    06. Chiapas, 1996 – ¡Ya Basta!

    “Despite a failed uprising in 1994” I would not considered a FAIL when they accomplished over 90% of their objective or demands… in less than 100 days and with less than 90 casualties

    They got more hospitals, schools and roads build in the state of Chiapas in the five years after the uprising than in the previous 70 years, The Zapatistas troops parade once a month in front of the military barracks as a reminder to the government that they still there and that the government must keep their promises. (BTW The Zapatistas are fully armed while parading and the government forces do not even try to mess with them even that is against the law)

    It may be worth to point out that the Zapatistas have clear most of the Drug Cartels and Gangs from Chiapas. (Still some cartel operations remain on and off but with little power)

    So I will NOT characterized as a “Failed Uprising”
