The Demarest Factor: US Military Mapping of Indigenous Communities in Oaxaca, Mexico (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.

El Factor Demarest expone un programa de mapeo militar en la Sierra Sur de Oaxaca, por parte del ejército de Estados Unidos. El mapeo se llevó al cabo a través de un programa de la Universidad de Lawrence, Kansas junto con la Oficina de Servicio Militar Foráneo (FMSO) en el Fuerte Leavenworth, en Leavenworth, Kansas. El especialista en geografía militar de la FMSO, Teniente Coronel Geoffrey Demarest declara en varios textos y ensayos que la tenencia comunal de la tierra es causa principal de la criminalidad y la insurrección. En si, Demarest criminaliza el ser indígena.
