Granito de Arena

"Exciting, inspiring. An extraordinary account of ordinary people organizing, protesting, resisting, against enormous odds." -Howard Zinn

Native Oaxaqueño and member of the Frente Indigena de Organizaciones Binacionales (FIOB), Miguel Zafra will discuss history of the uprising in Oaxaca, not just recent events but the years of struggle that have brought the people of Oaxaca to where they are now.
