TUCSON -- Listen to Louise Benally, Dineh resisting relocation at Big Mountain. Benally joins Mexican American Studies students, and Riley, Choctaw, to speak out against the racism, oppression and imperialism that has led Arizona to forbid ethnic studies. Students speak out on how Mexican American Studies instilled pride in who they are.
The broadcast includes an interview with one of the youths who locked down and was arrested at Salt River Project recently during the ALEC protest in Phoenix. The youths are supporting Navajos protesting the coal-fired power plant Navajo Generating Station, on Navajoland at Page, Ariz. The American Legislative Exchange Council is comprised of corporate profiteers who exploit Indian lands, profiteer from private prisons and the abuse of migrants and coopt Arizona legislators with their cash.
