The Mexico-US Solidarity Network presents: Edith López Ovalle, who will be speaking on "Memory, Culture, and Political Organizing in Mexico"

Edith will be speaking on political organizing and repression, especially her work with HIJOS (http://www.hijosmexico.org/), a transnational organization formed by people whose parents were imprisoned, disappeared or killed in the Latin America’s Dirty Wars in 60s, 70s and 80s. During her talk she will discuss the historical and present-day context of the imprisonment, disappearance and assassination of political dissidents in Mexico; the role of artistic and cultural interventions, as well as political organizing, in confronting human rights abuses; and the Zapatistas' Other Campaign and the role of young urban activists. Edith supports the organization thru her artwork, and you can see it at http://www.edithlopezovalle.ya.st/

Hosted by the Anthropology Department. This event is Free, Wheelchair Accessible, and Open to the Public. Inquiries: Annie Paradise 415.575.6249 aparadise [at] ciis.edu
