Fashioning Resistance to

Militarism

May 13, 2010
Agate Hall, Doors at 6:30pm


The Gap has a new clothing line with “military styling.” Baby clothes, backpacks, lingerie, and draperies all come in camo. What does this say about a nation at war?

This unique fashion show by UO students, staff, and faculty in collaboration with Eugene community members, will feature original designs that challenge some pervasive assumptions about militarism. The show will uncover the high costs of militarism in terms of people’s lives, emotional well-being, environmental contamination, carbon footprint, war profiteering, and all the ways war is made to see normal also “protest wear” and joyous “peace wear.” Each design will be paired with an informative script. Together the outfits will tell a wider story about militarism and peace.

Take Back the Night: April 29, 2010

The Take Back the Night March began in 1976 when over 2000 women from 40 nations marched together to protest the ways in which violence impacts the lives of women worldwide. Every year since that first gathering, women around the world have been marching  through the streets of their communities to demand an end to the violence and to celebrate those who have survived.

The rally, march and speak-out happens every year on the last Thursday of April. The event begins in the EMU Amphitheatre on April 29th at 6:30pm and ends after 9pm in downtown Eugene (8th/Oak). There will be transportation back to campus after the Speakout.  We are hoping that folks will come out and support this event in solidarity and to raise awareness in all our communities  around the issue of sexual assault.  Please consider attending the rally, march and speakout and let your voices be heard !

Speakers/Performers at the Rally:

Sexual Wellness Advocacy Team

The Sexual Wellness Advocacy Team  (SWAT) is a group of students committed to ending sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking at the University of Oregon. SWAT creates and facilitates workshops on consent, relationships, dating violence and intervening with friends. We use interactive facilitation styles including theater to create change at the UO. SWAT is a sex-positive program meaning we do not advocate for one type of commitment or sexual behavior over another. We also recognize that some students may choose abstinence. We  advocate for mutual, informed, clear consent in all sexual relationships.

Radical Cheerleaders
http://radcheers.tripod.com/ < http://radcheers.tripod.com/ > )

Radical Cheerleading is Protest+Performance. It’s activism with pom poms and middle fingers extended. It’s screaming FUCK CAPITALISM while doing a split. The Radical Cheerleaders started when  once upon a time, two magical sisters from the land of Florida named Cara and Aimee decided that regular old protests on street corners holding signs and waving at oncoming traffic was just not RADICAL enough. They made pom-poms out of plastic bags and passed their cheers out in zine form. Soon enough, Radical Cheerleading spread like blue bonnet margarine on vegan biscuits. The UO squad has been a staple to the activist communities for many years past, and many to come. They always make TBTN a priority  cause, and for this we welcome their righteous presence again this year.    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKGYlB7IBSY&feature=youtube_gdatahttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKGYlB7IBSY&feature=youtube_gdata >
