Marcos: Word & History
Wednesday, August 24th, 7pm
at the Lucy Parsons Center
549 Columbus Ave (in the South End)

Made in 1996, this is 90 minutes worth of interviews with Subcommandante Marcos of the EZLN - all in Spanish, with English subtitles. The content ranges from the events leading up to the January 1st 1994 insurrection, and those following it, to his views on the Left (including anarchism) and the type of world they are fighting for.

From Abraham Guillen Press

About the Zapatistas:

The Zapatista Army of National Liberation (Ejército Zapatista de Liberación Nacional, EZLN) is an armed revolutionary group based in Chiapas, one of the poorest states of Mexico. Their social base is mostly indigenous but they have supporters in urban areas as well - their most visible leader by far is Subcomandante Marcos.

After they went public in 1994 with the initial goal of overthrowing the Mexican government, some considered the Zapatista movement the first post-modern revolution, by defining both their rights and the kind of government they should have. It also incorporated modern technologies like satellite telephony and the Internet as a way to obtain domestic and foreign support and couple them with traditional guerrilla tactics.

Subcomandante Insurgente Marcos describes himself as the spokesperson for the EZLN but, since he is so prominent a figure, he is considered by many to be one of its main leaders.

Upcoming Films:

August 31st - "Durruti" from Pacific Street Films
September 14th - "22/8: the Jeffrey Luers Story"
September 28th - "Immokalee: a story of slavery and freedom"

rest of the schedule is tba.

Please Don't Feed the Trolls

Wikipedia defines an Internet Troll as: "An Internet troll is either a person who sends messages on the Internet hoping to entice other users into angry or fruitless responses, or a message sent by such a person." Boston IMC strives to provide both a grassroots media resource as well as a forum for people to contribute to a meaningful discussion about local issues. Please, when posting comments, be respectful of others and ignore those trying to interrupt or discourage meaningful discourse. Thank you.
