A few days ago I visited the Zapatista region in Mexico. The Zapatistas are anarchists who revolted against the government in 1994, and still control a large area. I finally managed to write a blog post about my visit, and it includes some nice art from their town.

There are a lot of pictures, so maybe don't open it on a mobile connection.


If you don't care about my text and just want to see the pictures, you can see all of them here:


@nutomic none of the images are loading here, they are all being redirected with a "302 Found" to an empty html page.

@measlytwerp are you using Chrome? It works fine for me in Firefox, but I just tested in Chromium and it seems to be the same problem. It's probably because Nextcloud is trying to make you download the images, instead of showing them directly.

@nutomic Firefox here, could be that you have been cookied so it's not trying to force you to download?

@measlytwerp it also works fine in a private tab. I do have a bunch of extensions, but I don't think they would change anything. I will move the images somewhere else, but that will take a while.

@nutomic I'm using Firefox 62.0b20 if that helps. About to update.

@measlytwerp okay I moved all the pictures, it should work fine now.

@nutomic Thank you so much for the beautiful photos and updates. I imagine it was a powerful trip.

Also this blog platform looks kinda perfect. Just created an account to check it out.

@nutomic kindah weird you couldn't talk to people? Also, sounds like quite a few guards and security measures..

@jasper To be honest we didn't try to talk with people much, because none of us spoke spanish very well. We just tried to speak with our guide, but he was really quiet.

And the security measures seemed really minimal to me, because I had read previously that the Zapatistas were armed with rifles (which we didn't see).

@nutomic is your blog federated? Can I follow it through masto?

@christobal You can follow it at @nutomic. But it's not really a blog, more of a one-time thing to post the pictures. I don't really have plans to make new posts there.

@nutomic I have long had a feeling that the Zapatistas are about 1/3 of the reason for “the wall.”

@tibius That seems very unlikely to me, Chiapas is about the furthest you can get from the American border in Mexico. And they don't have any influence on national politics either.
