Himno Zapatista

The Himno Zapatista (Spanish: Zapatista Anthem) is the anthem of the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN), a political group which launched a rebellion in the Mexican state of Chiapas on January 1, 1994. The music was taken from a Mexican Revolution corrido "Carabina 30-30".

Lyrics

Estrofa 1

Ya se mira el horizonte
Combatiente zapatista
El camino marcará
A los que vienen atrás

First Stanza

Now we can see the horizon
Zapatista combatant
The way will mark
Those that come after us

Coro

Vamos, vamos, vamos, vamos adelante
Para que salgamos en la lucha avante
Porque nuestra Patria grita y necesita
De todo el esfuerzo de los zapatistas

Chorus

Let's go, let's go, let's go, let's go forward!
To take part in the struggle ahead
Because our Fatherland cries out for and needs
All of the effort of the Zapatistas

Estrofa 2

Hombres, niños y mujeres
El esfuerzo siempre haremos
Campesinos y obreros
siempre unidos con el pueblo

Second Stanza

Men, children and women
We will always make the effort
Peasants and workers
All together with the people.

For exploitation to end
Our history says now

Ejemplares hay que ser
Y seguir nuestra consigna
Que vivamos por la patria

And keep our slogan
That we shall live for the Fatherland
Or die for freedom
