Marcos back in Mexico City; Zapatistas rally at Atenco

Subcommander Marcos and other delegates from the Zapatista National Liberation Army (EZLN) returned to Mexico City from Chiapas Sept. 29 to continue their national tour. In October and November they are scheduled to meet with suporters in the states of Nayarit, Sinaloa, Baja California, Baja California Sur, Chihuahua, Sonora, Zacatecas, Nuevo Leon, San Luis Potosi and Tamaulipas. (El Universal, Oct. 2) Immediately upon their return to the Mexico City area, they held a rally in the conflicted village of San Salvador Atenco with supporters of the Frente de Pueblos en Defensa de la Tierra to demand the release of the group’s members being held as “political prisoners.” (Milenio, Oct. 1)
