Which Way for Latin America's Indians? - the Evo/Zapatista Divide

Introductory remarks by TIM REDMOND, Managing editor of the San Francisco Bay Guardian.

Friday, February 10th at 7 pm
New College Cultural Center, 766 Valencia Street, SF

Poet/correspondent/author/activist John Ross will speak on "Which Way for Latin America's Indians – the Evo/Zapatista Divide" at the New College Cultural Center, 766 Valencia Street on Friday February 10th.

Ross, who has been traveling with the Zapatistas in Mexico, will also report back on their "Other Campaign", an anti-electoral effort featuring Subcomandante Marcos that is shadowing Mexico's 2006 presidential elections.

John Ross, an independent muckraker, has been reporting from the underbelly of Latin America for the better part of four decades. His work appears regularly in the San Francisco Bay Guardian, Noticias Aliadas (Lima), the Texas Observer, Counterpunch (on line), and La Jornada in Mexico City. Ross is the author of three award-winning volumes on the Zapatista rebellion which he has covered since its early hours and is currently working on a fourth, "Making Another World Possible – Zapatista Chronicles 2000-2006" to be published by Nationbooks this fall.

In 2004, Ross spent several weeks in Bolivia interviewing that majority Indian nation's first indigenous president Evo Morales, and the February 10th talk takes its cue from Ross's recent Bay Guardian profile, "Evo Presidente!" Tim Redmond, managing editor of the San Francisco Bay Guardian and a long-time co-conspirator, will introduce Ross at the New College event.

"Which Way for Latin America's Indians?" is sponsored by the New College Media Studies Program, Global Exchange, Media Alliance, Chiapas Support Committee, AK Press. There is a $5 dollar donation at the door but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. The fireworks get underway at 7 PM.
