New York City wide premiere of all-new interview with Subcomandante Marcos!
The Zapatistas have launched ‘The Other Campaign’ and are organizing with women, indigenous peoples, workers, gay, lesbian and transgender people, the elderly, youth and the poor to build a new non-electoral national grassroots movement ‘FROM BELOW AND FOR BELOW’ against neoliberalism and for humanity. Thousands of Mexicans have joined the Other Campaign including immigrants living in the U.S.
Movement for Justice in El Barrio is a grassroots organization of Mexican immigrants fighting against gentrification in El Barrio and is part of the The Other Campaign. In November, a delegation from Movement for Justice in El Barrio screened a video message from Mexican immigrants in NYC to the Zapatistas for Subcomandant Marcos. He responded in this interview with a message for Mexican immigrants and the Other Campaign in New York!
