Mexico: Zapatistas in Mexico City. What next?

03/03/2001, Mounting excitement gripped Mexico in early March as the 15-day "Zapatour" by 23 Zapatista (EZLN) comandantes and subcomandante Marcos made its way from Chiapas towards Mexico City. The EZLN followed, in the last leg of their trip, the historic route taken by the legendary Emiliano Zapata and the revolutionary southern army in 1914 during the Mexican Revolution of 1911-1920. Robert Bechert witnessed the Zapatistas arrival.
