Grassroots Liberation Project

Donation protected
The Grassroots Liberation Project is born of a commitment to social justice through documenting of the social and ecological movement’s struggles. It seeks to empower community activists in the ghettos of Nairobi in their valiant fight against the many gross human rights violations being perpetrated by the postcolonial state and the brutal, extractive model of capitalist development it is imposing. The Project aims to embody and advance an ethos of true international solidarity, to struggle with and alongside affected communities, to help them empower themselves, and in so doing to transcend – indeed, to burst asunder – the narrow confines and neo-colonial dialectic of charity and dependence.

We work with the Social Justice Movement in Nairobi and are fundraising to amplify and strengthen the movement's struggle for self-determination in Nairobi's informal settlements.  We will be holding grounding discussions with grassroots organizations, documenting and physically participating in their daily struggles. We intend to hold five seminars on contemporary issues, to convene various activities with the Rastafarian and ecological movements, and to develop the concept of the role of arts and political education.
