This original and historic CD, recorded in the mountains of Chiapas, Mexico, features the internationally renowned yet enduringly enigmatic Zapatista spokesperson, Subcomandante Marcos, reading selections from the English edition of his acclaimed book, Our Word is Our Weapon. In these dark times of occupation, oppression and authoritarian control, the voice of Subcomandante Marcos sounds an inspiring wake up call for principled resistance, democracy, movement building, and working across borders and languages to build "one world in which many worlds fit."
Subcomandante Insurgente Marcos is a spokesperson and strategist for the Zapatistas, an indigenous insurgency movement based in Mexico. He first joined the indigenous guerrilla group which was to become the Zapatistas in the early 1980s. Marcos is author of several books translated into English, including "Shadows of Tender Fury" which featured early letters and communiques, and a children's book "Story of the Colors", which won a Firecracker Alternative Book Award.
