Matias Viotti interviews Enrique Reynoso housing rights activist in Mexico, on the radio programme ‘Entre Mates’ (published and edited by Colectivo Burbuja) .
Enrique of the Popular Organisation of the Independent Left “Francisco Villa” will speak on this mass social movement which occupies land, builds social housing for the poorest people and promotes and organises self-managed grass-roots autonomy.
Enrique has spent more than 25 years organising for housing rights and autonomous communities in Mexico City.The “Organización Popular Francisco Villa de Izquierda Independiente” is independent of political parties and affiliated to the Zapatista-inspired La Sexta. As such, this event provides a rare opportunity to discover how the principles of Zapatismo are being translated in one of the largest urban conurbations in the world.
