From striking Oaxacan teachers and angry protesters for the disappeared Ayotzinapa 43, to the resistance of imprisoned Indigenous leader Nestora Salgado, Mexico today is a land in revolt. But how to translate rebellion into insurrection for lasting change? Bolshevik leader Leon Trotsky was an architect of the Russian Revolution along with Lenin. He drew from his experiences to develop principles for building socialist movements, ideas that still resonate. Discuss how his concepts are relevant to contemporary uprisings south of the border.

Speaker: Moisés Montoya — The son of Mexican immigrants from California’s Central Valley and a longtime public employee at the City of Oakland, Montoya is a Trotskyist educator who has organized in his union for rank and file democracy and fair hiring, in the AIDS movement group ACT-UP, and during Occupy Wall Street as a revolutionary feminist, gay Chicano.
