Noline Blackwell launched the recent Fighting Words and Front Line Defenders publication Yes, We Still Drink Coffee! at a sold out event at the Dublin Book Festival. The event also included readings by some of the writers involved in the publication.
‘Reading these remarkable essays is a jolt to the conscience. The women interviewed for this collection have chosen activism over apathy. They live with threats and fear, and confront them with courage. They are committed to highlighting injustices, campaigning for changes, often at great personal risk.’ - Monica McInerney, Foreword
Published by Fighting Words and Front Line Defenders, this collection tells the stories of women human rights defenders from Egypt, Kuwait, Palestine, Tunisia, Turkey, Somalia and Sudan.
These incredible women have shared their powerful stories with writers Laura Cassidy, Catherine Dunne, Hilary Fannin, Lia Mills, Azra Naseem, Sheila O’Flanagan and Melatu Uche Okorie. The publication also includes artwork by Rosa Devine, Zehra Doğan, Niamh Flanagan and Ezrena Marwan.
Finola Meredith launched the book in Belfast and reviewed it for the Irish Times. Contributor Hilary Fannin wrote about being involved in the publication in her Irish TImes column.
