Past Events

October 29, 2008: " Teaching Rebellion" In Co-sponsorship with  NLG . HBCLS, College of Education, and MEChA

  • Accompanied by photography and political art, Teaching Rebellion is a compilation of testimonies from longtime organizers, teachers, students, housewives, religious leaders, union members, schoolchildren, indigenous community activists, artists and journalists-and many others who participated in what became the Popular Assembly of the People of Oaxaca. This is a chance to listen directly to those living and driving one of the most important social uprisings of the 21st century.
