MEXICO-ZAPATISTAS-MARCOS

Earlier this month, we revisited the history of the Zapatista rebellion. Twenty years ago this month in the state of Chiapas, Mexico the Zapatista Army of National Liberation started a rebellion in response to the implementation of the North American Free Trade Agreement. They called it a death sentence for Mexico’s indigenous peoples. Now, we hear about how the movement has changed and how the Zapatista community is teaching others about their path to autonomy.
