Just back from Venezuela, G1 and RodStarz speak of what they saw and what inspired them. They are introduced by Jesús Rodríguez-Espinoza.

The brothers give the back story of their 10 year relationship with the Venezuelan revolution starting when President Hugo Chavez visited the South Bronx and offered free heating oil to the people in the poorest Congressional District in the United States; but also the site of Hip Hop resistance to the environmental racism that made that community the dumping ground for the regions toxins and garbage.

They speak of the role of Hip Hop and cultural production in building revolutionary resilience to the US war on the Bolivarian revolution and the need for a new media model that enables communication verses the corporate indoctrination that leaves only consumers who are vulnerable to manipulation by imposed shortages of basic goods.
