When the EZLN retreated to their communities, the army did not immediately pursue them. These communities declared themselves independent of the national and state governments. They governed themselves and established their own network of public services under the banner of Zapatismo. The government brought in additional military units, militarized the state, and developed a counterinsurgency plan of threats and harassment that was initiated in 1995, more than a year after the uprising. During this period, additional Word of God communities became Zapatista communities seen as an application of their biblical reflections.

Keywords:   Zapatismo, militarized state, counterinsurgency, Word of God communities
