The Resistance Will Not Be Stopped!
The stories of resistance is a living library, which offers an opportunity to highlight and deepen our understanding of the various ways in which our ancestors resisted throughout hundreds of years of human history and how we continue to resist. The stories span from the 1500s all the way to the present day! These are stories about decolonizing education, healing and healthcare, sustainable energy, natural resources, land ownership, food and nutrition, family and social relationships, identity and belonging, safety & security, and economics & government.
