6:00 PM Exhibition: Images of Resistance in Mexico Photography can tell us stories. The exhibition Aquí el pueblo manda! (Here the people rules!) portrays faces and stories that the system denies, pretends to hide or disguise as "folklore."

The photos-stories of this exhibition introduce us to peoples who refuse to be ignored or annihilated and instead keep resisting in one way or another. They are images of Indigenous communities building Zapatista autonomy; faces of Ayotzinapa parents and students protesting in Mexico City; or fists of women demanding no more femicides and claiming “respect our lives!" They are also photos taken while she traveled together with the National Indigenous Congress (CNI) in their campaign “Struggle for Life”.
