Maoism in Mexico. The case of the Revolutionary Party of the Mexican Proletariat, 1969-1970
- Uriel Velazquez Vidal
ANDIn this article I will focus on the Revolutionary Party of the Mexican Proletariat (PRPM), which developed in the Federal District and in the states of Morelos and Guerrero, between the years 1969-1970. Through interviews with PRPM militants and in addition to consulting documents from the General Archive of the Nation (AGN), it was how I was able to reconstruct this little-known stage in the contemporary history of Mexico. I have proposed four objectives: To present the founding process of the PRPM; discuss the structure of this party; expose the disarticulation of this group; and show the influence that this Maoist organism had on the popular urban movement, specifically in the founding of the "Colonia Proletaria Rubén Jaramillo", in the state of Morelos.
