In pictures: Cooking in the Danger Zone - Haiti and Mexico
Zapatistas

Concerned that land would be bought by rich land owners, some of the farmers formed the Zapatista National Liberation Army the day Nafta began. At least 150 people were killed in the 1994 January uprising.

Since then the group has campaigned for greater indigenous rights and the government has granted effective autonomy in several areas of southern Mexico.

Cooking in the Danger Zone: Eating with America's neighbours will be broadcast on Sunday, 23 March, 2008 at 1900 GMT on BBC Two.
