KPFA interview of Cockcroft on Mexico

Cockcroft describes Mexico’s grand revolutionary tradition, a radical lineage that lives on in current-day struggles both within Mexico and among US-based immigrants. He discusses the radical visions of the Magonista, Zapatista, and other revolutionaries of 1900-1920; the ideological roots of waves of resistance to Mexican and US elites since then; the elections-related turmoil that has periodically plagued Mexico; and the U.S.-sponsored “narco wars” and propaganda about "failed states" to justify militarization of Mexico and other nations.
