Resistance against extractivism in Central America.
Widerstand gegen Extraktivismus in Mittelamerika.
Since the conquest of Latin America the economy bases on exploitation of resources. Extractivism is a development strategy which means the highest exploitation possible of resources and land and which influences the economic and social structure of the subcontinent to the present. Mesoamerica covers the whole spectrum of this model: exploitation of precious metal, huge dam projects, agro-industrial monocultures. But there is resistence as the movie “Resistencia!” shows.
