BUSTAMANTE BERMUDEZ, Gerardo. The vision of the Campesino Movement in Morelos through Elena Garro's Journalism. Valenciana [online]. 2020, vol.13, n.25, pp.141-165.  Epub June 15, 2020. ISSN 2007-2538.

In the present article some texts of the journalistic production of the Mexican writer Elena Garro in which she addresses the issue of the peasants in Morelos and their struggle to make visible an agrarian conflict and the collusion of the Government in office and the landowners are reviewed. Garro becomes the spokeswoman and activist who denounces through journalistic exercise and its discursive strategies the land dispossession; this contact with the peasant space and its cultural memory serves the author as literary material in subsequent fiction texts. The narrator uses journalism and her personal experience to construct her own version of the peasant conflict in the early fifties of the last century as a contribution in which she recorded a local issue that had resonances at the national level, especially after of the assassination of the peasant leader Rubén Jaramillo in 1962.
