Capoeira has introduced me to so many ideas... i had a wonderful session with master weaver Roberto Bottaini, from Pescia, Italy, as we attempted to make caxixis from materials that are indigenous to the specific region of Tuscany where i'm from.
They may not be optimal for the roda, but i learned a lot!

The struggle isn't over

On Tuesday November 24th, WWU cancelled classes because of racist threats made against students of color on social media. Meanwhile, five black lives matters activists were shot and wounded in minneapolis while attending a vigil protesting the Nov. 15 shooting of Jamar Clark, 24, by Minneapolis police officers. It's easy to say: solidarity! from behind a computer - just like it's easy to be an asshole and make threats from behind a computer screen. The real work can only be to redouble our efforts in real life. Look up the Bellingham Racial Justice Coalition. For more trivial things: our practices at WWU have ended for Fall Quarter. We will resume on Monday, January 11th, at 6pm in the Multipurpose room. For training information over break, email us at ficabellingham@gmail.com
