Show Notes

Colonization is a political agenda of an ideology quite often associated with forcing non-westernized peoples who suffer from the consequences of colonization, in the appropriation of land use benefiting the colonizer. This is quite often rationalized as the eminent good for all people, including the Original Peoples of a particular region, in this case the Indigenous peoples of Cauca in Colombia, South America.
Guest for the Full Hour: Dr. Manuel Rozental
Tiokasin catches up with “First Voices Radio” friend and regular guest Dr. Manuel Rozental with a report on current events from Colombia and Abya Yala including recent events in Chile involving the Mapuche people and the progressive government of Gabriel Boric.

Dr. Manuel Rozental is a long-time Colombian activist, researcher and community organizer. Manuel has been involved with grassroots political organizing with youth, Indigenous communities, and urban and rural social movements for four decades. He is part of an initiative: Pueblos en Camino, Peoples on the Path with a mandate to weave autonomies and resistance between peoples.
