JOHN GIBLER (Global Exchange / KPFA)
DIEGO OSORNO (Mileno)

Mexico-based journalist-activist John Gibler presents his new book, Mexico Unconquered: Chronicles of Power and Revolt (http://www.citylights.com/book/?GCOI=87286100093700), which explores the concept of the Rule of Law in a land known for its implacable corruption and impunity; the political machinations behind Mexico's devastating economic disparities; the implications and consequences of the annual exodus of half a million Mexicans to the United States; the unprecedented civil disobedience uprising in Oaxaca state; and the continuing Indigenous Present that resists the government's attempts to confine Mexico's 10 million indigenous peoples to calm and controlled corners of the past.
