John Ross Dies at Age 72

19 Jan

Author of numerous acclaimed books about the history of political resistance, John Ross, died in Mexico. His recent work, Zapatistas! follows the ecological and economic struggles of indigenous peoples of Southern Mexico with humor and a verve for revolution. His work will live on after him, as struggles learn from the history and the way that he documented, and evolve to fit the current. Find obituaries in La Jornada here and Counterpunch here.
