¡Viva la Resistencia!

Come and celebrate the launch of Voices of Latin America with the Latin America Bureau and Movimientos at Rich Mix, and hear about the people shaping the future of Latin America from the grassroots up.

With very special guest speakers, bogotana DJ La Vecina spinning her special blend of cumbia, salsa roots and bass, and Latin American food provided by Comida Fest, it will be a night of entertainment, celebration and solidarity.

Voices of Latin America is a multi-author book mapping the region’s current social movements, which includes testimony from 70 interviews collected across 14 countries.

From indigenous and riverside communities in Brazil resisting the expansion of hydroelectric dams, to students going face-to-face with riot police on the streets of Santiago de Chile; from women in Honduras fighting machismo and violence to socially-conscious graffiti artists and musicians in Bogotá and Buenos Aires, Voices is a rich, diverse and fascinating panorama of activists, leaders, journalists, creatives and others who are resisting the status quo.

These are voices which all too often go unheard. They face considerable challenges, including entrenched cultural conservatism; absent, bureaucratic and occasionally hostile state machinery; and sometimes very real danger from non-state actors such as security guards and paramilitary organisations. But their tenacity, energy and bravery is helping to transform their communities and their countries for the better.

Please note: You can purchase a copy of the book along with your ticket. The book will be available for collection on the night.

Date: 18th January 2019
Time: 7pm - 11pm
Tickets: £7.50
Venue: Rich Mix, 35-47 Bethnal Green Rd, London E1 6LA
