Mexico and the United States have a closely intertwined history of 
domination and resistance. As rulers, both here and there, draw closer 
together with the "Security & Prosperity Partnership" 
(NAFTA-on-steroids) popular resistance is ever present. Three US-based 
activists will provide first-hand accounts of their (separate) visits to 
Oaxaca and Chiapas.

Corry Banton is a member of the Mexico Solidarity Network and spent time 
coordinating speaking tours and delegatations to Chiapas and Juarez with 
community members in resistance.  She supports autonomy and is a member 
of the Lucy Parsons Collective and the Boston Interpreters Collective 
which advocates for language equity within the Boston Public Schools.

Brian O'Connell is an anti-war activist who recently participated in a 
delegation trip to Chiapas with Equal Exchange, a fair trade coffee 
cooperative that he works for. Brian
helped start the Stop the Wars Coalition.

Pam Cataldo is an antiwar and immigrants rights activist. A native of 
Latin America, she recently visited Mexico.
