Extractivism in Latin America

Extractivism in Latin America

If you wonder what extractivism is and why so many people are mobilizing against it, in this video we tell you how it has changed over time and its current effects.

This has been thought as a pedagogical material to contribute in the debates and training spaces of social organizations and interested public, for which we have tried to locate the role of extractivism as part of the world capitalist system, both modern and colonial.

We recommend complementing it with debates on the reality of our spaces in relation to extractivism and with other materials that contribute to training and critical thinking.
