I read this article today,

I read this article today, July 20, 2016, and the commentary, because I was wondering what had become of the Zapatistas. I didn't know if the organization still existed. The article provided a historical account of the EZLN up to 2014 and I'm grateful to have this information. It is unfortunate that the EZLN did not reach out to help the people of Oaxaca. And aligning with a blatantly communistic group that proudly displayed the image of Stalin was anathema to most of the rest of the world especially the U.S. and me too. I believe in economic and political change, but not change in which some one assumes absolute power and rules by fear. There's more than enough of that in the world today. I hold in my heart all groups that are eager to create caring communities that ensures justice and resources for all. The Zapatistas seem to be that for the indigenous of Chiapas.
