there will be a talk and Q&A with Mario Cardozo at IC on Wed OCT 15 4pm-515pm, Friends 302.

Mario Cardozo is from ACOOC (Collective Action for Conscientious Objectors), which views nonviolent action as a political strategy against the violent and militarized responses to social justice issues that have historically occurred in Colombia. One of the main methods of the Colombian state is recruitment of young men from excluded sectors of society who are forced to serve an obligatory military service, feeding the largest military in all of Latin America.

Many of the actions of ACOOC and Mario Cardozo are collective works created and shared through theater and music. He is the winner of the Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Award 2014. this award celebrates the greatness of people from around the world who are making a difference in their communities and beyond.
