(en) US, NYC, Ricardo Flores Magon and Indigenous Magonismo Today" - Reading at Bluestockings, March 9, 7 PM]

Throughout Mexico, journalist and political activist Ricardo Flores Magon
(1874-1922) is widely recognized as the foremost intellectual precursor of
the Mexican revolution of 1910-1917, whose radical prose inspired Emiliano
Zapata and others. Exiled to the United States, he continued his struggle
for social, economic, and racial justice in the U.S. and Mexico. Many important
figures in the U.S. left, such as Jack London, the IWW, Emma Goldman, Eugene V.
Debs, and Samuel Gompers supported Flores Magon's efforts. Nevertheless, a
combination of anti-immigrant prejudice and anti-radical hysteria brought him
to Leavenworth prison in 1918, where he died 4 years later.

Flores Magon's example of idealistic political engagement continues to
inspire radical indigenous rights groups in Mexico such as CIPO-RFM
(http://www.nodo50.org/cipo/) and COMPA (http://espora.org/amz/).

Mitchell Verter, author and editor of "Dreams of Freedom: A Ricardo
Flores Magon Reader"
(http://akpress.com/2004/items/dreamsoffreedommagonreader) and
"Barbarous Oaxaca" (http://www.counterpunch.org/verter05142005.html),
will discuss Flores Magon's life and works, as well as current
struggles against neoliberalism among Magon-influenced indigenous
rights groups in Oaxaca, Mexico.
