Zapatista News & Analysis

!. Raúl Zibechi: What I learned from the Mexican people– Zibechi was in Mexico City when the earthquake struck on September 19. He describes what he witnessed: the solidarity of the Mexican people, the role of the State (including the Armed Forces) and the role played by financial capital. This is an excellent eye witness account and political analysis.
