On Dec. 30, 1993, Dave McConnell watched two friends get married in Ocosingo, in the southern Mexican state of Chiapas.
Two days later, he and the newlyweds expected to go for a day trip.
Instead, they watched as the Zapatista Army of National Liberation overtook the town as part of an uprising against the Mexican government.
Then they watched the Mexican army take it back.
Now, McConnell is playing a role in a Chicago-based organization that provides humanitarian aid to indigenous people in Chiapas it says are being oppressed by the Mexican army. He was in Albuquerque on Thursday.
