Talk:Subcomandante Marcos

Page contents not supported in other languages.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a very oddly structured section that gives very little actual detail on the subject matter, instead listing numerous events that Marcos has attended, without any further context being given. The sources cited are also largely from the Enlace Zapatista, which should be clear is not a reliable source. I think this subsection needs to be completely redone in order to provide actual information about Marcos' activities post-1994, possibly changing the heading to something more appropriate, or else it should be removed entirely. --Grnrchst (talk) 16:24, 5 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I am the author of this section. My purpose was to produce a brief picture of all the events that Marcos took part in so as to show the extent of his role as spokesperson and (for want of a better word) "front man" for the Zapatistas. I take the point made by Grnrchst, in that the purpose of this section is perhaps not made clear, so I intend to alter that in a week or so, but I feel that entirely removing the whole section is too much (throwing the baby out with the bathwater indeed!). Finally, I see no problem with the source (stated above as being Enlace Zapatista) as what is listed here are simple facts (dates, venues, event names), and these are all attested to by other sources (most often journalists reporting in La Jornada) and are not contested by anyone.

I have now completed the rewrite of the introduction to this section. Lucerito1957 (talk) 07:58, 26 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Name Change?[edit]

Galleano no longer goes by the name Marcos, as is noted in the article. Would a name change for the page be warranted and instead a redirect from Subcomandante Marcos to Subcomandante Insurgente Galleano be implemented? JBrahms (talk) 13:17, 17 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Court case?[edit]

The article says that there was an arrest warrant for him. I gather he was never arrested, and was never charged, and never taken to court. Is that right? Would it be possible to clarify this in the article? Jack Upland (talk) 22:16, 24 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
