According to Wikipedia (though I've read this other places)

On October 18, 2000, de la Rocha released the following statement :

Zack De Le Rocha wrote: I feel that it is now necessary to leave Rage because our decision-making process has completely failed. It is no longer meeting the aspirations of all four of us collectively as a band, and from my perspective, has undermined our artistic and political ideal. I am extremely proud of our work, both as activists and musicians, as well as indebted and grateful to every person who has expressed solidarity and shared this incredible experience with us.


As well...

Rage's second and third albums peaked at number one in the USA, but did not result in the political action Zack had hoped for. He became increasingly restless and undertook collaborations with artists like KRS One and Chuck D.

In October 2000, Zack left Rage Against the Machine, due to "creative differences." It is rumored that Tim Commerford's stunt at the 2000 MTV Video Music Awards, where he climbed on one of the fixtures on stage, was the catalyst for Zack's decision to leave the band.
