About

I am a 20 something leftist political activist with a wide range of issues, causes, and awareness. Please leave your news,views, links and comments! This blog has 2 primary functions: education and solidarity.

Follow me on Twitter here.

My vision is that this will be a place to provide links to first person, on the street reporting via photos, video, web design, written testimony and other creative methods. I want to provide a unique source of info on political movements around the United States and the world.

Any help in accomplishing that goal is greatly appreciated! I am only the blog’s hostess – if you’ve got a message the world should hear, this is your place to post it!

Much love,

Keia

  1. Keia, Great site you have here. Totally stoked by it. I am the Maverick Media producer and host. Sending you this link to an interview with Helen Benedict. Helen’s work helped to spark a class action lawsuit against the Pentagon, Robert Gates, and Donald Rumsfeld.

    Girls and women who are considering joining the military need to understand what it may end up costing them, above and beyond the obvious. thanks, cindy

      Hello Cindy,

      Thanks very much for visiting! I’m really glad you like the blog. Female military participation is a topic with which I am not that familiar, so I will definitely check out that link. Thanks for sharing!

      Take care,
      Keia Jin

  2. Hi Keiajin,

    Here are some further links on the problems of sexual assault in the military. Sorry I didn’t get back to you earlier.

    Part II- http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=22495

    VA on PTSD (As I understand it, military sexual trauma ([MST] is leading cause of PTSD among female veterans) – http://www.ptsd.va.gov/professional/newsletters/research-quarterly/v20n2.pdf

    Keiajin, the Service Women’s Action Network (SWAN) is focusing on this issue: http://servicewomen.org/

    The net is loaded with information on this hidden problem, just google “military sexual trauma.”

    With appreciation, cindy
