Pure, Natural Coca Leaf – A Healing Gift Of The Divine Plant

Brilliant Political Activism – Femen

1 Comment

While this post isn’t precisely about Coca Leaf or natural medicines it is about the strategy of a new Ukrainian feminist group that is terribly relevant to anyone who is seeking an effective way to oppose repression, injustice and exploitation on the part of governments, institutions, and mass ignorance.

The following two videos focus on the Ukrainian protest group Femen and the young woman who came up with one of the most effective ways to bring attention to the cause of the oppression and exploitation of women that I have ever seen. As you will see, Femen has come up with a way to ensure that their voices can’t be ignored.

Inna Shevshenko’s approach reminds me of an old joke in which two Englishmen who are animal rights activists are walking down a country road when they come across a weathered old farmer savagely beating a mule with a big stick. One says to the farmer “I say old chap, can’t you simply explain to the creature what you want? Do you have to beat him so terribly?”

The farmer looks up at the two and grunts “Well, you may be right about reasoning with the beast, but first I have to get his attention.”

InaShevshenkoCheck out how this brave young Ukrainian woman manages to get the attention of the stubborn beasts who dominate her society.

Please view the two videos in order. In the first video Inna explains how she came to create Femen, and in the second video you’ll see Femen in action. Simply Brilliant!

Video #1 – Inna explains how Femen came to be and the atrocious treatment that she received from Ukrainian authorities.

Video #2 – Inna and friends in action – the expressions on the faces in the crowds are PRICELESS!

I love creating, testing, and launching new ideas that work and that make a positive contribution to other peoples' lives. I love breaking trails and discovering hidden or new pathways, new ways of looking at special parts of the world, and most of all I love sharing what I find with others. I wrote the first Cannabis grow book “The Cultivators Handbook of Marijuana” in 1969. Cultivators has sold over 6 million copies worldwide & is still in print in 2016. I'm very happy to have been a part of the beginning of what is now a true revolution. I created The Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Company in the early 1980's and invented the American Spirit™ brand. My hope is that many people who chose the organic tobacco alternative have enjoyed smoking a more natural product and been healthier because of it. I wrote the first Cannabis extraction/medical edibles book “Marijuana Foods” in the early 1980's. While Cannabis extracts for medicinal use go back thousands of years, many people in my generation had not even heard of Cannabis butter. I was happy to share what I discovered through research and experimentation. I wrote the first organic Tobacco grow book “The Cultivators Handbook of Natural Tobacco”. I know that in some parts of the country, growers are selling organic tobacco at farmers markets, and I still have hope that a networked collaborative industry can be organized as an alternative to the so-called "Tobacco Industry". I helped thousands of people to be better cross-cultural business communicators with the “International Straight Talk” video/CBT series in the 1990's. If you have the patience for some very old-style talking heads videos they are all digitized and online. A lot of culturally-astute people appear in these videos sharing valuable information. I re-introduced Coca Leaf to the natural medicines dialogue with “Panacea Chronicles” and “The Coca Leaf Papers” in 2010 – 2012. This is a digitized collection of core books on Coca from the 18th and 19th centuries, with a hyperlinked bibliography. I created this resource so that people could connect with Coca's relevance to core health issues in today's world through understanding its historical context. I just finished (2016) developing a market-disrupting line of Cannabis products for “Landrace Brands™”. I figured there was no reason a company run by people I care about to be just another me-too Cannabis industry startup, so we came up with a few surprises. I enjoyed this process and would like to do the same for other Cannabis market companies run by good people. I am currently researching and writing "Cannabis For Seniors: A Caregivers Handbook" to be published in 2017. I welcome your ideas for topics, and stories about how Cannabis has made a difference in your own life or in the life of someone you love. I am always looking for interesting new challenges. Is there anything that we should be discussing?
