Reclaiming and Restoring
New Mexico
from Sacrifice Zone
to the Land of Enchantment
Chris Hedges
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and activist,
graduate Harvard Divinity School,
ordained Presbyterian minister,
former professor at Princeton University,
author of 11 books, including New York Times best-seller Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt (2012). 

There are corners of this country (like New Mexico) where Americans are trapped in endless cycles of poverty, powerlessness, and despair
as a direct result of capitalistic greed.

 Journalist Chris Hedges calls these places “Sacrifice Zones.”
“These are areas that have been destroyed for quarterly profit. We’re talking
about environmentally destroyed, communities destroyed,
human beings destroyed, families destroyed.”
