Description:

This group is for those who support Subcommandante Marcos, and his struggle in Mexico.

Plus, as revolutionaries go, he not only has an awesome story, but also a flair for the dramatic.

Take these examples:

• His true identity is unknown

• He never appears without a mask

• He takes his name, "Marcos," from that of a comrade who was slain at a military checkpoint.

• He's university educated, comes from the city, but isn't a native of Chiapas, or a member of any of the ethnic groups for whose rights he struggles.

• He's not just any other communist revolutionary, his ideals are quite reasonable and mainly just opposed to the neo-liberalist economic policies adopted by Latin and South America in the 1990's. Much of his platform includes protection from corrupt privitisation and autonomy for Mexico's indigenous peoples.

• He's believed to be a college philosophy professor.

• He's an extremely prolific writer, and has written scores of essays, and more than a dozen books.

• He travels with a mascot, a deformed rooster he calls "El Pengüino" or, "The Penguin."

• His two names are "Subcommander Marcos" and "Delegate Zero." How much cooler can you get? (read less)
