Zapatista Textbook Now Available in English

Put on your thinking caps because the first of four Zapatista textbooks from last year’s widely popular escuelita (little school) have been translated to English.

For those who are not yet familiar, the Zapatista Escuelita (Zapatista little school), brought 1630 students from around the world to learn what it really means to be Zapatista. Contrary to what some might believe, there’s a lot more to the Zapatista than “smashing the state” or looking good doing it!

John Ahni Schertow writes about the first English translation of the Zapatista textbooks in Intercontinental Cry, where you can download the textbook and see the dates for the upcoming translations.

You can read more about the ‘escuelita’ in Upside Down World.
