Film Screening + Discussion: "Raising Resistance"
Location:Gasteig München, Vortragssaal der Bibliothek, Rosenheimer Str. 5
Soy wastelands as far as the eye can see--monocultures that are only profitable with genetically modified seeds, pesticides, and large-scale technology. This film portrays the fight of Paraguayan small farmers against a powerful alliance of property owners and the government, when the farmers' existence stands in the way of "progress." In the film, the farmers, as well as agricultural engineers, soy barons, and political authorities, are given the microphone. While police guns often put an end to the Campesinos' protests, their resistance continues.
