Defending Corn and Culture in Oaxaca, Mexico

November 7, 2011
Portland, Oregon

Eleazar Garcia will address the devastating impacts the North American Free Trade Agreement has had on the Mexican countryside, including an abandonment of traditional sustainable ways of life of small farmers, as well as a boom in rural Mexican migration to the United States.

When: Monday, November 7th, 7:00-10:00 pm

Where: St. Luke's Lutheran Church (6835 SW 46th Avenue in Portland)

Speaking from his experience of seeing this devastation first hand, Eleazar will not only share the negative impacts of this free trade model, but will also present a hopeful alternative that is being carried out to preserve the land and to stem the tide of migrants leaving rural Mexico for the U.S.
