Big Questions with Simona Sharoni

By John Collins

Weave News videographers Julianne DeGuardi and Erica Sawyer recently had the pleasure of sitting down with scholar and activist Dr. Simona Sharoni (Professor of Gender and Women's Studies at the State University of New York in Plattsburgh) during her visit to St. Lawrence University, where she presented a workshop on student and faculty activism. In this interview, part of our ongoing Big Questions project, Sharoni speaks about a range of contemporary issues ranging from the importance of independent media to struggles for social justice in Palestine, on US college campuses, and elsewhere.

Big Questions with Bay Area activists at the Media Freedom Summit

By John Collins

On October 21-22 I had the pleasure of attending the Media Freedom Summit held at Sonoma State University in celebration of the 40th anniversary of Project Censored. In addition to co-leading a workshop on "People's Videography and Citizen Journalism," at which I spoke on behalf of Weave News about our Big Questions and Holot: Crossroads of Global Violence projects, I was fortunate to be able to conduct Big Questions interviews with three inspiring activists: Deseriee McSwain, Ana Rivera, and Nadya Tannous.
