Northwest Solidarity Conference

B Media was part of the first Northwest Solidarity Conference this weekend. The conference was held at Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, and had over 80 participants from the Northwest and Canada.

Keynote speakers included Carlos Martinez of “Venezuela Speaks,” Jesse Freeston of The Real News Network.

In addition to teach ins on topics from Honduras to Venezuela, concepts covered everything militarization to art and activism.

Most fruitful, however, was the fullday working group discussion on how collaboration between solidarity groups in the Northwest can work.
