On January 1st 1994, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) came into effect. A few minutes after midnight Mayan troops took over the South East Mexican town of Chiapas under the name Zapatistas, aiming to represent the people of their country, while also fighting the inherent evil they saw in so-called 'Free Trade'. Experts such as Noam Chomsky offer their comments on events with narration by actress Daryl Hannah and others; and an impressive soundtrack features fellow insurrectionists Rage Against the Machine, Neil Young and many more.
