"el machete: la lucha por el poder popular" is Proyecto Autogestion'sdebut film project. All the camera-persons are indigenous community members, mostly women and youth, organizing under the auspices of CODEP, the Committee Organized in Defense of the People's Rights, based in Oaxaca, Mexico. The editing was completed through collective media arts workshops, which now, along with donated equipment, have contributed to the ability of CODEP to edit its own film projects from now on.
“Proyecto Autogestion” is the fusion of El Enemigo Común and Palenque Urbana in an attempt to challenge models of international solidarity with communities in resistance by contributing to their self-empowerment through media workshops and equipment.
