9781570271182: Conversations with Durito: Stories of Zapatistas and Neoliberalism

In 1994, from the Lacandon jungle, Zapatista Subcomandante Marcos replied to a ten-year-old girl in Mexico City who had sent him a drawing. In his response, Marcos conjured up a first fable introducing the beetle and knight-errant "Don Durito de la Lacandon."

The ensuing output of Durito-related communiques and tales comprise a broad discourse of the Zapatista struggle, revealing their organizational history, their critique of traditional politics, and the reasons for their opposition to neoliberalism. These elements have helped make the Zapatistas an exemplary reference in the international movement against capitalist globalization.

Conversations with Durito includes all the Durito stories issued to date, translated, annotated, and contextualized by the Accion Zapatista Editorial Collective, and illustrated by simpatico artists. Poetic, humorous, and imaginative, these fables provide an excellent introduction to the politics of globalization from the radical perspective of indigenous struggle.
