Hydroelectric dams, community rupture and resistance

Susanne Hofmann talks to anthropologist and activist Mónica Montalvo from Sandía Digital about the history of hydroelectric projects in Mexico and resistance against them, with examples from Jalisco and Nayarit. They highlight the coloniality of those infrastructure projects that cause displacement and community rupture, but also discuss possible energy solutions that are small-scale, community-managed and sustainable. This podcast is in Spanish.
