The Zapatista army

Zapatismo is used by historians to refer to the armed movement identified with the ideas of Emiliano Zapata, leader of the Mexican Revolution, reflected mainly in the Plan de Ayala term 1911. The members of the Southern Liberation Army led by Zapata were known as " Zapatistas. "

One of the most symbolic phrases of Zapatismo was that the land belongs to the tiller, reflecting a kind of privatism, originally coined by Zapata himself while trying to remove the chieftaincy in Mexico and restore possession of the land to the peasant classes the south. The phrase and what it represents became the symbol of Mexican Agrarianism.[1][2] After Zapata's death the Zapatista Army of National Liberation adopted a radicalized form of this philosophy known as Neozapatismo.
