My flowers will not die

Adán is a resident of San Salvador Atenco, one of the main populations that have spoken up against Mexico City’s New International Airport (NAICM). He, by reminiscing his past, tells us the reasons why he has defended his stand throughout the years, despite the problems this has brought him. His story is told from the perspective of three other members of the community: a woman who dedicates her life to sustainable engineering and two men who have suffered violence and police brutality for having a different opinion regarding the situation.
