Yaquis, the story of a popular struggle and a Mexican genocide (II)

  • Whatsapp

On this episode, we will explore Mexico's longest armed struggle, a magnificent, though dreadful, fight that lasted almost 42 years (1867-1909). It is perhaps the longest war a Latin American indigenous community has waged, a war that ended with a hideous and planned genocide carried out in the last ten years of the conflict. Paco Taibo II goes to the Yaquis' territory to remember a history of resistance of this indigenous community. teleSUR
