Top Definition
A member of a revolutionary group in Chiapas in southern Mexico, which fights against neo-liberalism and for self-determination by the local indigenous peoples. It has an armed wing, the EZLN, and a political wing, the FZLN.
The Zapatistas have become iconic in the anti-capitalist movement, especially through their enigmatic figurehead, Subcomandante Marcos, who wears a ski-mask and writes almost poetic works of theory/strategy.
