This episode is about the resistance and organization of the indigenous Coca people in the community of Mezcala, Jalisco. Rocio Moreno joins us to talk about the resistance of her community against the racist campaigns of extermination on behalf of the state of Jalisco, Mexico. She talks about women's participation in the collective organization of Mezcala, as well as the importance of the collective memory of her community to keep alive their existence as indigenous peoples. She also emphasized the need to bring awareness on the ecological disaster that are happening in her territory and the need to stop these transnational projects in the midst of Mexico’s so-called “fourth transformation".
