JOHN ROSS
speaks on The "Sexta" - The Zapatistas and Mexico's Presidential Election

New College Theater, 777 Valencia St, San Francisco

John Ross, award-winning journalist, activist, poet, human shield and globetrotting troublemaker, will present a public lecture at New College, updating the on-going Zapatista rebellion in Chiapas and its plans for Mexico's 2006 presidential election.

This June, the Zapatista Army of National Liberation issued the Sixth Declaration of the Lacandon Jungle ("La Sexta") calling for an alliance of all non-party struggle groups in Mexico to forge a new constitution that would abolish neo-liberal outrages. The Zapatistas' "La Otra Campana" ("The Other Campaign") will unfold parallel to the 2006 presidential election year.

$3 - 5 suggested donation; no one turned away for lack of funds.

Sponsored by New College Media Studies MA Program, Global Exchange, Media Alliance, and others.
