Tierra y Libertad

Tierra y Libertad is a reflection of the new generation of farmers working land within autonomous communities of the Zapatistas. Tierra y Libertad is a slogan that was popularized during the turn of the century by Mexican Revolutionaries like Emiliano Zapata who were fighting to give the land back to the indigenous population from whom it was expropriated.
