“A film documenting, in their own words, the struggle of activists in Mexico, Honduras and Colombia. Followed by a panel discussion with the filmmaker Manu Valcarce, and the interviewer, Susi Bascon, UK Director of Peace Brigades International, connecting this struggle with world-wide ecological and climate destruction.”
