Day's book, Land and Freedom: The Origins of Zapatismo, is
well underway. Chris has completed eleven chapters of a projected
twenty-five chapter book. The chapters include a personal account
of traveling into the Lacandonm Jungle in an attempt to set the
larger scene, the pre-colonial and colonial history of Chipas, and
the actual history of the development of the EZLN from its
inception in 1983 up to the days immediately prior to the 1994
uprising. Chapters in the works include post-colonial history, the
political currents that converged to create Zapatismo, and the
development of the EZLN since the uprising. He was awarded $2000
in January 1998.
Doyle's three act play, Orange Fire, about Irish Anarchist
Jack White, is in the drafting stage with all but the last two
scenes written. He was able to interview various family members,
including White's son and niece. Research continues to inform the
writing of the play. The circumstance surrounding Jack White's
incarceration at Pentoville Prison in England in 1916, due to
agitating among the miners, is present in Act 1. He was awarded
$1000 in June 2000.
