Ana and Luciano articulated the various modes of violence as they were necessary in the radical autonomous indigenous movement from Oaxaca and Chiapas, Mexico, the Zapatistas.Mathjis is depicting a notion of Prefigurative Politics via the relationship between labor, work, freedom and the political as it appears in Hannah Arendt’s The Human Condition.

Sara has been unpacking a powerful radical gender-inclusive militant Iranian resistance movement, Mojahedin-e-Khalq. The MEK, originating in the mid 1960’s, was a crucial anti-patriarchical element in the broader desires to overthrow the Islamist Regime in Iran.  Sara employs a series of discourse analysis to examine in how and why the MEK gets described as ‘Mothers,’ Monsters,’ ‘Whores,’ and “Victims of Indoctrination.’
