Emiliano Zapata - Mexico's Revolutionary

  • Whatsapp

Emiliano Zapata is a Mexican hero that helped defeated the decade's long dictatorship of Porfirio Diaz. He fought in favor of Campesinos and Indigenous and their right to land, saying that agricultural properties belong to those who worked them. He defended the vulnerable Campesinos from greedy land grabbers who enslaved the original owners of the land.
