Afro-Indigenous and Afro-Descendent Peoples’ Fight to Defend Their Territories
Hide Details21min 45s

In today's episode, we’re going to look at the struggle by afro-descendent and afro-indigenous peoples to defend their territory in the face of capitalist development and violent efforts at territorial dispossession, which are underpinned by systemic racism.

We will speak with Maria Miyela Riascos, an educator, anthropologist and member of the Buenaventura Civic Strike Committee, which coordinated a civil strike that paralized the port city in Colombia in early 2017 in protest over lack of services, insecurity, and long-standing government neglect. 

We also talk to Carla Garcia, International Relations Coordinator at OFRANEH, the Honduran Black Fraternal Organization, who speaks about her people’s world vision and their effort to protect their ancestral land.
