DIY (do-it-yourself) Festival 2004

Who we are:  College students and community members whose aim is to combat oppression and fight for human rights.  Different people have chosen to work on different issues including fighting capitalism, patriarchy, authority, hierarchy, imperialism, heterosexism, homophobia, sexual assault, environmental destruction, corporate media, International Monetary Fund, World Bank, World Trade Organization, Zionism, classism, and sexism, while working for respect, dignity, equality and freedom for all people.
