BBC Mexico Zapatistas: Free Trade and Rebellion

DECEMBER 1st, 11 a.m. UPDATES:

correction the essay would be about (BBC Mexico Zapatistas: Free Trade and Rebellion.)

Answer the following questions in an essay format. Who are the zapatistas and where is their land located? What are they rebelling against? What is their idea of how the land should be managed? In what ways do they feel they are threatened by NAFTA? How do their maize fields look different from our corn fields here in Minnesota? Which of the two is the more productive landscape as far as corn harvest? Which seems more biologically diverse? What did the government of Mexico do in response to zapatistas’ demands? Who were some of the victims of this conflict?

Use Google Earth to find some landscape views of the countryside around Tuxtla, the capital of Chiapas state. Comment specifically on how such landscape is similar to any rural landscape you are familiar with? How is it different? (You can use Minnesota as the comparative point, if you’d like, or make sure to explain what other part of the world you are comparing Mexico to) What is apparently grown in the landscape (if anything)? What do people do? Is there any evidence of communal agriculture or does it seem like a landscape dominated by a few wealthy landowners? Is there evidence for mechanized agriculture or is it mainly cultivation by hand with minimal tools? Use at least two specific landscape photos to answer these question from two different locations. Insert these photos into your essay.

4) Overall, what concept covered in our course does the Zapatistas conflict illustrate? Can this conflict be resolved, in your opinion, and if so, how?
