Abstract

I am a Costa Rican artist and water defender doing a Masters in Environmental Studies in York
University. One of the big reasons that inspired me to enroll in this program was to get a wider
view of the hegemonic powers behind water privatization. and also to learn new tools and
methodologies that could improve my current work. This major project focuses on one case
study: San Rafael river defense. This particular struggle headed by rural communities in the
south of Costa Rica is a successful example of how hegemony can be defeated, at least
temporarily.
