Chiapas, and the Meaning of Commitment

Rogelio Garcia Contreras

Since coming to the United States in 1996 to continue my graduate studies at the University of Denver, I have followed with interest and restlessness the development of a complex and well-known conflict in the southern Mexican state of Chiapas. Currently, a number of Mexican and foreign analysts share a controversial opinion: that the Zapatista movement is dead. The media has played a key role in the formulation of such a conclusion, despite efforts from certain sectors of Mexican society to promote the opposite idea: that, more than ever, the movement is alive.
