Makes me want to ride on horseback to my local Town Hall and deliver an edict to the local coyuncil demanding justice for the People's Republic of Hackney or face the consequences he he!
I love those Zapatistas and thier spirit - they remind me of Spartacus, that each Zapatista is brother and sister, each behind a mask in a solidarity...the spirit of Emilio Zapata (who I also greatly admire)

They are too far to the left for most Mexicans who traditionally are somewhere in the middle between Socialism and Capitalism. . Mexicans have sympathy for the Zapatistas, and support some of their causes, especially those dealing with the land and the natives, but that's about it, not much more than that. If it was Mexico in a different era and with different personages, well, a different revolution it would be, but the Zapatistas are going nowhere fast, and that's one of the main realities why they had to call it a truce with the government. They couldn't advance by feat of arms, so they were allowed to go on the political road 'cause most understood that >> that was as far as they were gonna get with their message. The tren in Mexico is one in comformity with capitalism and modernizing its economic/industrial base. Sad to say, but, the agricultural rural Mexico of the past >> is but a memory for millions nowadays. The land no longer is the stable sustain of the masses, because today, manufacturing and exports are what define modern Mexico, so in a way>> the old revolution of the early 1900's acomplished what it set out to do originally in terms of political freedoms and technological advancement, but it failed in maintaining the land reforms for the peasentry. The two just could not be mixed together with the changing times. Not even the great China could maintain its rural revolution, and now, China, just like Mexico, are both on the same road to modern economics and global politics.

Why is slavery of blacks a big and touchy subject?
Black people make it seem like such a big deal. It's been nearly 370 years. How long does it take to get your act together?
I know these words can seem pretty rough and of course I'm gonna get negative responses and usually ones with insults but oh well...
