San Cristóbal de las Casas

"San Cristóbal was one of the four cities that the Zapatista Army of National Liberation took in its uprising in January 1994. While many people in San Cristóbal, who consider themselves traditionally rooted here (called "Coletos") are very much against the Zapatistas, there are also parts of the population (poor, civil society) that sympathize or openly cooperate with the Zapatista movement." - Wikipedia
