Presentation of the book ENSEÑANDO REBELDÍAS, plus photographic exhibition and political art.
Enseñando Rebeldía (2011) is a compilation of testimonies from organizers, teachers, students, housewives, religious leaders and many others who participated in what became the Popular Assembly of the Peoples of Oaxaca (APPO).
“The book Enseñando Rebeldía is not, nor does it pretend to be, a manual on how to rebel. But it shows us two decisive issues: that we can all be rebels, that the capacity to rebel does not nest in special people or in enlightened collectives, and that people become rebels by participating in collective rebellions, because individual rebellions, however valuable they may be, are doomed to failure.”
Raúl Zibechi, author of Autonomías y emancipaciones: Latin America in Movement, among others.
