Subject

Testimonio about World March

Description

. Cristóbal is a local leader and cultural organizer from Peru. He hosted the international marchers held a teach-in about what ancient astronomy can teach the world today about north-south relations. Cristobal’s testimony invites people to imagine maps that, based on ancient astronomy, represent the globe with the line of the equator as vertical axis that unites rather than divide the people of the world. He argues these new representations can become peace tools as they show egalitarian relationships between north and south, based on indigenous rather than imperialist Western views.
