Who informed our paths, and inspires us to keep on fighting for a better future no matter what. What we are doing now, we are doing because of they’ve practiced what they’ve preached: Paolo Freire, Berta Caseres, Marielle Franko, subcomandanta Ramona and Joe Strammer, Micha the cat and nonna Mimma, Nastya Baburova and Stas Markelov - presente!
