Entre Aguas, a land defender and artist from Colombia will lead a workshop on resistance to megaprojects in South America. Entre is a representative from Ríos Vivos (Living Rivers), a social movement of dam affected communities in Colombia that struggle in defence of their territories and rivers, and for an energy model that is by and for the people.
The Beehive Collective will be displaying their art from their MesoAmérica Resiste and True Cost of Coal campaigns, in which they combine graphic design, storytelling, and grassroots activism to document and share diverse stories of communities defending their sovereignty and building alternatives to top-down development plans.
Lastly, we will be treated to a performance by Testament of Test Their Logik, an Ontario-based hip-hop duo known widely for merging the consciousness of political activism with the attitude and directness of rap music. For 7 years they’ve toured this planet supporting social movements and freedom fighters at the frontlines of struggles against the tyranny and violence of the powerful.
