December 2013 Show

For our December show, we spotlight some of the dynamic interventions being led by students and young people in the US and Mexico. With the ever-increasing privatization and militarization of public institutions, students and young people are continually at the forefront of resisting incorporation into the neoliberal social order. They find themselves  working against the high costs of capitalist education and the repression experienced by the state.  The struggles highlighted here center questions of wealth distribution, the increasing criminalization of protest, prevalence of voter fraud in so-called democratic states and the capitalist appropriation of public education.

We end today’s show by wrapping up our conversation on land struggles from our November show. We want to highlight a project that grates against capitalist structures and imagines, at least through small fragments, another possibility for community regeneration. This is embodied through the work of compañer@s at the ethnobotanical garden in Cholula, Puebla, where relations with the land and people are based in respect, support and dignity.
