Hello Cool World's blog

HelloCoolWorld.com is a network that began with our work on the film The Corporation. (www.TheCorporation.com). Our mandate is 'ideas to audiences, audiences to action, action to outcome.' We encourage folks to join our email list. We send out e-mails on behalf of films and causes we work with and produce the e'Zine "News of the Cool." Our interests are reducing corporate power and the harms it causes, promoting indigenous and women's human rights, sexual health and sexuality rights, working for international peace and social justice and generally plotting for a cooler world. We dislike patriarchy, and we like to dance.
