La realidad: La otra cara de un pueblo zapatista
I arrived in San Cristobal de las Casas in 1996, two years after the Zapatista Revolution.Using my own wits to elude checkpoints and government troops who would have turn me back I journeyed into the jungle towards the Zapatista town La Realidad.Expecting to find a masked army I instead found a town whose principal weapon was life and an endurance to move onwards within life that life. I realized that it was the cycle of day to day living that made the Zapatista’s struggle possible. No matter how strong the government tries to suppress the revolution. it was the strong sense of community that keeps the Revolution alive. These are extracts from that journey and from a handmade book I made at my return. Today the struggle continuos.
