Army Zapatista

One remembers, that exists about 350 million natives anywhere in the world, in some cases maintaining his ancestral forms to us of life. Among them, most outstanding they are the nomadic towns and generally those towns that live in tribal societies. In many other occasions, the indigenous towns have been themselves forced to assimilate the western landlords of life, although they continue maintaining certain traditions or the language. They are more than five thousand towns with its own form to see the world, its cultural and linguistic particularitities and with a will more and more hard to vindicate them and to feel proud of them, in spite of centuries of oppression and cultural, political, economic and social domination on the part of socioeconomic groups more forts. Wikipedia contributes to us, quehistricamente, the indigenous towns of America have been object of discrimination and racism (discrimination in language, in labor and wage conditions, sexual discrimination), situations that they have been reflected in slaughters, the existence of a servile work and other many forms of injustice (mainly the permanence of the conditions of poverty). Nowadays the indigenous problem has been retaken. Numerous movements and indigenous organizations have been mobilized to reach the recognition of their cultures, for example the intercultural education and the right to the Earth. It is the case of the zapatista movement and the Army Zapatista de Liberacin Nacional (EZLN). The definition of the indigenous language as dialect is a prejudice, a discrimination form that considers, erroneously, that languages like Nahuatl or the otom, to give only two of the thousands of examples that exist, are forms to communicate less less complex and developed than the Spanish or the English or the French: the indigenous language is so complex and as rich as any other language of the world, and dialect defines, however, as all that one regional variant (local) of a same standard language (she is this one native or not).
