Overview

“The world has a new kind of hero, one who listens more than speaks, who preaches in riddles not in certainties, a leader who doesn’t show his face, who says his mask is really a mirror. And in the Zapatistas, we have not one dream of a revolution but a dreaming revolution.”—Naomi Klein

The most comprehensive collection of essays and communiqués by Subcomandante Marcos chronicles the written voice of the Zapatista movement and its struggle to open a space within the neoliberal, globalized landscape for the oppressed peoples of the world. Complete from their first public appearance in 1994 through their 10-year anniversary celebrations and period of restructuring in 2004.

“The Zapatista uprising in Chiapas was certainly one of the most dramatic and important instances in our time of a genuine grassroots movement against oppression. In this volume, the writings of Subcomandante Marcos give eloquent expression to this movement, revealing both its philo-sophical foundations and its tactical ingenuity. I believe his words and the statements of the Zapatistas can inspire a new generation of activists and let them understand that it is possible for ordinary people, without military power, without wealth, to challenge state power successfully on behalf of social justice. [This] fantastic collection of Marcos’ words conveys the spirit of the Zapatistas as no other book I know has done.”—Howard Zinn

“After over 500 years of conquest, the indigenous -people already know what the rest of us must learn about empires: that they exploit the many for the privileges of the few, that they ransack the cultures of antiquity, that they place a burden even on the mother countries. But in their actions and writings, the Zapatistas are inspiring a new generation to join the struggle for a better world. It’s our world too!”—Tom Hayden

    Tierra y Libertad

    ¡YA BASTA! is an almost complete anthology of Marcos' writings and EZLN communiques from 1994 through the anniversary this past year. It contains a lengthy historical introduction by Ziga Vodovnik, a Zapatista solidarity activist, and forewords by both Noam Chomksy and Naomi Klein heralding the Zapastista's struggle as one of the most important and influencial social and political struggles of the last hundred years. Anyway, they're trying to use the book to support the work of Zapatista solidarity groups, popularize Zapatismo, and raise awareness of their struggle. To this end proceeds from the book are going down to Zapatista communities.
