Zapatista spokesman Subcommander Marcos decreased his public appearances between 2007 and 2014, but simultaneously increased the depth of his analysis. Collected here in English translation for the first time, these talks include some of his most explicit, detailed, and inspiring criticisms of capitalism, political parties, electoral democracy, disingenuous solidarity, and much more.
Subcommander Marcos was the leading spokesperson for the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN) until 2014.
