Simon Sedillo: Media Educator/ Activist, "El Enemigo Comun"...
This Bilingual multi-media workshop / presentation will include scene
selections from three films: "El Enemigo Común" (2005), "El Machete"
(2007) and "Paz Sin Justicia" (2008) in order to illustrate neoliberal
atrocities and community based resistance to them in Oaxaca, Mexico.

"El Enemigo Común" documents paramilitary activity in Oaxaca from
2000-2005, leading up to the arrival of Ulises Ruiz Ortiz, Oaxaca's
current governor.

"El Machete" was filmed and edited by indigenous women and youth from
communities in Oaxaca, during the winter of 2007, and documents a more
profound look at the day to day struggles for land, water, transportation,
culture, dignity, justice, liberty, and peace.

"Paz Sin Justicia," a 41 minute film by the Committee in Defense of the
Rights of the People - CODEP, examines what Oaxaca looks like today in
2008, and what it really means for Oaxaca to return to normal after the
2006 uprising. Corruption, institutionalized repression, and economic
slavery are the standard through which a weak government attempts to hold
itself together and stay in power.

Videos / workshop presented by Simón Sedillo, a human rights filmmaker who
has spent the last 6 years documenting and teaching community-based video
in indigenous communities in Oaxaca, in immigrant communities in the US,
and with youth of color across the US.
