“Indigenous Resistance in the Americas” speaking tour comes through MI

Chiapas based Poet and historian John Ross will speak in Traverse City on October 12 and Grand Rapids on October 13. Ross is currently touring the U.S. with his new book, Murdered by Capitalism: A Memoir of 150 Years of Life and Death on the American Left (Nation Books, 2004). Ross has written extensively on Latin America for Noticias Aliadas (Lima, Peru), Texas Observer, San Francisco Bay Guardian among others, and has been in direct action in both Iraq and in Palestine. This latest book is a “unique fusion of personal memoir and lively history ... a fandango where Che Guevara, William Burroughs, Billie Holiday, and Subcomandante Marcos might feel right at home.”
