>Zapatistas in Oventik


Yesterday I sat in a room with 6 people, all wearing black ski masks.  I was intimidated at first, but found out quickly how lovely these indigenous people are. We asked questions to learn more about the Zapatista communities that are sprinkled around San Cristobal de las Casas and the world.  We were allowed 30 minutes of talking time in their office before they thanked us for coming.

We were allowed to walk around the head quarters and check out all the murals.  Fascinating!!!
