The Mexican governments
low intensity war
in Chiapas

These articles look at the strategy followed by the Mexican army in Chiapas, that of a low intensity war. Rather then engaging in open conflict with the Zapatistas they are arming and protecting paramilitaries and harassing the communities through raids, roadblocks and intimidation designed to prevent them working their fields. I also include a number of articles giving the Zapatista counter strategy to resist this.
