The land belongs to those that work it with their own hands. —Emiliano Zapata
La tierra es de quien la trabaja con sus manos. —Emiliano Zapata
One more addition to the Real Guatemala series. The campesino, the fieldworker, is an ever-stamp in the daily life of Guatemala we see then going to work the fields each morning. Sometimes they work somebody else’s finca, plantation, sometimes they work their own plot of land or as it happens on the skirts of the volcanoes, sometimes they work a plot of public land. Of course, in Guatemala, neither the wealthy landlords nor the government would agree with Emiliano Zapata.
