Chiapas Mexico Revolts

NEWS
January 2, 2001 | From Associated Press
Zapatista rebels marked the seventh anniversary of their 1994 Indian rights rebellion with praise for Mexican President Vicente Fox's efforts to restart peace talks--and a warning that his actions don't go far enough. A day after the government announced that it was closing a second military base in a conflict zone of the troubled southern state of Chiapas, the Zapatistas said they would settle for nothing less than the closure of all seven bases located near rebel strongholds.

San Diego teacher Peter Brown, who organized "tourists of conscience" to build a middle school in a pro-Zapatista village in Chiapas state, was deported from Mexico on Saturday for allegedly interfering in the nation's internal affairs. Brown's son, Erin Eldred-Brown, said by telephone from San Diego that his father was flown from Mexico City to Houston on Saturday afternoon and was expected home late Saturday night. He had been arrested late Friday.
