The InterOceanic Corridor and the National-Popular Interest

The recycled mega-project of the Tehuantepec inter-oceanic corridor –whose origins lie in the regional development program of Ernesto Zedillo’s government, and whose distant origins lie in the damaging McLane-Ocampo Treaty (1859)– continues its slow but relentless advance, despite the opposition and resistance of multiple local, regional, national and international organizations and collectives that have exposed the serious damage that this monstrous project will cause to the environment, to the peoples who inhabit the disputed territories,  and to the whole socio-political-cultural fabric of the 33 municipalities of Veracruz, 46 of Oaxaca, 14 of Chiapas and five of Tabasco.

Mexico: Reflections on the Struggles of Zapatista Women. Feminists?

In this paper, Dr. Sylvia Marcos examines some key concepts of the struggles of Zapatista women and the challenges they present to global North geopolitical feminisms. “These struggles by Zapatista women focus simultaneously on their rights as women and on those they share in the defense of their land and territory.

A Sea of Dancing Light

“…we know that we are not alone in this journey. How many compañeros and compañeras have come to these lands of ours to share their knowledge, to teach us and for us to teach them, how many have dedicated their whole lives to sharing our thinking, to look for ways to support us in this struggle that is not only ours. Thanks to this support we can continue to build our schools and clinics, develop materials, and have access to medical equipment that allows us to treat our patients…Without this, despite all the vision we have, we could not have survived. It is beautiful that there are people who share this vision of equality in the world, and that is why with all the energy we have, we invite you to continue building together.”
