The case of indy media and indigenous people council of biocolonialism

This paper analyzes the ways in which specific appropriation of new media, the Internet particularly, can allow us to observe new conjunctural articulations of democracy. De b’Béri argues that emerging practices of memory through new technology of communication illustrate a ‘shift’ in modernity. This is seen particularly in certain monopolies of knowledge and cultural expressions if we admit that ‘modernity’ is a centre through which certain histories are selected and given greater value, and other kind of histories positioned in the margins. This also occurs if we locate modernity within all colonial and imperial processes that led to the politics of emancipation, by any means necessary.
