Narconews: Subcomandante Marcos Goes to Jail

Subcomandante Marcos Goes to Jail

February 20, 2006
Please Distribute Widely

The latest newsreel is out from the Other Journalism with the Other Campaign video team. This time, the cameras follow Zapatista Subcomandante Marcos inside the Tehuantepec, Oaxaca jail to visit with political prisoners from the nearby town of San Blas. The purpose of Marcos' visit was to meet with men arrested in the wake of the uprising last year in that indigenous Mexican town, where local residents rebelled after six years of rule under a corrupt local political boss. The cameras of Narco News and the Other Journalism were among the few that the subcomandante invited to accompany him inside.

Watch the newsreel, "Subcomandante Marcos Goes to Jail," here in the Salón Chingón Screening Room:
