Central America Wars

Central America and the Caribbean is a transition area between North and South America. In most of the area there are disputes between the poor - mostly the descendants of the indigenous inhabitants - and the rich - for the most part the descendants culturally of the Spanish invaders. There is also tension with the United States, for the most part supporting the rich and American corporations.
At present (2006) the fighting takes the form of riots and police death squads rather than outright war. Chiapas in Mexico is the scene of resistance from the Maya against the policies of the government.
