A vision of solidarity in words and song by Cecilia Vicuña

“How to be in solidarity when there is no possibility of being solid or whole, when things are broken and vulnerable?”, María Berríos asked me. With this question in mind, I will travel down into the depths of the forgotten imagination that gave birth to the idea of solidarity. Speaking in songs and images, I will narrate my sorrow for its loss, going as far as I can, into the core of the present neglect. “Why this deviation, this deviated humanity?”, the Mbyá Guaraní people of the Paraguayan rain forest ask, persecuted and expelled from their forest and land.
