Autonomía y Austeridad / Relatos Zapatistas en junio

This month’s program, broadcast on June 5, tries to think through the relationship between two concepts: autonomy and austerity. Here we’ve uploaded two interviews as separate segments/files that can be easily downloaded and listened to. The first (both in Spanish and translated into English) deals with the so-called “Spanish Revolution,” the massive popular mobilizations against the electoral system that have been taking place in Spain since May. The second focuses on a series of actions organized against austerity politics and their local manifestations. The two interviews also reflect on the question of how best to articulate an anti-austerity politics that’s at the same time anti-state.

The audios are also available on the Indybay website: 15-M Español, 15-M English, and austerity.

Movimiento de Resistencia al pago de las altas tarifas de la luz

CIVIL RESISTANCE to the payment of high electric power rates

The movement of resistance to the payment of high electric power rates in Mexico, made up of community and neighborhood organizations, was born over 20 years ago. The increasing privatization of the public service by the Federal Electric Commission (CFE) in the hands of transnational companies, especially Spanish, and the continuous and arbitrary increase in rates, has led to a greater coordination of struggles on a regional and national level.

In the state of Chiapas 45% of the country’s hydroelectric energy is generated, which is exported even to Central America. The communities in resistance of Chiapas, independently from the state, have their own electric tecnicians, purchase and install transformers and light posts and send a clear message: “We will not pay for electricity until the San Andres Accords are met”, which were signed between the federal government and the EZLN in 1996, and which deal, among other things, with the control of natural resources.

Relatos Zapatistas April Show

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.”
