Self Determined Participatory Action of Marginalized Groups: The streets of São Paulo

Interview: Alderon from RedeRua

(clique aqui para a versão portuguesa)

Yesterday a massive interview took place with Alderon from RedeRua. RedeRua is a communication centre that works with all kinds of communication means in order to publish and distribute information and content from the streets and its people.

The interview has a duration of about 1:15h and was recorded at OCAS, a social centre in the neighbourhood of Brás. It is available at archive.org under public domain. Currently, only the complete recording, uncut and unprocessed but already with good audio quality, is available. A cut and “mastered“ version will follow later. The interview is in Portuguese, an English transcription will follow as soon as possible as well.
