"Guarda Bosques" (Forest Keepers) 45 min.
On April 15th 2011, when organized crime thugs teamed up with the logging industry and different government agencies to pillage precious and sacred forests at gun-point, the indigenous Purepecha community of Cheran, Michoacan, Mexico rose up with sticks, rocks, and bottle rockets against what can only be described as their local narco-government. Since then, they have taken the authorities offices, weapons, and pick-up trucks, ousted all political parties and all local and state police, and have re-established a traditional form of self-governance that includes its own council of elders, a community "police", known as a "ronda", and its own forest defense team, or forest keepers, known as the "Guarda Bosques."
El 15 de abril de 2011, después de que los matones del crimen organizado se habían unido con la industria maderera y distintas agencias del gobierno para saquear los bosques preciosos y sagrados con la fuerza de las armas, la comunidad indígena Purépecha de Cherán, Michoacán, México, se levantó con palos, piedras y cohetones contra lo que sólo se puede describir como su narco-gobierno. Desde entonces, han tomado control de las oficinas de las autoridades, sus armas y sus camionetas para luego echar fuera a todos los partidos políticos y todos los policías locales y estatales. Han re-establecido una forma de auto-gobernación tradicional que incluye su consejo de ancianos, su "policía" comunitaria, conocida como "la ronda," y su propio equipo para la defensa de los bosques, conocido como los "Guardabosques."

The Sanctuary for Independent Media welcomed Austin, TX-based folk musician Eliza Gilkyson and activist Rob Jensen on November 16, 2008.
The duo intertwined songs and speeches throughout the night to present a collection of beautiful music and radical discussion.
Empire, Economics and Ecology are the Three E's.
Part 2 of 4: In this clip, Eliza introduces her husband and shares with the audience the way in which Jensen's perspective has influenced her own beliefs and her songwriting. Jensen then begins his presentation on justice, sustainability and his idea of the "Three E's": empire, economics and ecology.
In this lecture, author and professor Robert Jensen explores the realities of pornography. His analysis is rooted in a framework of sexual violence rather than seeing it pornography as an issue of expression or "fantasy." Consequently, his insights place pornography in its appropriate context within patriarchy.
It's a similar analysis to the one presented in his book "Getting Off: Pornography and the End of Masculinity".
To purchase his book from Amazon click on the image, or visit your local bookstore. Thank you.
