Until the Rulers Obey: Voices From Latin American Social Movements on Monday, September 22nd.
Clifton Ross and Marcy Rein, editors of Until the Rulers Obey: Voices From Latin American Social Movements, will give a presentationon Monday, September 22nd, at 7:00 pm in Anderson Student Center, North Woulfe Hall. Free and open to the public.
Clifton Ross and Marcy Rein will talk about the social movements in 21st century Latin America that have swept governments to power, sustained occupations of housing, land and factories, and rewritten the histories of their countries over the last decade. Their work gives voice to long silent—or silenced—groups, including indigenous peoples, the rural and urban poor, women, youth, laborers, and LGBT communities in 15 countries of Latin America. The topic is especially timely and relevant in light of the recent explosion of social activism on this continent and in Africa and the Middle East.
