The Demarest Factor: US Military Mapping of indigenous communities in Oaxaca, Mexico (Documentary film 55 minutes)

Published: SEPTEMBER 14, 2011
[Image: factor-daemrestwww-291x225.jpg](55 minutes) 2010 This film is part of an ongoing investigation which has exposed US military mapping of communally owned indigenous land in the Southern Sierra in the state of Oaxaca, Mexico. The mapping took place under the auspices of the department of geography from Kansas University in Lawrence, Kansas in collaboration with the Foreign Military Studies Office (FMSO) at Fort Leavenworth, in Leavenworth, Kansas. The FMSO senior analyst Lieutenant Colonel Geoffrey B. Demarest declares in several essays and texts that communal ownership of property, leads to crime and insurgency. The film irrefutably exposes an ongoing military strategy to criminalize indigenous land tenure and identity in order to secure political and economic interests in the region.

What bull! The exact opposite is truly more likely.....the PRIVATE ownership of property [even more so, unequal private ownership] leads to crimes and insurgency.



Orwellian doublespeak!
Exactly.
