Iara Lee and Cultures of Resistance:



Iara Lee states, "The message of Cultures of Resistance is that people throughout the world need to rise up to create positive change. That is something I have always felt. But I never expected to see this spirit being put into action so dramatically as it is now in so many countries in North Africa and the Middle East. Hopefully that spirit of change will continue to inspire people in many more countries to come. Cultures of Resistance is a celebration of people's power and creativity. It promotes the notion that, if we all work together, we can--as Gandhi said--be the change we want to see!"
