Bolivian Anarchism and Indigenous Resistance: Interview with Silvia Rivera Cusicanqui
III_Cumbre__final_.jpgThe South American nation of Bolivia has filled the headlines of the global press with their fight against water privatization, struggle for nationalization of gas, non-compliance with free trade policies, and the election of South America’s first indigenous president, Evo Morales. These struggles are rooted in the long history of indigenous resistance to colonialism and imperialism in Bolivia. In an interview conducted during her recent stay in Pittsburgh, subaltern theorist, Aymara sociologist, and historian Silvia Rivera Cusicanqui discussed Bolivian Anarchism, the health benefits of the Coca plant, and the Cocaleros' (Coca Growers') fight for sovereignty.

“There is No Apolitical Moment” – An interview with Majority Rules director Michael Burns
MajorityRules1.jpgMichael Burns’ films are challenging. Not challenging in the respect that they’re difficult to decipher, but in that they challenge the audience to take a stand and to face serious defects in our political system. They’re not optimistic films. There’s no room for optimism when one honestly assesses the evidence in world affairs today. To present any other picture would be deeply dishonest. But there’s a critical difference between optimism and hope. Burns’ films are hopeful in that they propose that if we frankly confront the extent of the problems we face (be they America’s unfortunate two-party dominance, the White House’s pre-emptive war policy, or the systematic dismantling of any recognizable notion of democracy) then we have a chance to correct them. Without this first critical step, the kernel of hope that’s buried inside our major collective crises won’t be accessible.
