I wonder, too... a friend of mine sent me a photo he took at the May Day
immigrants' rights march in Los Angeles, showing people carrying a banner saying
"Chiapas presente" in big letters.

On 1 May, Delegate Zero (Subcommandante Marcos) of the Zapatistas led a march[1]
to the US embassy in Mexico City in support of the immigrants' movement in the US.
