A Zapatista Celebration / by Maria Hinojosa | January 31, 2014

A Zapatista Celebration
 

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.
