The School of the Americas Protest in Fort Benning, GA marked the end of Fall Tour for the Beehive Coal Campaign in the Southeast. With huge banners of the Plan Colombia, FTAA and True Cost of Coal Graphics centered in the street, Bees told stories of militarization and solidarity economics to more than 20,000 people over the weekend. Though this event is enormous and inspiring, the work does not stop here. We all have a lot of work to do (and new political celebrities to pressure).
After all the pollen we've collected and shared throughout the Fall season, it is now time to return to our Hives for a short time this winter and finish up some over-due collaborations. Illustrator ants will be busy with their pencils and ink pens in both Maine and Florida, and we are eager to share the honey this Spring as we plan to swarm the country, AGAIN!
