It is exactly neo-liberalism which leads to extractive trade practices and
the economic imperialism that the Zapatistas are fighting against. A
magazine named Counterpunch leaked a memo by some banking bigwig
that insisted that the Zapatistas would have to be crushed before US
business would feel safe investing.  There is no such thing as
"peaceable capitalist progress"
