Slogans was: Ya basta ! ( “Enough is enough ! “). The Zapatistas from the beginning, injustice and humiliation of five hundred years against the outputs and the autonomy of requests , neo -liberalism and NAFTA part and symbol that against imperialism worldwide current struggle ties say that .

We have to keep in mind the following Chiapas, Mexico’s poorest regions and is probably the overwhelming majority of the population “native “, that is composed of people . The first Catholic bishop of Chiapas lives of indigenous peoples to defend their right to equal treatment one dedicated 16 century Dominican friar , was Bartolomé de Las Casas . 1994 Las Casas ‘s time to see what the locals were given this right .

Walking was enormous , but still stayed council against it . In 2005, the Zapatista’s ” Other Campaign ” launched . Objectives in other states with less near -bearing group aims to launch an alliance between Zapatistas these efforts , although still a tremendous did not change the current policy of the Mexican government .
