On the heels of the massacre of 7 k’iche and kaqchikel indigenous activists in Totonicapán, Guatemala during peaceful protests on October 4th, Guatemala’s government continues to deny responsibility and fails to reign in transnational mining companies whose illegal land grabs displace communities. These land seizures and mining activities have contributed to high levels of poverty, illness, violence and death, leaving indigenous women to bear the brunt.

HIV+ women in Malawi are being poisoned by the anti-retroviral treatment (ART) provided by the government, which contains Stavudine, a drug that causes painful side effects. Due to deep poverty and inequality, many women are unable to afford alternative ART or land and fertilizer to support good nutrition to make treatment more effective. For four years JASS has supported Malawian women activists in a movement-building process to tackle critical issues affecting women. Considerable mobilization and organizing has culminated into a campaign to ensure women’s access to alternative quality ART with fewer side effects.

“For me, cancer is a rite of passage – from darkness to light, from sorrow to joy, from despair to hope, from confusion to enlightenment.  Above all, from clinging to self-pride to warming up to the love, support, and concern of others. As in all struggles, we are not alone.” – Eve, writer and activist, battling with leukemia The first time I saw Eve a few years ago, my first impression was, ‘Well, she looks like a Roman Catholic nun.’  Can she even break a glass?  Yet, as I would later learn about her life and struggles, beneath that gentle face was a tough persona.
