By 11am the rain had passed, the sun was out, and students were again filling the courtyard, organizers from 18 groups were passing out leaflets, and students were signing up for more information
The first "Festival of Resistance" at UH-Manoa was organized by Refuse & Resist! It has since been organized by Not In Our Name-Hawai`i, and then by World Can't Wait-Hawai`i. Its purpose is to bring an atmosphere of resistance to the UH-Manoa Campus and introduce students to community and campus organizations struggling to create a better world. Throughout the day students and faculty stopped to thank us and as we were breaking down after 2pm a worker from one of the food-carts shouted: "You guys are awesome! Why don't you do this more often?" We wish we could and thank EVERYONE who made this year's Festival possible!
