Chapter Summary

Mexicans living in rural areas of the Mexican South are facing ever-deepening social, political, and economic crises at the current moment. Southern Mexico is the richest region in the country in natural resources, cultural diversity, and biodiversity. This chapter examines the prospects for movement building in Southern Mexico at the moment. In this discussion, the chapter attempts to make sense of the impasse that rural and indigenous-led social movements in the South are facing in the context of the crises. The current crisis facing Southern Mexico is also political, and it includes two key, interrelated dimensions. The chapter discusses briefly the Zapatistas in Chiapas, the campesino led movement in San Salvador Atenco, the Popular Assembly of the Peoples of Oaxaca, and the Mexican Alliance for the People's Self-Determination, which stretches across the Mexican South.

Keywords: indigenous-led movements; neoliberal crises persist; southern Mexico
