BACKGROUND
Since the Zapatista uprising began on January 1, 1994, (the first day
that NAFTA went into effect) the Mexican military and paramilitaries
have waged a counter insurgency war against Zapatista and sympathizer
communities. Eleven years after the uprising, human rights abuses are
rampant.
But Mexico's indigenous communities are developing new forms of
resistance. Women are playing leading roles on all fronts in the
struggle to build alternatives. Fair Trade Cooperatives allow women
to play a central role in the control and development of local
economies.
