Zapatistas Ride

A few years ago I was riding a rickety chicken bus into the Chiapas Highlands, Mexico on my way to San Cristóbal de las Casas for Dios De Muertos. Our bus was held up by Bandidos. I learnt that San Cristóbal was the headquarters for Marcos and the Freedom Fighters, and that they were known to take foreigners hostage to help receive media coverage in their plight against oppression. I sneakily took this photo through the window. And this is where my love and interest in the Zapatista movement began.
