How much do we love Chile’s Ana Tijoux? A lot.
Here is her latest video, “Somos Sur,” featuring Palestinian artist Shadia Mansour.
This is what Tijoux said about the song and the video:
‘Somos Sur’ is about the importance of resistance, not only in Chile, but around the world. Global resistance movements, whether in Latin America, Africa or the Middle East, are fighting against the same patterns of violence that have repeated themselves throughout history. Which means many of these groups share a similar set of demands. We are asking for a free Palestine just like we’re asking for an independent Wallmapu in Chile, without police control.
By the way, the rest of Tijoux’s new album, called Vengo is just as good. Check it out here.
