Chicana activist joins EZLN movement
(PNS reporting from NEW JACK CITY) A local activist is excited about throwing her support behind a movement in Southern Mexico she recently read about on Facebook: the EZLN.
Pilar Morales (photo) said she saw a post on her friend Daisy’s Facebook wall about a new band called Rage Against the Machine which talked about the movement.
When the Spanish Harlem resident Googled it, she said she felt like she’d finally found a cause she could really support.
“I totally get this. They are just, like, fighting for their rights and the government is oppressing them!” Morales told PNS. “It’s just not fair.”
