From the Editors: Events beginning with the indigenous Chiapas uprising of January 1, 1994 point toward fundamental changes in "poor Mexico -- so far from God and so close to the U.S.," as the saying goes. Articles in CrossRoads March 1994 issue looked at the overall sweep of the uprising (by Arturo Santamaría Gomez), its roots in changing land ownership patterns (María Elena Martínez), and the current human rights situation as observed by a delegate to Chiapas (Gloria J. Romero). All this was before the assassination to presidential candidate Donaldo Colosio. Now, as the situation changes almost daily, we present another group of articles: John Ross's overview of Mexico's fluid political situation, an interview with Subcomandante Marcos and other Zapatista leaders, Salvador Peniche's analysis of the Chiapas Indian struggle within a global indigenous framework and a brief report on solidarity actions by Native Americans. CrossRoads will be closely watching various aspects of U.S. involvement, including reports that the CIA knew of discontent and violent repression in Chiapas last year but suppressed its knowledge at the time because it might have hindered NAFTA's passage.
