Acteal Massacre; Military Pollution

Irvine -- On Alternative News today, a KUCI alternative news program, we feature two "Making Contact" programs, about the Acteal massacre in Mexico, and the other on the U.S. military's legacy of polluting the environment.

The show airs from 4-5 p.m. today on KUCI, 88.9 fm in Orange County. It is also Web-cast at

The show precedes Subversity, which airs at 5, and will today feature labor organizing in academia by the Wobblies.

Making Contact 
#47-00 "Day of the Dead: Remembering Acteal" 

In Southern Mexico in the state of Chiapas, paramilitary groups and the
Mexican military continue to terrorize members of
autonomous munipalities organized by the EZLN, or Zapatista Army of
National Liberation. On this program, we hear author John
Ross recount the story of the Acteal massacre.
