…. the floor I was standing on broke into a thousand pieces….

A memory triggers imagination, a new possibility is born: to join broken pieces. In the process  the paradox of making broken parts of an imaginary whole came up.

A Primitive e-motion


Anger
caused by the continuous human rights violations in my home country.

ANger
for the inequity repartition of the wealth extracted from our mountains, rivers, and oceans.

AnGer
for finding out how multinationals like Chiquita brand, coca cola, barrick gold and AngloGold Ashanti have been supporting paramilitaries;

AngEr
for how community lands, rivers and ecosystems are being despoiled and devoured by mining activities in Latin America;

AngeR
because exploitation and direct foreign investment (DFI) had not brought the promised “civilisation, progress and development”
Instead it had caused the increase of poverty, violence and it had brought prostitution, alcoholism and drug addiction to remote villages.

ANGeR
because of the rights of farming,
indigenous communities
and afro-descendants
are increasingly ignored in the race to grab land and water.

AnGeR
because colonialism practices have not finished, multinational corporations based in Global North in alliance with weak governments and corrupted institutions in Global South execute neo-colonial models to feed private capitals that are profiting from the suffering of the other (ex-colonies).

Hunger
for minerals is a growing threat to the necessities for life of all in The Global

North

and

South
