AUDIO – Contra Aztlán Plática

contra_aztlan_platica

We are happy to share the audio recorded by Marco Amador at the Contra Aztlán event which took place at La Conxa in Boyle Heights, a space run by Las Ovas on Sept 5th, 2018. The discussion here was frank, open and at times confrontational. Things were said that we did not agree with, but others in the group would interject and point out how so-and-so could be in the wrong, or mistaken. The participants spanned generations and different identities; would switch from English to Spanglish to Spanish; came from different political positions; but we all shared a desire to interrogate what is, not only, Chicano Nationalism but what is Chicanx identity in relation to other oppressed identities. We may help facilitate another event on this same topic in the coming weeks, so if you have any reactions to this audio please keep an eye out for a future event. If you cannot make it you can always send us your responses as a comment on here or email us at ediciones-ineditos@protonmail.com.

Here is a breakdown of the audio.
