This week we speak with Toby and Ben, two organizers with Root Force about industrial civilization and organizing in solidarity with indigenous communities against the spread of capitalist infrastructure projects in Latin America. We talk about La Parota Dam in Mexico, Anillo Periférico Highway in El Salvador and Corridors of the Future across North America.

Root force aims to stop the spreading of those infrastructure projects (bridges, dams, highways, factories...) that allow for the spread of neoliberal capitalism into comparatively less "developed" environments in hopes of helping protect environments and their stewards and force an economic retraction of imperial projects of the north.
