The Indigenous Bill Of Rights
Photographs by Danny Turner-Lloveras
Mexico City, Mexico
The pictures in this photo essay were taken by Danny Turner-Lloveras on March 11, 2001 in the Zocalo of Mexico City. On that day, over 250,000 people gathered to celebrate the arrival from Xochimilco in the state of Mexico of the Zapatista (EZLN) Caravan. The Zapatistas were in Mexico City to promote the passage of the Indigenous Bill of Rights, also known as Los Acuerdos de San Andres, and to address Congress on the virtues of the Bill.
