First day of installing at Hå prestegard

I arrived at Hå prestegard early in the morning yesterday. When I came to the museum they had built the platform the labels will be installed at. The carpenters had done such good work! I used the day to sort the labels while others painted the platform pink - the color they use in Juarez to protest the murders.

Local people in from Hå, Stavanger, Voss have been embroidering at their homes, sending labels back to Hå. A group of Falun Gong practitioner in Stavanger asked me if they also could embroider the names of female Chinese Falun Gong practitioner, tortured and killed for practicing their belief( for more information see http://www.clearharmony.net/). They sent me back some of the names of these women in addition to labels embroidered with the names of the women of Juarez. Although the starting point for this project is the women of Juarez, abuse of women is happening in every country. The labels embroidered with unknown symbolize this, but to have some actual names from another part of the world is also important.

Thank you all for your contribution. And now I have to go back to work - installing.

Best Lise
