Radio Autonomía January 2014/ Enero 2014: Los 30 y 20 años del Zapatismo

Posted in SHOWS with tags , , , , , , , , on January 6, 2014 by radioautonomia

Feliz año nuevo a todos y todas! En general, hacemos nuestro programa en inglés, pero para el primer mes del año nuevo, estamos haciendo un programa especial en español.

Hace pocos días, se celebraron los 20 años del levantamiento zapatista que sacudió a México y el mundo el primero de enero de 1994, con su grito rebelde de YA BASTA. Miles de compañeros y compañeras viajaron a Chiapas para participar en el segundo ciclo de la Escuelita Zapatista y acompañar a las comunidades autónomas en el festejo de este gran aniversario. Hoy en el programa también estaremos celebrando los 30 y 20 del Zapatismo, con una serie de segmentos relacionados al movimiento.

Empezaremos con las palabras de la compañera Gloria Muñoz Ramírez, de su columna Los de Abajo publicada el 4 de enero en La Jornada. Después continuaremos con una entrevista inédita con el Subcomandante Marcos, realizada en la Chiapas en marzo del ‘94, pero que no se difundió hasta esta semana, cuando los y las compas de Desinformémonos la publicaron en su página web. Después escucharemos una serie de entrevistas realizadas por DJ Pulga de Radio Autonomía, con varios colectivos en México que están luchando con rebeldía y dignidad en proyectos autónomos barriales, culturales, y militantes. Con estas entrevistas queremos reconocer el gran impacto que ha tenido el Zapatismo en México, donde los y las de abajo siguen luchando por la humanidad y contra el capitalismo, desde sus propias realidades y necesidades.

Radio Autonomía: SEPTEMBER 2013 SHOW (La Escuelita Zapatista)

Posted in SHOWS with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 1, 2013 by radioautonomia

AUDIO is from the September 1, 2013 broadcast of Radio Autonomía: Zapatismo in the Bay on Berkeley Liberation Radio, 104.1FM, livestream at Berkeley Liberation Radio

The September 2013 show features an in-depth conversation about the Escuelita Zapatista with a few of our close comrades here in the Bay Area who recently returned from Chiapas.

Following the celebration of the tenth anniversary of the Caracoles Zapatistas, from August 12-16th, one thousand seven hundred people arrived in Zapatista territory to participate in the first round of the Escuelita Zapatista, “The Little School on Freedom According to the Zapatistas.” Journalist Rául Zibechi, who participated in the Escuelita, wrote the following about the experience:

“There will be a before and after the Little Zapatista School; of the recent one and those that will come. It will be a slow, diffuse impact, which will be felt in some years but will frame the life of those below for decades. What we experienced was a non-institutional education, where the community is the educational subject. Face-to-face self-education; learning with the spirit and with the body, as the poet would say.”

Our compañero Gustavo Esteva, from the Universidad de la Tierra Oaxaca, wrote the following:

“We drank from the fountain of inspiration until we were sated. We also learned that everyone an do what they need to do in their own way, with as much diversity as we find in all of our worlds. We can create a world where we all fit. Inertia, paralysis and fears will be shaken. We are on our way.”

In this conversation, which we recorded here in Oakland, our compañeros and compañeras from the Universidad de la Tierra Califas share some of their experiences at the Escuelita, and reflect on the significance of this experience for their struggles here in the Bay Area…

Radio Autonomía: Zapatismo in the Bay April 2013 SHOW

Posted in INTERVIEWS, SHOWS, SPECIAL REPORTS with tags , , , , , , on April 14, 2013 by radioautonomia

AUDIOS are from the April 7, 2013 broadcast of Radio Autonomía: RadioZapatismo in the Bay on Berkeley Liberation Radio, 104.1FM, livestream at Berkeley Liberation Radio

We want to frame April’s show by referencing John Hollaway’s recent book “crack capitalism”. In this book he states in order to break the current system of capitalism we have to “break it in as many ways as we can and try to expand and multiply the cracks and promote their confluence ( or merging)”. He then goes further to describe cracks as  “the perfectly ordinary creation of a space or moment in which we assert a different type of doing.”  We hope to archive and share the resonances of people, movements and spaces that are imagining a different type of doing, a doing that rejects the behaviors and systems that capitalism produces.

In order to understand a bit more of what cracks are and what revolution and autonomous struggles look like today we will start off with an Interview with John Hollaway. We were able to meet up with him During his recent visit to San Francisco, where he presented a three part lecture series titled “After Capitalism.”

In documenting and sharing current “cracks” we look to the Zapatistas and read a brief synopsis of the new parts to their communique entitled “ellos y nosotros” or “them and us.” We will then hear audio from Gloria Munoz and Laura Carlson’s current speaking tour “Chaos and Grassroots Mobilizations in Mexico.”

For the 2nd part of our show we focus on how communities and individuals are producing and converging cracks within the United States. We will start with a live phone interview with the Coalition of Immokalee workers and the Student Farmworker Alliance about their recent 200 mile march for Rights, Respect and Fair Food. We then will hear from a critical poet, hip hop and spoken word artist; Boca Floja. We were able to attend a spoken word event at the Hold-Out in which Boca Floja shares some of his recent poems and reflects on their anti-colonial  and anti-capitalist implications.

Finally, we have  audio of John Holloway’s “After Capitalism” lecture series hosted by the Anthropology and Social Change Department at the California Institute for Integral Studies in San Francisco March 26-28. Below please find the audio for the three lectures.

“Urban Zapatismo” & “After Capitalism”: Upcoming Events with John Holloway in San Francisco (March 26-28)

Posted in ANNOUNCEMENTS with tags , , , , , on March 21, 2013 by radioautonomia


John Holloway (author of Crack Capitalism and Change the World Without Taking Power) will be in San Francisco March 26-28 for a series of lectures  “After Capitalism” at the California Institute for Integral Studies (CIIS).

The lectures will be Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, March 26-28, 7.00-9.00 p.m. Namaste Hall at CIIS  <>

Arrangements have also been with comrade Holloway for a conversation about Urban Zapatismo  on Thursday 3/28, 2.00-4.00 p.m. room 560, at the CIIS.
We hope that this additional space will be an opportunity for our Bay Area Zapatista solidarity community to converge and compare notes about our efforts at solidarity work and, at times, our successes in going beyond solidarity. Given the recent mobilizations by the Zapatistas, we imagine a spirited discussion about the challenges of urban Zapatismo.
Please join us!
