A Country of Peoples Without Owners: The Indigenous and Popular Minga of 2008

WBAI’s Wake Up Call & First Voices – Indigenous Radio, in collaboration with Deep Dish TV and the Colombian Movement for Peace,
present the New York Premiere of the long-anticipated documentary

A Country of Peoples Without Owners:
The Indigenous and Popular Minga of 2008

Monday, June 29th at 7:00pm The Labowitz Theater of NYU (715 Broadway at Washington Place) in Manhattan

Colombia will never be the same after those 61 historic days of the “Indigenous and Popular Minga,” which was initiated on October 11th 2008, and culminated in a massive rally in the Simón Bolivar Plaza in downtown Bogotá on a rainswept afternoon in late November. From the department of Cauca, people of dignity rose up, united together with the “other Colombia,” to walk the word of resistance. The government of Colombian President Alvaro Uribe confronted this peaceful mobilization with force, resulting in at least two deaths and 120 wounded, some severely.

This documentary shows us what happens when the poorest and most marginal people confront, without weapons, the most powerful regime of Latin America. The response is apparent in the wisdom of the five-point agenda that provided the fuel for the Popular Minga.

The film “A Country of Peoples: Without Owners” was conceptualized, written, edited and produced by the Communication Team of the Association of Indigenous Councils of Northern Cauca, ACIN.

All donations/proceeds collected from this event will be used to help get ACIN’s community radio station Radio Payumat, back on the air after it was sabotaged in late December.

DVD's of the documentary will be made available for donations of $25.00 or more!

This event will be co-hosted by WBAI’s Mario Murillo, host of Friday Wake Up Call, and Tiokasin Ghosthorse, host of First Voices-Indigenous Radio.
