3rd Anniversary of Atenco's Machete Rebellion

3rd Anniversary of Atenco's Machete Rebellion

August 1, 2005
Please Distribute Widely

Today, August 1, marks three years since the people of Atenco and the Texcoco region near Mexico City won one of the 21st century’s first victories against neoliberal power – the prevention of the construction of a new international airport on their historic farmland. Narco News commemorates this historic day with the republishing of our 2002 report, an extensive article in two parts by journalist Maria Botey Pascual.

We also present, for the first time online, a documentary by Greg Berger and Gringoyo Productions: Tierra Si! Aviones No! (Land Yes! Planes No!). Berger and his team were on the ground with the people of Atenco throughout much of their struggle, and the images of those months are vividly recounted in this film.
