Autonomía es Vida / Autonomy is Life. Poster in support of Zapatista Autonomous communities, facing a wave of attacks launched by the Mexican government and their repressive entities. Design originally created for the poster campaign coordinated by the Convergencia Grafica MALLA and the Escuela de Cultura Popular Martires del 68, “La Autonomia es la Vida, la Sumisión es la Muerte.”

The town is the Tzotzil Mayan community of San Pedro Polho, spiraling from its valley like a caracol, a snail. A sign outside the town states: "Welcome to the Zapatista Autonomous Rebel Municipality of San Pedro Polho, Chiapas. Here the people command and the government obeys." The sky is a representation of the map of Chiapas, with the Zapatista autonomous municipalities (large red stars) and caracoles (smaller stars).
