Today's show will present information about the Coalition for Immokalee Workers, the corporatocracy, the food industry, indigenous peoples and a political action ascheduled for Stop & Shop headquarters on thursday April 12th, 2012.  I had the great honor to meet Wilson Perez, an organizer and farmworker in the CIW at the recent Decolonize to Liberate Working Group meeting along with his translator and fellow activist, Elena.  Though time and the delegation's schedule did not allow for a direct interview of Wilson Perez, today's episode of "Ancestral Continuum" will share information about the CIW and the political ans social struggle of farmworkers from Guatemala, Mexico and Haiti.  In addition to this report, we will discuss the connection to indigeny and how the Ancestors hold us responsible to  supporting these indigenous people upon whom we depend so much for our sustenance and lifestyle.

Related to our earlier discussions of colonialism and decolonization, the conditions of these farmworkers are brought into perspective as we consider the sytems and historical realities that created these conditions that the modern world is complicit with and must reconcile if we are to redeem ourselves spiritually, energetically under the watchful eye of the Ancestors who want better for ALL of us,
