July 2018: ‘Communities of Social Assistance and Resistance’

Oaxaca 20The San Pablo Center, Oaxaca, Mexico

Regional lead: Benjamin Smith, Reader of Latin American History, University of Warwick

This workshop brought together scholars, activists and representatives of Cheran (center of the indigenous self defense groups) and the San Pablo Center, Oaxaca (an indigenous language center in Oaxaca City). They met to discuss the politics surrounding issues of how poverty has historically been linked to race, and how indigenous communities have sought to alleviate poverty through organic, non-institutional redistribution schemes.
