He was a distinguished military and farmer leader of the Mexican Revolution, which began in 1910, in the wake of the fight against the dictatorship of porphyry In this revolution, he was one of the great responsible for lift the flag "Tierra Y Libertad" and defending not only social justice, equality, democracy and collective property of the earth, but also respect for indigenous, peasants and workers in general . ---- Involved with the popular struggles since youth, when the revolutionary process broke out, he began to joint the armed combat of the dispossessed peasants of morelos and then became commander of the Southern Liberator Army. The program defended by him and his supporters "Zapatistas" was exposed in the plan de Ayala, launched at the end of 1911 and called for a radical agricultural reform and an institutional transformation for the benefit of poor and excluded, which should be conquered by Armed Revolution of a very social character.

The Zapatista Army, which in 1914 reached almost 30 members, fought enemies and traitors of the revolution, LED open and guerrilla clashes, expropriated and returned land to peasants and poor insurgents, supported by the notion that " the earth It's who works in it "; created and strengthened joints and institutions in different spheres of life. His influence was felt, not only in the Mexican, but also in the states of Mexico, Guerrero, Puebla and tlaxcala.

He was not an anarchist, but a popular leadership whose influences of anarchism - through the readings of Peter Kropotkin and the contact with anarchists such as Ricardo Flores Magón and António Diaz Soto y gama - felt strongly. He was murdered at his battle post in 1919, doing justice to the motto he claimed: " it is better to die standing than to live on your knees

On this date, we pay all our tribute and say that his fight remains alive in ours!

Yay Zapata!
