Miguel Pickard White is an economist and one of the founders and collective members of CIEPAC which, in English is translated to mean The Center for the Economic and Political Investigation for Community Action. It is based in San Cristobal in the Mexican State of Chiapas. It is an activist research organization/think tank whose goal is to get their information and research that is not covered in the corporate media in Mexico out to people.

In this interview White focuses on two issues especially-- 1) the Zapatista movement in Chiapas which has created an independent, democratic and egalitarian society with its own structure in certain areas that are populated especially by the indigenous people of Chiapas. Even though the military is present in many areas of Chiapas it has not stopped the Zapatistas from developing such things as food coops, their own justice and court system, etc.. The people themselves are involved at every level of decision making. Other areas of Mexico are duplicating the revolution and ideas of the Zapistas in Chiapas but having an even more difficult time as they don't have such high visibility in and support from the international community which has made a big difference for the Zapatistas.

White also talks about 2) Plan Puebla Panama -- the plan to "develop" a long corridor from Puebla, Mexico to Panama for corporations with the funding of the World Bank and IMF. This "development" has dire consequences for the people and the environment and people are fighting it.
