This talk will focus on the impact of the Zapatista movement in Mexico
on People-of color self-determination movements above the so-called southern
US border. Why does their small "r" indigenous revolution challenge us
so deeply and give us reason to believe that our freedom dreams and
sense of dignity are the guides to cha nging the world?"
Ashanti Alston, Black Panther and long-time activist in Black
liberation movements, will report on recent developments in the
struggle for self determination and community autonomy currently
underway in both the African American and Latino communities. Drawing from
his own history in the black liberation movement in the United States,
Alston will examine the intersections and solidarity between these
communities as well as investigate the critical role of popular
strategies for the Black Panthers and more recently the Zapatista
communities of Chiapas, Mexico. More recently, as a member of Estacion
Libre, an autonomous organization of people of color in solidarity with
the Zapatistas, Alston has been a prominent activist in the decentralized,
networked global resistance to neoliberal structural adjustment as it
manifests in the prison industrial and military industrial complex.

Ashanti Al ston is a Black Panther and ex-political prisoner who has
served on the board of the Institute for Anarchist Studies and currently
publishes the zine, "Anarchist Panther". He has spoken widely on the
Panthers and the history of Black Nationalist movements, including as a
lecturer at the Institute for Social Ecology in Vermont. After studying
the autonomous struggle of Zapatista communities in Chiapas, he has
linked his knowledge of Black nationalism and indigenous autonomy to his
anti-racist work with such organizations as Critical Resistance, a
national organization committed to ending the Prison Industrial complex.
His academic interests include the Black Panther Party, History of the
Black Nationalist Movements, Black Anarchism and the Zapatista Rebellion.
