The Beehive collective's South East Winter 2008 mini tour will feature scenes from MESOAMERICA RESISTE, the final epic chapter in the trilogy, our most ambitious and elaborate illustration to date...4 YEARS in the making and nearly hatched!

M E S O A M E R I C A R E S I S T E !:
The struggle of diversity vs. homogenization in the Americas

We will be presenting the final piece in our trilogy of posters about corporate globalization in the western hemisphere. If you're not familiar with our first 2 works please check out: and

M E S O A M E R I C A R E S I S T E !:

The struggle of diversity vs. homogenization in the Americas. This graphic takes a critical look at Project Mesoamerica (formerly "Plan Puebla Panama")- a development plan designed to facilitate the exploitation of resources by corporate interests in Central America, and transform much of its land to create more "efficient" trade routes for global markets. This elitist plan is a threat to the very survival of unique and important ecosystems and traditional cultures. Our presentation illustrates many inspiring and successful examples of resistance to this top down development through horizontal community based organizing.

Together, these graphics tell stories of resource extraction, militarization, and development in Latin America, drawing clear connections between the colonial history of the Western Hemisphere and contemporary patterns of corporate globalization, violence, and racism. Using these graphics as a springboard for discussion, the beehive collective works to analyze and dismantle the forces at work in our capitalist society through a metaphorical lens of stories from the natural world.

For the past several years, Bees have been touring the Americas and Europe with these two graphics in tandem. With two enormous, highly detailed, hand illustrated portable murals, and an engaging slide show narrative, the Bees have awed and inspired audiences with a presentation intended to be understood by anyone - not just the experts and political analysts!
