Interview with Subcomandante Marcos

Subcomandante Marcos

In this candid interview with a witty and amiable Subcomandante Marcos in La Realidad in early 1994, a lot of territory is covered. The Zapatistas had exploded onto the global scene and people were flocking from all over the world to participate and learn about this exciting new political movement. Marcos always has the ability to express his ideas with a poetic sensibility – “In the midst of navigating from pain to hope, the political struggle finds itself bereft of the worn out clothes bequeathed to it by pain; it is hope which obliges it to seek new forms of struggle, new ways of being political, of doing politics. A new politics, a new political ethic is not just a wish, it is the only way to advance, to jump to the other side”.
