The Ecology of the Zapatista Revolt

James D. Nations

In the Ecology of the Zapatista Revolt, James D. Nations writes in Cultural Survival Quarterly about land and the Zapatistas from an ecological perspective. He argues that satisfying the needs of the indigenous and increasing the amount of land under cultivation will be possible only by taking land from the cattlemen to the west or from the forests of the Lacandon indigenous group who were presented with large swathes of jungle as a gift from the government in previous decades in exchange for logging concessions.
