Who is Radio Insurgente?
RADIO INSURGENTE is the official voice of the National Zapatista
Liberation Army (EZLN). RADIO INSURGENTE is a radio station which is
completely independent from the bad Mexican government. It diffuses the
ideas and contents of the zapatista struggle on FM and shortwave radio, as
well as on this website and through its own CD-productions. It also
informs about the progress made in building the zapatista autonomy through
the Good Government Juntas and the Rebel Zapatista Autonomous

FM Radio

RADIO INSURGENTE is a FM project which transmits from various places in
Chiapas directed to the zapatista bases, the insurgentes and milicians,
the commanders and local people in general. This program is broadcast not
only in spanish, but also in the indigenous languages tzotzil, tzeltal,
chol and tojolabal. The program mixes local, national and international
news with music, educational and political messages, short stories and
radio-novels. RADIO INSURGENTE is the media through which the zapatista
communities spread their own music, words and thoughts.

RADIO INSURGENTE is the only independent radio station in Chiapas
transmitting in the various indigenous languages, and for this reason can
be understood by women, men and children. In Chiapas, due to the
catastrophic educational politics of the official mexican government,
approximately a third of the men and half of the women cannot read and
write. Most women do not speak or understand spanish.

The RADIO INSURGENTE signal reaches isolated regions that have no
electricity, where no newspaper goes and where entertainment mainly
consists of playing basketball or soccer. For these communities, Radio
Insurgente opens a window to the world, and brings information about the
struggles of other peoples in other countries. The dozens of letters which
reach the cabins every day demonstrate how important it's program is for
the indigenous people of Chiapas.

Shortwave Radio

Its weekly shortwave-program in spanish is particularly directed to the
people of Mexico and the Americas, but also to all interested persons from
civil society in Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania. It informs regularly on
actual events in Chiapas, on the progress of constructing zapatista
autonomy through the Juntas de Buen Gobierno and the autonomous rebel
municipalities, on the history of the National Zapatista Liberation Army,
indigenous women’s rights and many other subjects. It also entertains with
a variety of music and short stories from Chiapas.

On shortwave, Radio Insurgente transmits one hour per week on fridays from
3 p.m. (Mexico official time, GMT -6) on the frequency 6.0 MHz,


On the Radio Insurgente web page - http://www.radioinsurgente.org - you
can listen to or download the weekly shortwave RADIO INSURGENTE programs,
as well as some special programs and samples of the FM program. You also
can send an email to the Radio Insurgente team with your comments. The
audio archives are in mp3 format (mono), compressed to 64 kbps for
download and retransmission, and 32 kbps for listening.

The National Zapatista Liberation Army invites all free and community
radio stations to re-transmit Radio Insurgente’s program on their local
frequency. Retransmission is free as long as the content aren’t changed.


During the last three years, PRODUCCIONES RADIO INSURGENTE has been
developing a digital recording studio in the Rebel Zapatista Zone as part
of RADIO INSURGENTE. This is Where the musicians from resistance
communities can come to record their own music for free.

PRODUCCIONES RADIO INSURGENTE is the first project to enable indigenous
Zapatista musical groups the opportunity to record their own music. In
this way it helps to amplify and dissiminate the traditional music of the
communities and the "corridos" Zapatistas (insurgente's songs).

You can support PRODUCCIONES RADIO INSURGENTE by buying or distributing
the CD's, cassettes and music.

Zapatista strategies of organization and outreach provide an inspiring
example of radical social empowerment and movement building for grassroots
organizers, community leaders, and activists worldwide. The ¡Enough is
Enough! Project / Proyecto ¡Ya Basta! aims to spread the Zapatista
approach in North-American activist circles. Be active in the creation of
alternatives to a world where so many are exploited for the lifestyle of a
few. The future is unwritten… still!
