The incremental battle to win back space from capital with local action was a recurring theme.
In the afternoon the Edinburgh-Chiapas Solidarity Group updated people on Zapitista activity in the previous year, including the creation of the autonomous Assemblies of Good Governance, which have rotating delegates. The second speaker focused on autonomous health centres that are being self-organised to counter the racism against the indegenous peoples and the general lack and indifference to indigenous health issues by government health services in Chiapas.
