork for future political activism. Pussyhat Project is about creating a platform for people to support women’s rights and each other.

Why is “pussy” in the name Pussyhat?

We love the clever wordplay of “pussyhat” and “pussycat,” buy yes, “pussy” is also a derogatory term for female genitalia. We chose this loaded word for our project because we want to reclaim the term as a means of empowerment.

In this day and age, if we have pussies we are assigned the gender of “woman.”

Women, whether transgender or cisgender, are mistreated in this society. In order to get fair treatment, the answer is not to deny our femaleness and femininity, the answer is to demand fair treatment. A woman’s body is her own. We are honoring this truth and standing up for our rights.

The Empire’s Buffoon: Luís Muñoz Marín


How did it begin? … ‘the island was cooked and served like a Thanksgiving turkey.

The principal buffoon of this farce was Luís Muñoz Marín, the “so-called governor” of Puerto Rico.’

WAR AGAINST ALL PUERTO RICANS

 War Against All Puerto Ricans: Revolution and Terror in America’s Colony

.

As “public-private partnerships” and U.S. vulture funds prepare to devour Puerto Rico, it is useful to examine how the island was cooked and served like a Thanksgiving turkey. It started in 1898 and accelerated in 1952, with the “Estado Libre Asociado” farce.

The principal buffoon of this farce was Luís Muñoz Marín, the so-called “governor” of Puerto Rico. Please view this video and decide for yourself…

A report by Teresa Parker Farris for the Tulane University News

Coinciding with the 100th anniversary of the granting of U.S. citizenship to Puerto Ricans and and the impending referendum on the territory’s political status, Tulane’s Newcomb Art Museum presents “Beyond the Canvas: Contemporary Art From Puerto Rico.”

The exhibition presents the work of five artists whose works allude to this critical moment in Puerto Rican history: Zilia Sánchez, Julio Suárez, Arnaldo Roche Rabell, Pedro Vélez and Elsa María Meléndez. Each of the artists challenges the notion of the canvas as a flat surface for painted images by pulling, rubbing, folding, slashing, ripping, sewing and warping the fabric.

“Beyond the Canvas” is accompanied by a student-curated show, “Culture, Community, and Civic Imagination in Greater San Juan.”

The smaller exhibition was envisioned, curated and designed by Tulane students enrolled in Women, Community and Art in Latin America: Puerto Rico. The…

teleSUR spoke with Vieques resident and activist Ismael Guadalupe about Puerto Rico’s current and historic battle against U.S. imperialism.
Ismael Guadalupe was a leader in the struggle to get the U.S. Navy out of Vieques, Puerto Rico. The tactics used by the movement led to a historic victory in 2003, when the U.S. Navy was forced to close its military base on the small island and end all exercises and training, including the testing of bombs.
The fight against the U.S. Navy in Vieques is a good example of Puerto Rico’s status as a colony. Could you tell us how Vieques triumphed against colonialism?

Ismael Guadalupe: Years after the U.S. Navy expropriated the best lands in the country, the most important nationalist leader in Puerto Rico, Dr. Pedro Albizu Campos slammed the increased destruction of the island of Vieques. He described it as the dismemberment of our nation. Nationalism was experiencing its…
