Pin #051: Viva Zapatistas

by Joe Biel

The Zapatistas are a group of indigenous Native Americans living in Chiapas, Mexico. They are constantly being terrorized and systematically wiped out by the Mexican gov't. They have retained a high sense of self worth and always refuse to give up their fight. They reject outside assistance and are self sustaining. They are a strong example of a healthy group resisting oppression.
