Pacifica staff member reporting from Chiapas.

An international gathering called by the Zapatistas wraps up today in Chiapas. Activists from around the world, including hundreds from the U.S. have traveled to the Mexican jungle to discuss the situation of indigenous people and to strategize how to fight neoliberal economic policies that concentrate wealth in the hands of a few and perpetuate and exacerbate poverty among the majority in the developing world.
