Power to the People!

Paolo Freire, author of Education as the Practice of Freedom and Pedagogy of the Oppressed, would be pleased.

His countryman, Raul Lemesoff, has transformed a Ford Falcon (formerly an armored military vehicle) into a “weapon of mass instruction” as his “contribution to peace through literature.”

He drives through Argentina giving away books.

“Education…becomes the practice of freedom, the means by which men and women deal critically and creatively with reality and discover how to participate in the transformation of their world.”
― Paulo Freire, Pedagogy of the Oppressed
