Artist Maryjean Viano Crowe and poet, Elizabeth W. Garber, collaborated for the 2012 Belfast, Maine Poetry Festival. Three stories are recounted here: Elizabeth's indelible experience talking with Mothers of the Disappeared in Argentina; Maryjean's intense following of the events of the Arab Spring uprising in Egypt; and their combined involvement locally working against the proposed 23 million gallon, 14 story tall LPG "megatank" that was proposed for the coastal village of Searsport, Maine. Viano Crowe and Garber focused on women's leadership in fighting against oppression, with words, action, and bearing witness. This work is divided into three sections: Argentina, Egypt, and Searsport to honor them. (Update 2014: The megatank was not built, though the issue is still a contentious one between proponents and opponents).
