Podcast – The Zapatista Uprising: The Best Post-Modern Revolution
The Zapatista uprising happened over 20 years ago, on January 1, 1994. On that day, indigenous peoples poured onto the streets of cities like San Cristobal De Las Casas. They were armed, they were poor, they spoke for all the oppressed people. Their strong leadership and planning led to one of the most storied and respected revolutions of post-modern times.
How did this revolution that took place in the southern state of Mexico, called Chiapas unfold? And what has changed since then?
Hilary Klein, author of Compañeras: Zapatista Women’s Stories, talks about the Zapatista movement and how it inspired grass-roots support from all over the world, galvanized behind a message that we can all champion.
