This is one of the pieces that I developed for a trip to Ecatepec, Mexico in order to connect the struggles of the Indigenous peoples of the Americas who identify politically as Zapatistas with the Indigenous African/Sudanese people who are struggling to survive in Darfur. Global neoliberal policies and practices of predatory planning and development play a role in these genocides ,not only displacement of Indigenous peoples, but perceive them as less worthy than other human beings, as expendable.
