It’s official! Tiuna el Fuerte: Revolutionizing the Revolution, a Bmedia original we shot in Venezuela is here on your very own computer… So check check it!
Revolutionizing the Revolution is a documentary short following the hip-hop collective Tiuna el Fuerte, a local community collective that uses art, music and culture to transform the barrio of El Valle in Caracas, Venezuela. Situated on an old parking lot they developed into a cultural park using reclaimed materials, Tiuna el Fuerte now hosts a hip-hop school, a youth orchestra, a mobile community radio, and serves as an example for an alternative space for the community. The space is a “nucleus of endogenous cultural development,” exemplifying the concept of local development of the people, for the people, by the people that finds its roots in modern day Venezuela.

When you hear or see something that troubles you make your opinion known. Do something about it. Don’t just sit around and play video games or check your Facebook status.
Here’s a little video that has showed up on the International Student Movement website that chronicles a whole slew of actions against the privatization of education by students around the world. Portland State University is featured at the beginning. Big ups to the peeps in the streets!
