Mexican researcher Ramon Vera, member of international organization GRAIN, spoke on Tuesday at the “Forum on Climate crisis, technological threats and Methodologies for Resistance”, in San Jose, Costa Rica. He expressed the need to understand that knowledge is built collectively if we are to think of social resistance processes.
Real World Radio’s correspondent in Costa Rica, Henry Picado, interviewed Vera during the event.
The Mexican researcher is the editor in chief of “Biodiversidad, Sustento y Culturas”, a magazine produced by Latin American social movements and organizations.
He pointed out that “knowledge consists in a network of relationships built from language”. Therefore, the knowledge belongs to a group of people and communities, and they become one of the greatest common goods of humanity because they are built based on specific contributions from the people who make up the communities.
The seminar tried to understand where we are as individuals and to reflect about what surrounds us. There was a focus on the importance of using and building maps to understand the power relationships in our regions.
The activity highlighted that the events and recollections of the collective memory “are a tool for autonomy”. It is a way to systematize experiences in order to tell about them and they are useful for the resistance processes.
