Stories from 30 May 2018

“Communication can help raise awareness about our cause as the Mapuche Nation and People”

" I think the main words of the [Mapuche] people are ‘culture,’ ‘Newen,’ or land, ‘spiritual,’ ‘spirituality,’ ‘worldview,’ ‘society,’ as well as ‘autonomy,’ and ‘language’ since we are a Nation."

“We are looking for equality, but we are also aiming for equity.”

"Especially at a local level, I would want the words “black feminism” to be present."

“Esmeraldas is a united town”

"When talking about the 'border,' I’d say tranquility, respect, equality, and peace above all else."

“There are some areas (of Esmeraldas) that are in conflict, but that's not the entire province.”

"Diversity, growth, rights, plurality, versatility, love, peace, unity, and other [words] fit within our town’s identity."
