Abya Yala v Obama

Published: December 22, 2010, Author: JayTaber

Abya Yala, the indigenous communications network that met in Colombia last month, has issued a Declaration of The First Continental Summit of Indigenous Communications. The summit, called to develop plans for protecting indigenous identity and culture through strategic use of communications, focused on ways to build production capacity, including a traveling school of communication. Specifically targeting US trade agreements and economic policies that are destroying indigenous peoples, the gathering of indigenous journalists, scholars and leaders made it clear that they consider indigenous communications a key element of their resistance to Obama’s neo-liberal aggression against the Fourth World.
