Reflecting the aspirations of some of Mexico’s most repeatedly oppressed, marginalized, and exploited peoples—the indigenous Maya of Chiapas—the murals in Morelia paint a vision of a more just future. Here, male and female Zapatista activists machine-gun an evil capitalist monster with bullets reading "Education," "Freedom," and "Democracy." The banner above reads: "Death to the Capitalist and Its Monster!"
