"Dismantling Monoculture: ¡MesoAmerica Resiste!" Join the Beehive Collective for a picture storytelling performance that covers their new graphic "Mesoamerica Resiste!" This graphic takes a critical look at Project Mesoamerica (formerly "Plan Puebla Panama")- a development plan designed to facilitate the exploitation of resources by corporate interests in Central America, and transform much of its land to create more "efficient" trade routes for global markets just as early European monarchies set out to do 500 years ago. This elitist plan is a threat to the very survival of unique and important ecosystems and traditional cultures. Our presentation illustrates many inspiring and successful examples of resistance to this top down development through horizontal community based organizing.
