“One Billing Rising Resistance” was an international joint action initiated to end violence against women.

Through dancing, we expressed aspects of life and solidarity that do not succumb to violence.
We made a poster and t-shirts and sold them to donate funds in solidarity with the Hong Kong struggle (2019).
We’re a self-organized small group focused on ecological issues. We do actions in solidarity with struggles against destructive development projects and environmental destruction. We ride bicycles, set up solidarity camps, hold workshops, and join pickets or rallies.
