Podcast – The indigenous resistance against megaprojects

Gio B’at’z spoke, recently, on the Tom & Ethel Bradley Center podcast, Emancipated, on a book he is working on about the Maya Ixil resistance and the struggle against mega-projects in Guatemala. During the talk, he discusses state-sponsored violence, the persecution of human rights defenders and activists, the negative impact of mega-projects on the Indigenous communities, and the historical land inequality in Guatemala.
