Many labour unions are either in the process of negotiating with their respective employers (mostly municipal, state, or federal governments) in Brazil, while others are actively on strike. These include federal workers from the government bureaucracy, school teachers, city staff, and university staff and faculty. In this piece, I would like to highlight how unions in the transportation sector are highly represented in these labour struggles.
Much media attention has been given to the recent passing of Subcomandante Insurgente Marcos, as is to be expected. However, it was largely and erroneously reported that he "stepped down as leader of the Zapatistas". Anyone with a basic knowledge of the Zapatista movement will know that he has never been its "leader" but rather a spokesperson for the EZLN (Zapatista National Liberation Army). What happened in La Realidad, Chiapas, on May 24th was much more profound and poetic, as is typical of the Zapatistas.
