Fall 2009 Tour

Workshop The Politics of Displacement and Community Self Determination

This workshop identifies several specific institutions, which threaten the lives of average everyday people everywhere. From banks and corporations to non-profits and universities, what role do these institutions have in making the poor stay poor, while making the rich get richer? This workshop also shows how the political devaluation of traditional forms of self governance and self determination, has lead to the degradation of entire sectors of society. Finally this workshop shares some indigenous strategies for community based self determination in guiding struggles for urban community liberation.

Short Film: La Familia Raices

Short documentary on the family and Son Jarocho band ¨Los Raices¨ from Oaxaca. The Raices Family play traditional Son Jaracho music in support of the Oaxacan people's social movement. This traditional Afro-indigenous music originates in the state of Veracruz and is also traditionally played in some parts of the state of Oaxaca. This musical tradition is based upon popular education, collective organizing, and long term self determination for its musicians and instrument makers. The Raices family breaks through the difficulties faced by any family, with music, resistance, and determination.
