Zapatismo in the Movement of Movements

Peter Rosset, Maria Elena Martinez-Torres and Luis Hernandez-Navarro

ABSTRACT Peter Rosset, Maria Elena Martinez-Torres and Luis
Hernandez-Navarro argue that the Zapatista uprising in Chiapas
proved to be a key turning point and re-awakening for the global
Left, or perhaps more accurately, the figurative birth of the
movement that replaced the ‘old Left.’ The Zapatistas gave the new
movements new forms and more inclusive methods and ideologies of
struggle. These were the forms, methods and ideologies with roots in
the history of subaltern indigenous communities deep in the
Lacandon jungle of Southeastern Mexico.
