This piece is about the future of the Zapatista Movement, about the young people who will one day be the elders who lead the councils that make desicions for the communities they are part of. But today these youth are the ones who are putting in the work to continue the Zapatista struggle and make sure that the work that has been going on for almost 30 years now continues and so that one day what they are fighting for will be reality.
