Remembering Nochixtlán: State Violence and Global Resistance
Remembering Asunción Nochixtlán: State Violence, Building Bridges and Global Struggles of Resistance
Through an exhibit of photographs and a short documentary this event will first emphasize the aftermath of the attack on Nochixtlán, Oaxaca, Mexico that occured on June 19, 2016, after a majority of teachers and community members in Oaxaca had been protesting against neoliberal education reforms. The exhibit will occur from 12-1PM. There will be an altar for those who have suffered under state-violence (please feel free to bring photos for the altar). While the photographs will remain up, the second part to the event will be a panel from 1-3PM.
The panelist will consist of individuals speaking about state-violence more broadly and the efforts by ordinary people to partake in mobilization, education, self-determination, and resistance. They include Elybeth Alcantar (San Diego), Mariela Dieguez (San Diego), Bayan Abusneineih (Ethnic Studies Grad. Student, UCSD), Marcie Rojas (Jessie Program Mentorship/Women Studies Grad Student, SDSU), Ryth A. Mendez (Anakbayan-San Diego), Aundrey Jones (Ethnic Studies Grad. Student, UCSD). Moderated by Kim Marie Clark (Communications Grad. Student, UCSD).
