Rebel Worker Movie: Zapatista
April 25, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Whatcom/Skagit IWW presents the monthly Rebel Worker Movie on the fourth Wednesday of each month.
Zapatista (1999): April 25th, 2018
Jan. 1 1994: The Day the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) went in effect. A few minutes after midnight in Southeastern Mexico, several thousand Indian soldiers take over half the state of Chiapas, declaring a war against global corporate power and for humanity. They call themselves the Zapatista National Liberation Army (EZLN).
Zapatista is the definitive look at the uprising in Chiapas. it is the story of the Mayan peasant uprising, armed with sticks and their word against a first world military. It is the story of a global movement that has fought 175,000 federal troops to a standstill and transformed Mexican culture and international political cultural forever.
