Gustavo Esteva "is an independent writer and grassroots activist. He works both independently and in conjunction with a variety of Mexican and international NGOs, grassroots organizations and communities. He has been a key figure in founding several Mexican, Latin American and international NGOs and networks. He prefers to call such groups “hammocks” rather than networks or coalitions, because they seek to accommodate themselves to the shape of their members’ initiatives rather than imposing requirements for collaboration. He is currently involved in the movement associated with the Popular Assembly of the Peoples of Oaxaca."
