CAPTION ONLY: INDIANS GATHER TO SEND A MESSAGE

Indians wait outside the entrance to the town of San Andres Larrainzar, Mexico, on Thursday, where talks between the Zapatista National Liberation Army and government officials were to begin later in the day. The demonstration of more than 1,000 Indians has angered government officials, who say it jeopardizes the peace talks. The two sides agreed earlier this month to meet in Chiapas for their first formal talks in more than a year. The Indians plan to remain in the town for the duration of the peace talks as a warning to the government that the Zapatistas speak for the whole state of Chiapas.
