EDUCA: “Developmental” Politics and Indigenous Resistance in Oaxaca, Mexico

As a civil and independent nonprofit organization, EDUCA aims at strengthening citizenship, social involvement, and local government by promoting holistic community development, social organization and civic initiatives in public policy to improve the quality of life and strengthen political participation mainly for indigenous communities of Oaxaca.
We spoke with Juliette Allen, a Montreal student who has been living in Oaxaca for three months and interning at EDUCA, about her film La Madre de Nuestras Aguas regarding the effects of the construction of a dam in Rio Verde, and the injustice that is combated by the organization on a bigger scale.
