To commemorate the 25th anniversary of the founding of the Zapatista Army for National Liberation (EZLN) the Zapatista are now convoking the first 'Global Festival of Dignified Rage' to be held in Mexico on the 26th-29th December 2008.
The Other Campaign : Government from Below and to the Left, Everywhere
By way of solidarity, and in the midst of the credit crunch a group of sympathisers feel this is an ideal opportunity for a whole range of people from civil society within the UK eg public sector workers, migrant groups, religious groups, community activists and other interested parties, to convene locally focused Zapatista gatherings. We would like to encourage people to come together to plan a Zapatista-inspired movement in the UK.
In London: we see this as an opportunity for activists across the city to come together to discuss and plan concrete, decentralised/simultaneous actions; to consider how to build a Zapatistan inspired movement in the UK.
We will discuss this at the London Social Forum meeting
Tuesday 21st October at the Bartlett School of Planning, Rm 217A, Gordon St WC1 at 7pm. All welcome.
