Information 560: A Reframed Headline

Hello and welcome to the onda-info 560.

Our first post takes you to the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca. The indigenous communities living there suffered from Covid-19 in a special way. Because life in the collective and not as an individual is of crucial importance to them. Due to the contact restrictions, this was reduced to a minimum, which primarily had an effect on the mayordomias, the village festivals, which strengthened cohesion and created identity. You can find out how the communities dealt with it in a report by Miriam Flores. This article first appeared on Radio Matraca and can also be heard in Spanish through our website.

Pamela Cuadros and Nils Brock take you to Brazil. There they pursued the question of how the Internet can be made more democratic. There are now a number of successful local Internet providers and non-commercial initiatives worldwide, but only a few of them rely on modern fiber optic technology. The report by the two reveals why things are different in Brazil.

In our third article, we examine the effects of the corona pandemic on the economy and the environment. Knut Hildebrandt’s listener is one of the last of our project “New Normal in Times of the Corona Pandemic”, which is coming to an end. You can find all of the articles, radio and video contributions created as part of the project on our website under the menu item “Current projects/New normality”.

The ondistas wish you an interesting half hour.
