Guerrilla & the Hope: Lucio Cabanas
Teacher-turned-guerrilla leader Lucio Cabanas was beloved by the poor of South Mexico, scorned by his government, and clandestinely watched by U.S. covert agencies. In a 7-year campaign of robberies, kidnappings, and shootouts, Cabanas, acquired a mystique reminiscent of Emiliano Zapata and Pancho Villa. Ruthlessly gunned down in 1974 by the Mexican army, Cabanas is remembered fondly. THE GUERRILLA & THE HOPE celebrates the life of Cabanas. Testimonies from former guerrilla fighters, companions, relatives, and historians tell his story and explain why there have been so many armed social uprisings in Mexico in the last century.
