On December 1, 1955 in Montogmery.Alabama, Parks when se was 42, refused to obey bus driver James Blake's order because she didn´t want to leave her sit for a white passenger. Her action was not the first of this type: Irene Morgan, in 1946, and Sarah Louise Keys, in 1955, had won rulings before the U.S. Supreme Court and the Interstate Commerce Commission respectively in the area of interstate bus travel.
Because of that Parks becam an important symbol of the modern Civil Rights Movement and Parks beame an internation resisten of racial segration.When this occurs Parks works for ‘rights and racial equality’,but she lost her job so she went to work to Detroit.Michigan and get a job similar to that.
In my opinion Parks is an important campaigner because she want the same rigths and racial equality, and I thin all we are the same and we don´t have to discriminate someone beecaus of his/her coloir or because she is English or Spanish.But I don´t understand very well that if she work por the equal rights and the racial equality we she didn´t want to give up her sit for the white passenger to sit on.
I agree with her because she is fighting against a very important factor in the actual society. Pollution has reached a very high level and we all have to contribute to reduce pollution.
Julia Butterfly Hill is an environment activist. He goes up a California Redwood for 738 days to prevente this tree is not going to cutting it down. He lived in a 32-food camper with his father, mother and two younger brothers. She write a book called The Legacy Of Luna. His nickname is Butterfly because when she is six years old a butterfly landed in his hand and stay there entire time. His father travell a lot because the job and go town to town, bringing his family with he. When Julia was in the middle school his family and she settle Jonesboro Arkansas. When Hill was 22, she worked at driver for a friend and suffered a car crash.
After recuperating from his accident, she goes to California with a road trip to try to save the forest from the people to want to cut some trees. One organizes that want to cut the trees are the Pacific Lumber Co. who were clear-cutting. Hill not contributed to any enviromental organization, she deceded to act by his self undertake the act of the civil disobedience, but some she was supported by another organizations and volunteers, called Earth First.
I agree with him because his theory is good for the people to know about poverty and famines.

In 1931 she came to Madrid to work in the Mundo Obrero newspaper. In 1933 she became president of the Anti fascist Women Union.
La Pasionaria was in prison lots of times, because of her speeches and her participation on lots of comunist protests. She died in Madrid in 1989.
Some of her famous quotes form part of an imaginary set of human ideas of freedom and hope. She has been the inspiration for lots of poets and singers like Pablo Neruda, Rafael Alberti or Ana Belén.
I agree with her because she was one of the first women who entered in politics during the Spanish Republic and then during the Spanish Civil War she participated in the Republic party. She also fought for her ideas going to hunger strikes, talking on the radio giving her opinion, participating on lots of protests etc. All that shows that she was a very brave woman because she wasn’t scare about what can happen to her by doing all that things, and she never resigned to her dreams and ideas.
