Organizer/AuthorWatsonville Brown Berets
Simon Sedillo Spring 2009 Tour

Simón Sedillo is a community rights defense organizer and film maker whose work has centered on placing skills, cameras and editing equipment in the hands of communities in resistance so that they may be able to document their own histories and human rights situation. Sedillo has spent the last 6 years documenting, producing and teaching community based video documentation in indigenous communities, in immigrant communities and with youth of color across the US and Mexico.

Simon Sedillo offers perspectives on global implications of the Oaxacan people’s struggle for communities in the United States.

Through lectures, workshops, and screenings Sedillo helps open a powerful space for dialogue on the effects of neoliberalism on indigenous communities, immigrant communities, and communities of color in the US and Mexico.

If you are interested in a fearless analysis and current perspective on the situation in Oaxaca which links to the same issues on a global scale, you must attend one of Simon’s presentations. There are few people doing this work so fearlessly and truthfully.
