Never a Mexico Without Us! The Zapatista Movement

Other Free

The Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN) burst onto the world stage on January 1st, 1994 when they led an armed uprising in the Mexican state of Chiapas. This was timed to coincide with the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) going into effect.

The EZLN has existed since 1983, with its most well-known member being its spokesperson, Subcommandante Marcos.

The politics of the EZLN are a synthesis of Mayan traditions along with anarchism, libertarian socialism, and Marxism. Their politics are best understood as being from the “bottom-up” rather than from the “top-down.”

Join us to learn more about this fascinating group, it’s history, and what is going on with it currently.
