In a time of acute political crisis, widespread state repression of social movements, and increasing environmental devastation, the Zapatistas have re-emerged as a force for change, this time unarmed, coming down from the mountains and out of the jungle to meet with Mexicans across all sectors and people from all over the world to organize a new social force for anticapitalist struggle.
