Ejercito Popular Revolucionario (EPR)

The Partido Democratico Popular Revolucionario (PDPR) and its military wing, the Ejercito Popular Revolucionario (EPR - Popular Revolutionary Army) are active in Mexico. The self-proclaimed Popular Revolutionary Army (EPR) unveiled itself in the southwestern Guerrero State on 28 June 1996 during a ceremony marking the anniversary of a state police massacre of local peasants. The EPR has conducted small-scale attacks in several states, mostly against Mexican military and police outposts, public buildings, and power stations. The group has killed at least 17 persons, including several civilians. The Zedillo government characterized the EPR as a terrorist group.
