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.”

This interview originally aired on April 3 during Relatos Zapatistas, which broadcasts from West Oakland the first Sunday of every month from 4-6 pm on Berkeley Liberation Radio (104.1 fm). You can check out all our shows here and here.
