Nemonte Nenquimo is the first female leader of CONCONAWEP (Waorani Organization of Pastaza Province) and lead plaintiff in the Waorani people’s recent landmark lawsuit protecting half a million acres of their rainforest territory from oil drilling. Facing danger each day she fights for these causes, Nemonte explains,”People who are part of this fight are being threatened by the government. They want to eliminate all of us leaders who appear in public and say that our territory isn’t for sale. As a woman and a mother, I feel strongly that life is more important than money. “ @nemontenenquimo #amazon #ecuador #rainforest #keeptheoilintheground

This is my father (in the dark suit) with his (step)father. My grandfather came from Mexico to California through the Bracero program. He helped my grandmother raise 3 children who were not his own. For years he worked building coke machines. 
My father became a lawyer (criminal defense and labor law). Jerry Brown, the first time he was governor of California, appointed my father to be on the California Agricultural Labor Relations Board. It had recently been set up to help farm workers (mostly Mexican and Filipino) in their struggles for basic labor and human rights. In this capacity my father knew and worked with Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta. One time my parents took me out of school and we drove to Delano for Cesar’s birthday party. #cesarchavez #doloreshuerta #unitedfarmworkers #ufw  #jerrybrown #ronruiz #stefanruiza month agoDownload
Robert Frank. I rarely buy photo books anymore but last week I came across this one in a store that I never go to. The price was nice so I bought it. For sure I have The Americans, The Lines Of My Hand and about 8 other Robert Frank books. He has been a great inspiration to me.
