Fighting for indigenous and land rights in Peru, discussion introduced by
HUGO BLANCO from Peru – author of We the Indians published by Resistance Books and Merlin Press
TERRY CONWAY, editor at Resistance Books
Described as the ‘Fidel Castro of the Andes’, like Fidel and Che, Hugo Blanco was a charismatic revolutionary during the 1960s. In 2018, still very active at the age of 83, he follows the path of the Mexican Zapatista’s substituting, to a large extent, an anarchist indigenous politics for his previous Leninism. For many years he has been centrally concerned with the ecological crisis and how we fight it.
