with Chris Hedges

teleSUR English on Mar 8, 2016

In this episode of Days of Revolt, Chris Hedges sits down with two activists from Mexico, Pauline Luna and Jessica Alcazar. The two explain the effects of US-imposed neoliberalism on Mexico, particularly since the signing of 1994 trade agreement NAFTA. They highlight the abuse and “disappearance” of Mexican human rights advocates, activists, journalists, and laborers. Luna and Alcazar also lay out their project, “Concertación Ciudadana”, which demands a new constitution and uninhibited direct participation on a grassroots level.

  1. The term “NAFTA vortex” was mentioned. Interesting to see NAFTA, TPP and other trade deals in the news; might be the topic that swings the 2016 race. Bill signed NAFTA, Hill called TPP “gold standard”, then opposed TPP. But, what difference does it make?…

  2. Excellent, enlightening interview.
