Spinning in his grave

12 April 2010

The 91st anniversary of Emiliano Zapata’s assassination (post below this one) on the 10th was the occasion for dueling interpretations of the meaning of it all.  For Felipe Calderón,reflections on the life and death of Zapata call to mind the need for pension reforms and major changes in the energy laws.  I don’t get it either.

For Marcelio Ebrard, it means there’s still a long way to go to bring justice to the indigenous and campesinos in the country.

    Pick up Sam Brunk’s great book, “The Posthumous Career of Emiliano Zapata.” You’ll love it.
