Mexico City Indians

NPR's Gerry Hadden reports that the largest concentration of Zapatistas in Mexico isn't in the jungles of Chiapas, but rather in Mexico City. Zapatistas are indigineous to Mexico and have been fighting since 19-94 for more rights. Right now, a caravan of Zapitistas from Chiapas -- a so-called caravan of peace -- is headed to Mexico City to help further their cause. And Zapitistas in the capital hope it will shed light on their particular urban problems.
