Speakers:

John Gibler, author of MEXICO UNCONQUERED: CHRONICLES OF POWER AND REVOLT, published this month by City Lights Books: http://www.citylights.com

Diego Osorno, author of 'Oaxaca Sitiada: La primera insurrección del siglo XXI' ('Besieged Oaxaca : La primera insurreccion del siglo XXI/ The First Insurrection Of the XXI Century', not yet available in English).

MEXICO UNCONQUERED draws on Gibler's many years of work in Mexico and especially his last three years of reporting directly from areas in central and northern Mexico that have been devastated by the impacts of forced labor migration and the violence related to drug trafficking, and his reporting on social rebellions in Oaxaca, Chiapas, and Guerrero.

"Through research, critical analysis, and superb first-hand reporting culled from years of living in Mexico, Gibler shares the voices, stories, and communal dignity of the ordinary Mexicans who are putting their lives at risk by challenging corrupt power as they build social movements for basic rights, justice, and autonomy. An exciting first book by an emerging young writer."
-- Howard Zinn

Diego Osorno's 'Oaxaca Sitiada' (Grijalbo Mondadori S.A.) chronicles the uprising in Oaxaca with Osorno taking us from the fighters in the streets to the political and military leaders in the halls of power.
