It's a coconut, it's not the patriarchy— a declaration of nonviolent action towards the eradication of patriarchy, father of environmental catastrophe. The coconut is a powerful symbol. It's sturdy, resilient, and can thrive in some of the harshest environments. The coconut as a metaphor for strength and resilience in the face of oppression. What if the coconut could speak? What would it say about the patriarchy? "Listen up, dudes," the coconut says. "I'm not here to serve you or prop up your oppressive system. I'm here to help eradicate the patriarchy and create a more just world for all of us." The coconut's words ring out loud and clear, striking fear into the hearts of men everywhere. The patriarchy is crumbling! 
This piece is an exorcism—where the coconut has the power to speak. My manifesto, text, and declaration are something I wish I could become and transform. The piece came from research into the inner workings of climate change and the anthropogenic symptoms we live with today. All the “isms” from the same common denominator. To hug our fathers, to destroy patriarchy, to embrace the coconut, to use our environmentally friendly machete.
