The Zapatista Rebellion at Twenty Years: A Retrospective

Panel discussion on Wednesday, April 2, in the Ruth Rowland-Taylor Recital Hall [PAC 134]

 

The program begins at 7PM, with a reception following in the PAC hallway.

 

[On January 1, 1994, an indigenous Mayan rebellion began in the Mexican state of Chiapas.  The beginning of the rebellion coincided with the implementation of the North American Free Trade Agreement---an agreement inimical to the interests of indigenous peoples in Mexico.  The Zapatista rebellion signaled the attempt to create an autonomous region in Mexico for the indigenous Mayan majority.]

Panelists include:

Stephen Lewis, Ph.D., CSUC Professor of History

Maria del Rocio Guido, CSUC graduate/activist

 

A question and answer session follows the formal program.
