On today’s show, we examine the new geography of war in the context of the “old” geography of Chiapas. We talk with a compa of ours on the ground in Chiapas, who reports on some of the most recent clashes of the low-intensity war in Mitzitón, Bachajón, and Tila. We use these events, and the bigger picture in which they take place, to help us frame the conversation about the new letter from Subcomandante Marcos: “Notes on War.”

In-depth interview with Alejandro Reyes on the current state of repression and low-intensity war in Chiapas being waged against Zapatista communities and human rights organizations. Topics include: big-picture analysis focused on the Proyecto Mesoamérica, “sustainable rural cities,” and ecotourism; detailed reports on repression in Mitzitón, Bachajón, Tila, and the coast region; and some implications of the death of Samuel Ruiz. All in the context of the recent letter from Subcomandante Marcos to Professor Luis Villoro, titled “Notes on War.”
