From its roots in Richie Valens's "La Bamba" riffs, garage rock, and the Ramones to hardcore and the cultural front of the anti-globalization movement, Latina/os have played a significant role in punk music, fashion, identity, and politics. In the 1970s and 1980s, in context of the transformative effects of neo-liberal economic globalization on the United States I Mexico borderlands, working class Latina/o youth from the barrios of Los Angeles to Tijuana's colonias were instrumental in shaping punk's subcultural identity. Though separated by national borders, Latina/o socio-economic conditions and experiences with the police state increasingly mirrored each other. By the 1990s, accessing Latina/o cultural sights and sounds as markers of punk's oppositional identity, these organic intellectuals fostered a transborder civic imagination and alternative critical space within punk that intersected with the radical politics of the indigenous Ejercito Zapatista de Liberación Nacional (E.Z.L.N.) inciting the anarchist inspired anti-globalization politics in punk culture.
