1 - ZAPATISTAS DENOUNCE PARAMILITARY ACTIVITY
The Roberto Barrios caracol, a political/cultural center of Zapatista resistance, denounced paramilitary activity that  left the autonomous municipality of La Dignidad under a virtual state of siege.  At least 160 armed paramilitaries surround the community and have established a "permanent presence" on Zapatista lands.  Authorities from Roberto Barrios report armed paramilitaries blocking roads, burning 40 acres of crops, stealing corn harvests and threatening to assassinate people in Zapatista support bases.
