Skildpaddetanker - fra en forurroliget verden

I Skildpaddetanker skriver Mickey Gjerris fra en foruroliget verden – om det, der er så banalt, at det burde være let at få øje på, men alligevel hele tiden flimrer bort i hverdagens hamsterhjul.  Læs blandt andet om at håbe på, at de voksne nok skal komme og ordne det hele – og indse, at man selv er voksen; om morgenkaffe og skyld; om dyrevelfærd og klima; om amerikansk fodbold og aktiv dødshjælp – og om at finde overskud til at sige ”pyt”.

Based on the experience of thirty-six Guaraní communities in the Bolivian Chaco, Anthias reveals how two decades of indigenous mapping and land titling have failed to reverse a historical trajectory of indigenous dispossession in the Bolivian lowlands.
