||Over the last few years movements and international networks across the world have been formed and have risen up to fight capitalism. In Europe and North America these movements and their international networks have shut down meetings of the WTO, IMF, World Bank. Across Latin America in recent years some these movements have become massive and have even overthrown a number of neo-liberal governments - from Peru in 2000; to Argentina in 2001; to Ecuador in 2000, 2003 and 2005; and to Bolivia in 2003 and 2005 . Some of the most influential of these networks and movements have been inspired by the Zapatistas of Mexico and have become part of international Zapatismo. In this article, I will be looking at the rise of international Zapatismo. Before doing so, it is important to first give some background information on the recent history of neo-liberalism. In the light of this history, the rise of international Zapatismo - and other initiatives - becomes even more remarkable.
