Description

The Zapatista Army emerged from the jungle on New Year's Day, 1994, and provoked a national crisis in Mexico.  At a demonstration in Mexico City, over one hundred thousand people marched together and shouted Frist World, HA HA HA!--a defiant declaration of solidarity with the rebels, an snsurgent army of indigenous campesinos who have challenged the direction of Mexico's future.

The Chiapas uprising was internationally hailed as a direct attack on the New World Order. It is a milestone in lthe continuing history of indigenous resistance in the Americas, and an important development in the growing worldwide struggle against global policies of economic colonization.
