Latin Waves host Sylvia Richardson is interviewed by the late  Charles Boylan from Vancouver’s Co-op Radio, she speaks about her new book Fleshmapping, Cartography of Struggle, Renewal and Hope in Education

Sylvia L. Richardson is a PhD candidate in the Faculty of Education at Simon Fraser University. She is the host and producer of the internationally syndicated radio program Latin Waves.

A Brief Book synopsis
What can be learned from a story woven out of fragmented moments of joy, pain, horror, and blissful awareness? Flesh Mapping is an attempt to create a pedagogy of shared narrative, place, and politics; to narratively map the injuries of the material, emotional, and spiritual impact of poverty, displacement, hunger and war on an individual life.

The book is an invitation to instructors in education, anthropology, women’s studies, and labor studies to re-imagine education as the praxis for liberation, renewal, and hope. It serves as a process of naming the injuries inflicted on real bodies by privilege and power, like sites on a map. The goal is not simply to name and make visible privilege but to simultaneously create emergent spaces of dissonance in education that can challenge and transform power at the site where the personal is political.

Uprisings In Columbia

Latin Waves host Sylvia Richardson speaks with Common Frontiers director Raul Burbano, about the up rising in Colombia. From April 28 to May 8, the violent actions of the state security forces resulted in the death of least 47 people, the arbitrary detention of 963 people, 28 victims of
eye-related injuries, and 12 victims of sexual violence. In total, they registered 1,876 cases of police violence.  Yet despite the violence people kept coming out in defiance of the latest austerity package introduce by president Duque.  Colombia has been known for decades, as the epicentre for violence against indigenous movements and workers.  A country with seven USA military bases, intimidating their neighbours and its local population. Raul reminds us that revolution is still a dance for people in Latin America, as people correct the history of colonization and conquest of America as a story of unceasing dignity.  Not a day has gone without rebellion to injustice, repression and exploitation.

Global solidarity movement for Palestinians

Latin Waves host Sylvia Richardson speaks with Yves Engler author of the Black Book of Canadian Foreign Policy.

As Israel intensified its occupation over the last decades, it has steadily built settlements, took
control of water supplies, and laid its ‘apartheid wall’ and separate road system across the West Bank (with the consequence of severely damaging
the Palestinian economy). In Jerusalem, Israel has been
persistently ethnically-cleansing East Jerusalem in a deliberate, planned policy of ‘Judaization’ through forced evictions, house demolitions, arcane judicial rulings on housing rights, and building new blocks for Israeli settlers.

Yves Engler speaks of the global solidarity movement for Palestinians, and the lessons in resistance. Why solidarity matters and what is lost when fail to speak and act
against imperialist aggression,
