    It's a short animation about Malala Yousafzai who is a Pakistani activist for female education and the youngest-ever Nobel Prize laureate. She is known mainly for human rights advocacy for education and for women in her native Swat Valley in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of northwest Pakistan, where the local Taliban had at times banned girls from attending school. Yousafzai's advocacy has since grown into an international movement.

            Matthew 10:34-42 (Inclusive Bible) “Don’t suppose that I came to bring peace on earth. I came not to bring peace, but a sword. I have come to turn ‘A son against his father, a daughter against her mother, in-law against in-law. One’s enemies will be The members of one’s own household.’ Those who love mother or father, daughter or son more than me are not worthy of me. Those who will not carry with them the instrument of their own death – following in my footsteps – are not worthy of me. You who have found your life will lose it, and you who lose your life for my sake will find it. Those who welcome you also welcome me, and those who welcome me welcome the One who sent me. Those who welcome prophets just because they are prophets will receive the reward reserved for the prophets themselves; those who welcome holy people just because they are holy will receive the reward of the holy ones. The truth is, whoever gives a cup of cold water to one of these lowly ones just for being a disciple will not lack a reward.”

              A joining of generations happened at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute on March 26, 2015. The young generation, from UNCA, and the older generation, a group of activists in the Asheville area, came together to discuss the important topic of climate change. This is part one in a series of discussions, hosted by Elders Fierce for Justice, to ask important questions and find out how these two different age groups might see the world as it approaches this crucial time where action must be taken. Some of the questions posed to the group include: What is at stake in climate change? What is the responsibility for each group (young and old) for mitigating the effects of climate change? What strategies does each generation deam effective? Where should be put our energies, politics/policy, local initiative, direct action, movement building, etc. Be a part of this discussion and tell us your viewpoint. How does that fit in with your generation? And how can YOU start a discussion that might motivate people in your community. Email eldersffj@gmail.com or Info@olliasheville.com for more information about future discussions in this series, as well as how you can get involved.

                  Our planet is at a critical point in time. We understand more than we ever have about how it works yet the battle to stop the causes we know destroy it have become even more dangerous. In a report by Global Witness titled ‘Deadly Environment’, published in 2014, between 2002 and 2013 there have been 908 verifiable cases of environmental activists or citizens killed globally. In Thailand the knowledge and networks of environmental defenders has become increasingly more sophisticated and organised. This has led to the opportunities of capitalist investors being sharply decreased, which in turn may have led to an increase in violence against those who oppose them. In the last 20 years over 20 environmental activists have been murdered throughout the country. Many perpetrators go unpunished as the influence of the rich and powerful can easily override justice. From roadside cafes, lonely forests to traffic junctions; Murder scenes it seems have little in common except to be convenient places to remove an obstacle. But the places mean little, the victims themselves are what mattered. Yet to them their causes meant the most - causes for which they all paid the ultimate price. This project follows the roads that lead to the assassinations by documenting two activists who survived such attacks and by visiting the families of those who weren’t so lucky. For over 20 cases I was able to locate the families and the exact location of the crime committed and with their blessing place a portrait of the victim where the body was found. These people, who fought for their community, did so for completely unselfish reasons, yet they paid with their life. Some fights were won, some were lost, but all involved someone dying for the cause. Most of the cases were random incidents and whilst reported briefly in local media they were soon forgotten. This project aims to collectively remember the people who lost their lives, exactly where they lost their lives, exposing the severity of the issue in Thailand.

                    Matthew 12:38-42 (Inclusive Bible) Then some of the religious scholars and Pharisees spoke up: “Teacher, we want to see a miraculous sign from you.” Jesus answered, “It is an evil and unfaithful generation that asks for a sign! The only sign to be given is the sign of Jonah the prophet. For as Jonah was in the whale’s belly for three days and three nights, so will the Chosen One be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. “On Judgement Day the citizens of Nineveh will stand up against this generation and condemn it, because they repented when Jonah preached – but now one greater than Jonah is here. On Judgement Day the Queen of Sheba will rise up against this generation and condemn it, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear Solomon – but now one greater than Solomon is here.”
