Like a Mountain has inspired acts of courage and resistance for over 40 years.
Avalanche survivors of Mt. Rainier sang it to keep themselves alive through a freezing night in 1978.
Thirty-thousand women held hands surrounding the Greenham Commons Nuclear Cruise Missile site while singing Like a Mountain. The song sustained that protest for 20 years. (U.K. 1980-2000)
The time has come for us to gather our spirit and sing it again.
An elder and stalwart group of diverse feminists created this in 6 weeks so it could nurture us during times of struggle.
The song is sung by choirs all over the world. Learn the song, sing the song and post video here and we may use it in a future video.
Stay strong, our journey has just begun.
