August 8th, 2010 marked the 20th and final Under The Volcano, a cultural and political festival that has long given voice to marginalized and indigenous communities. To honor their contribution, we presented a broadcast of one of the workshops at the 19th Under The Volcano, entitled From Gaza to Gustafsen, which detailed the links and similarities between the Palestinian struggle and the struggle of the indigenous people here against settler colonialist aggression.
