Mexicans who are putting their lives at risk by challenging corrupt 
power as they build social movements for basic rights, justice, and 
autonomy./
 -- Howard Zinn
 
John Gibler will be at Powell's Burnside on Friday night, February 6, 
reading from his important new book, Mexico Unconquered:  Chronicles of 
Power and Revolt.  Just released from City Lights, Mexico Unconquered 
draws on Gibler's years of work in Mexico as journalist and activist, 
and especially his reports from Oaxaca, Chiapas, and Guerrero, areas 
devastated by the impact of forced labor migration and violence related 
to drug trafficking, and simmering with social rebellion.
