NYC Anarchist Forum on ecological campesino resistance in Peru: video

In the seventh YouTube edition of the Moorish Orthodox Radio Crusade, World War 4 Report editor Bill Weinberg, just returned from Peru where he was on assignment for The Progressive, speaks at the Libertarian Book Club's Anarchist Forum on the Quechua indigenous struggle against US-backed mining projects and in defense of land, water and autonomy in the Andes.

ANNOTATION: This event was held May 15 at the Brecht Forum in New York City, but organized by the Libertarian Book Club/Anarchist Forum. The Libertarian Book Club, New York's oldest active anarchist institution, was founded by Jewish and Italian exiles from fascist Europe in 1946. We are not right-wing, capital-L Libertarians. We are left-wing anarchists. When LBC was founded, the word "libertarian" had not yet been co-opted by the free-market right, and was basically a synonym for "anti-authoritarian" or "anarchist." We stubbornly refuse to surrender the name.

The closing music was recorded at the Macroregional Assembly held March 17 in Cajamarca, bringing together popular leaders from throughout northern Peru. The Andean version of the alpine horn prominently featured is called a clarón.
