Transcript of Zapatista Movement
Large landowners in Mexico started taking land from the poor indian farmers. So the indians led a revolt on Mexico's dictator Poriro Diaz. The indians also fought for their stolen land. After they fought their land was given back to them. The goverment admitted that the Chiapas (poor indian farmers) needed more land and money.

their land back
The Zapatistas are named after Zapata Emiliano
Later in 1994 3,000 armed Zapatista soldiers freed prisoners from a jail.
