DON'T GIVE UP YOUR VOICE! is at first glance about Argentina, but it is also about the USA. Argentina elected its Trump, Mauricio Macri, a year before we elected ours. The two are quite similar in the tone of their campaigns and the policies they are promoting once in office. But Argentines are resilient, and they have fought right wing governments before.
DON'T GIVE UP YOUR VOICE! looks at the widespread and creative resistance to Macri's policies-- in organized labor, at worker coops, street protests, theater and music. The film offers instructive parallels with the situation in the US, while illustrating the power of collective action.
