This article contains very little information about the Zapatista uprising itself, which should be the main focus. Charles Essie (talk) 02:07, 22 June 2013 (UTC)

It's odd that the heading includes a death toll, but the article is bloodless - it implies that despite being an armed uprising there was no gunfire. "The rebellion sparked several days of sustained fighting with the federal government, leaving dozens of people dead", according to the BBC. It's as if someone is trying to sanitise the article and present the Zapatistas as a bunch of fun-loving chums who just happen to walk around with rifles. 87.114.47.203 (talk) 00:52, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

POV[edit]

There is absolutely no way that this article is neutral. The Media Influence section especially presents the Zapatista forces as being simply Freedom Fighters desiring to end the tyranny of the government. This definitely needs to be addressed. --Stephen C Wells (talk) 18:52, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
