Skipping Out
15 Feb 2009

Report from Bolivia: Pushing Back Against Corporate Globalization
13 Feb 2009
WHEN: Friday, February 20th, 2009, FREE

WHERE: The Jamaica Plain Forum, 6 Eliot St. Jamaica Plain, MA

In the United States, many of us experience the benefits of globalization and carry only a vague understanding of the impact that it has on less powerful countries. Thus, it becomes our responsibility to listen to the stories that come from the communities that are the most effected by our global lifestyle. “Dignity and Defiance,” a new collection of stories from Bolivia, delivers just that.

Based on extensive interviews and first-hand accounts, “Dignity and Defiance” is a powerful eyewitness account of Bolivia’s decade-long rebellion against globalization imposed from abroad. It weaves together stories of regular people striving to make their lives better along with vivid accounts of the political struggles that have made Bolivia international front-page news.
