Fiscal Policy and the Rights of Indigenous and Afro-descendant Peoples

This brief, informative video captures powerful insights from Indigenous and Afro-descendant leaders from Peru and Colombia discussing how unjust fiscal policies both reflect and perpetuate systemic racism and discrimination against their communities.
Filmed at a workshop in Bogotá that was hosted by CESR and Colombian Indigenous rights organization Akubadaura, with the support of the Ford Foundation, the video explores the role of tax privileges granted to extractive industries in depriving communities of much-needed resources, and highlights the need for closer alliances across struggles for fiscal, environmental and racial justice.
