Under the Volcano 20th anniversary 2010

After 20 years UTV has decided to close this chapter of our history by making our 20th anniversary our final event. For two decades we have organized in solidarity with local and global social justice movements and have staunchly supported marginalized peoples struggles. We have survived and thrived and now it’s time to say goodbye. Come celebrate cultures of resistance, activism and community!
