Gustavo Esteva and Sergio Beltrán
"Oaxaca, the APPO and the Alternative Media"

The Popular Assembly of the Peoples of Oaxaca (APPO in Spanish) coalesced in response to police repression against a strike by the Oaxacan teachers’ union and occupied the city of Oaxaca from July to November 2006. Gustavo Esteva and Sergio Beltrán will discuss the conflict as well as the strategic use of the alternative media by this grassroots social movement and the Mexican government.

Gustavo Esteva is a Mexican political analyst and the founder of Universidad de la Tierra in Oaxaca, Mexico. Sergio Beltrán is a researcher at the Universidad de la Tierra and has worked extensively in alternative radio production. Both participated in last year’s debates of the Popular Assembly of the Peoples of Oaxaca.

Co-sponsored by the Townsend Center and the Department of Spanish and Portuguese.
