Open-air concert for environmental rights in Latin America

Patricia Gualinga

Internationally renowned human rights activist Patricia Gualinga reports on the struggle of the indigenous community of Sarayaku in Ecuador to preserve the rainforest against the interests of large corporations. As a spokeswoman for her village, she is a role model for many women in defending the rainforest.  The history of Sarayaku calls for a radical questioning of the prevailing destructive ways of life and economy. Patricia Gualinga's Spanish narratives, in interaction with the music of Grupo Sal, form a complete collage that informs, questions and moves, translated and moderated by Isabella Radhuber.

The Cologne cult band MEMORIA will perform from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. as a supporting act with powerful musical statements, bridging the gap between two realities, between Europe and Latin America, between prosperity and poverty, as an appeal not to accept these inequalities.

An event organized by the City of Bonn in cooperation with Oro Verde and the Bonn Network for Development around the "Weltbaustelle Bonn” (“World Construction Site Bonn") within the framework of the Bonn SDG Days, which are intended to make the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations better known in the city.
