Panagioti Tsolkas of Fighting Toxic Prisons and Nicholas Todd of SOLeducation present films about the intersection of indigenous rights, environmental destruction, and the for-profit prison system. The Pursuit of wealth and empire has always been connected to the oppression of people and the exploitation of the earth.
For over 500 years, European forces have endeavored in genocide against the indigenous residents of the Western Hemisphere. Today in the 21st Century, while the policy and practice of imperialism and murder have been rebranded as "Job Creation" and "Criminal Justice"...We know better.
