From Pandora Hopkins, who has voted with her own feet:
Voting With Their Feet is an oral history project designed to document politically-motivated emigration from the United States during the last quarter century, from the Reagan administration, or even before, to the present time.
It consists principally of recorded interviews with individuals who have chosen to leave the United States, driven away by the implementation of a series of reactionary social, political, economic and military policies. The tape recordings and accompanying materials will be housed in an archive to be used for academic purposes and only with the written permission of the contributors.
The immediate aim of the project is the publication of material from the taped interviews in book form, a work to be edited by Victoria Fontan, Ph.D, (Costa Rican office) and Pandora Hopkins, Ph.D. (Mexican office), with Angelica Perez Paulin G., coordinator of the Mexican Regional Collection.
This is a global project documenting the dissatisfaction of U.S. citizens with their government's policies over the last quarter century and more. If you are one of the people who decided at some point to "walk with their feet," let us know. We would very much like to hear from you. Please contact us by telephone or e-mail.
