The following video is the introduction to the closing statements from the Magdalena gathering, which was the last of four regional gatherings that took place in the days leading up to the Intercontinental Indigenous Encuentro in Vicam, Sonora, Mexico.

NOTE: Rather than repeat what’s been already said about the Encuentro, I’m going to end there for now—though there is a recent 47-minute audio show (in english) from Radio Zapatista that’s worth listening to. (You can find it below.)

Beyond that, we can expect more videos in the coming months… As they become available, I will be sure to add them here.

We're fighting for our lives

Indigenous Peoples are putting their bodies on the line and it's our responsibility to make sure you know why. That takes time, expertise and resources - and we're up against a constant tide of misinformation and distorted coverage. By supporting IC you're empowering the kind of journalism we need, at the moment we need it most.
