Following the success of our Viva Pacifico event with War On Want back in March we've joined forces again to present "Voices of Dissent: Amandla Awethu! Power to the People!"

"Building Global Resistance against Neoliberal Violence and the Criminalisation of Protest in South Africa, Mexico and the United Kingdom"


Featuring music from
WARA
and
DJ Cal Jader

As well as spoken word from
Pete the Temp
and
Zareen

And speakers from
Housing Assembly (South Africa)
Radical Housing Network
London Mexico Solidarity
London Black Revs
and
Defend the Right to Protest

------

The last decade has seen more people take to the streets in acts of dissent. Protest actions have exploded around the world becoming more popular amongst people who are feeling marginalised and oppressed by the dominant neo-liberal socio-economic and political framework.

From Boston to Brixton to Blikkiersdop to Buenaventura to Ayotzinapa, disillusioned people have voiced their anger and are organising against police brutality and state sanctioned structural and active violence.

Join Frontline activists from South Africa, Mexico and the UK to discuss the issues that bring us together as we seek to build global solidarity.

This event is part of the speaker tour organised by War on Want. The tour, which runs from the 6-17 July 2015, has been put together to raise awareness and build global resistance against the violence of neoliberalism and its infringements on human rights.
