Guatemalan Youth in Defense of Land and Life!

Guatemalan Youth in Defense of Land and Life!

Youth activists speak about defense of land and the environment in Guatemala.

This fall, NISGUA (Network in Solidarity with Guatemala) welcomes Alex Escobar Prado as the featured speaker for this year’s tour, “Guatemalan Youth in Defense of Land and Life!” Alex is an activist, educator, and a member of the Guatemalan environmental justice organization Youth Organized in Defense of Life (JODVID). Born out of the struggle for community self-determination and resistance to Tahoe Resources’ Escobal silver mine in southeastern Guatemala, JODVID uses the arts and popular education to mobilize youth in local and regional movements to protect the environment and defend territory.

As a representative of the youth movement in resistance to mining in the Santa Rosa and Jalapa regions, Alex will share stories and perspectives from his community’s struggle to assert their self-determination and defend their territory against transnational corporate power. Visiting the Midwest and East Coast, the tour will be a unique opportunity to learn about the essential role that Guatemalan youth play in building movements for social justice and liberation, and to hear firsthand accounts of the environmental and community impacts of mining in Guatemala. The tour will also create an opportunity for direct exchange with youth activists in the U.S. fighting for social justice in their communities.

Indigenous Peoples' Day Service of Reconciliation (Oberlin)

Indigenous Peoples' Day Service of Reconciliation (Oberlin)

sundance's picture

Settler colonialism brought genocide, disease, and heartbreak to indigenous populations. It also brought a form of Christianity which sought to obliterate the spirituality of indigenous people with forced conversions and threat of death. Truth-telling is the beginning of reconciliation. This service is one small part of addressing this history and legacy in our nation.

Rally Protesting Genocide of Rohingya in Burma

Rally Protesting Genocide of Rohingya in Burma

Flyer for Rally in Support of Peace in Burma.

From SALAAM MEDIA ADVISORY:

Muslim community and our partners are organizing a rally to protest the Burma military’s genocidal attacks on the Rohingya people.

The Rohingya are indigenous people of Burma living in their ancestral lands.

Their citizenship was revoked in 1982 by a military regime. The UN consider the Rohingya to be the world’s most persecuted people.

The current attacks have forced 290,000 Rohingya to flee to Bangladesh according to the UN. The UN also says that it is not allowed to serve food, water, and medicine to about 400,000 other Rohingya people who have fled to mountains and forest within Burma to avoid persecution. The Burma military attacks worsen as they have recently laid mines on the Bangladesh-Burma border preventing Rohingya to reach safe haven in Bangladesh.
