He was an Indian farmer and a hero of the 1910Mexican Revolution.
This was the first Internet
Revolution (1994). Their cause was
posted on the Internet and
gained world-wide support.
The Chiapas were upset because the government had made changes in the land ownership laws. The constitution used to grant land to people, no matter how poor they were. Now this right has been taken away.
Poor Mexican farmers did NOT like NAFTA because cheap corn and other food products from the U.S. began to flood into Mexico… forcing down the amount they could charge for their crops.
The Zapatistas got basic things like housing, education, fair division of land, and laws insuring that Native Americans were represented in legislature.
Large landowners continue to be of Spanish descent or mestizos.
