75 km yezterday, 16 this morning brought us to the humber and what was one of the biggest fishing ports in europe.
Was very excited to be arriving on Lil Biloccas and the headscarf revolutionaries home turf. Big Lil and the women are totally inspirational, and demonstrate so much of the power of womxn/fishworkers. (More info:
Can't really express anything without sounding idiotic, but just to say very honoured to speak to so many seafaring folks from a much ignored community that has seen 6000 Fishermen lost to the sea in 130 years.
At some point our luck may run out and folks might not want to talk about fish work, time and value and what it means today. But right now super grateful that people are really up for sharing their experience with us, and back what our aims.
Feel pretty overwhelmed of recieving this Hessle road fisherman mural t shirt from Jerry and Ray at the Hull Fishing Heritage Museum. Hope that we can develop a project that is deserving of such an important gift. Hull we will be back.
