3 Diario de Oaxaca: A Sketchbook Journal of Two Years in MexicoKuper, Peter PM Press 2009 1604860715 / 9781604860719 Hardcover

New 

1604860715 New. No dust jacket as issued. Brand New! Support Radical Independent Pacific Northwest Booksellers! Sewn binding. Cloth over boards. 208 p. Audience: General/trade. Painting a vivid, personal portrait of social and political upheaval in Oaxaca, Mexico, this unique memoir employs comics, bilingual essays, photos, and sketches to chronicle the events that unfolded around a teachers' strike and led to a seven-month siege. When award-winning cartoonist Peter Kuper and his wife and daughter moved to the beautiful 16th-century colonial town of Oaxaca in 2006, they planned to spend a quiet year or two enjoying a different culture and taking a break from the U.S. political climate under the Bush administration. What they hadn't counted on was landing in the epicenter of Mexico's biggest political struggle in recent years. Timely and compelling, this extraordinary firsthand account presents a distinct artistic vision of Oaxacan life, from explorations of the beauty of the environment to graphic portrayals of the fight between strikers and government troops that left more than 20 people dead, including American journalist Brad Will.

9 Zapatista Encuentro: Documents from the 1996 Encounter for Humanity and Against Neoliberalism (Open Media Series)Zapatistas Seven Stories Press 2003 158322548X / 9781583225486 PAPERBACK

New 

158322548X New. No dust jacket as issued. Brand New! Support Radical Independent Pacific Northwest Booksellers! Glued binding. 64 p. Seven Stories' Open Media. Audience: General/trade. Why is everyone so quiet? Is this the democracy you wanted? So ask the Zapatistas, the group of indigenous Mexicans who, on January 1, 1994, mounted a rebellion against the implementation of NAFTA, political corruption, and the slow, unreported genocide of indigenous people worldwide. As the group expressed their demands and revealed their tactics, it quickly became obvious that they were less an armed guerilla force seeking to seize state power, and much more a social movement seeking to catalyze civil society's full democratic power. For this reason Mexican political analyst Gustava Esteva has called the Zapatista rebellion "the first revolution of the 21st century. " He explains that whereas the revolutions of the 20th century were tests for state power, the Zapatista struggle was for greater local autonomy, economic justice, and political rights within the borders of their own communities. Zapatista Encuentro contains documents and communiqu?s from Subcomandante Marcos-the leader of the Zapatistas-from the 1996 Encounter for Humanity and Against Neoliberalism. This remarkable event brought together 5, 000 activists from all over the world to discuss how globalization (neoliberalism) affects us politically, culturally, economically, and socially.

10 Zapatista Spring: Anatomy of a Rebel Water Project & the Lessons of International SolidarityRyan, Ramor AK Press 1849350728 / 9781849350723 PAPERBACK

New 

1849350728 Eight volunteers converge to help campesinos build a water system in Chiapas?a strategy to bolster the Zapatista insurgency by helping locals to assert their autonomy. These outsiders come to question the movement they've traveled so far to support?and each other?when forced into a world so unlike the poetic communiqués of Subcomandante Marcos?a world of endemic rural poverty, parochialism, and shifting loyalties to the movement. The quiet dignity of the local compañeros and echoes of B. Traven, Conrad, and Camus, round out this epic yarn. "Ramor Ryan is a brilliant story-teller, and Zapatista Spring is impossible to put down. In this vivid account of democracy and solidarity in action, the pages overflow with humanity, wit, and the mountains and mud of Chiapas. This candid story should be read by anyone who has been inspired by the Zapatistas."?Ben Dangl, author of Dancing with Dynamite "Zapatista Spring doesn't read like a history book, and Ryan stops short of producing a personal memoir. Instead, it feels like cracking open an undated personal diary, which, thanks to the author's revolutionary sensibilities, storytelling skills, and sense of humor, translates into a hard-to-put-down read."?Dawn Paley, journalist and research associate with the North American Congress on Latin America "Are you ready to join the motherfuckin' resistance? Well, this job is not for the squeamish or pampered, it's tough fuckin' work. Ramor Ryan doesn't just speak theoretically about the Zapatistas, he lived and worked amongst them. This firsthand account of the most inspiring resistance movement of the turn of the century is a must read for anyone wanting to learn how the Zapatistas did it."?Franklin López, Producer of subMedia.TV "This book is a much-needed counterforce?sympathetic but relentless?to the formulaic proclamations of armchair Zapatistas everywhere. Weaving between story and theory, cynicism and mutual aid, development and despair, Ryan offers an insider's view of the heart of shades at the core of the Zapatista solidarity movement."?Richard J.F. Day, author of Gramsci is Dead Ramor Ryan is an Irish writer and translator based in Chiapas, Mexico, and is the author of Clandestines: The Pirate Journals of an Irish Exile.
