Our comrades, who are part of the Zapatista movement are planning their
trip to Europe in the summer to coordinate and strengthen solidarity
networks on topics of feminism, antifascism, etc. They are looking to
coordinate with more groups/networks from Eastern Europe. Please get in
touch or share with your networks.

Dear friends and comrades,
as you might have heard a delegation from the zapatista movement and the
indigenous congress of Mexico (CNI) is planning to come to Europe this
summer. They want to meet people here and get to know eachother within
the fights/movements from the left and from below. It‘s about building
up connections in a global situation of crisis and strengthen a
globalwide anticapitalist, antifascist, feminist and ecological network.
In the future they also plan to visit other continents.
For now the situation got a bit unclear because of the corona-situation,
but the latest informations we have is that they want to come with 160
comrades (120 from the zapatistas and 40 from CNI, and at least 100 of
them are women). Of course they would not travel all the time with 160
comrades as it is also difficult with hosting, corona, etc. The plan is
to make groups of people who would travel in different routes. Concrete
topics they want to talk about are feminicides, fascism and ecology. But
in general they want to get to know the different fights and the topics
There is now a europeanwide coordination to plan the journey when the
comrades are here and there are several groups and movements coming
together there. Until now unfortunately there are not much
groups/movements from eastern europe in the coordination. So we are now
directly writing to you, as it is also a possibility to strengthen our
networks from left and below.
So the question is if you want to organize something with a part of the
zapatista/CNI-delegation. It could be very different things depending on
what is possible due to the local situation (how much people, what form,
online or reallife). And the other question is if you are interested to
get in touch with the europeanwide coordination for the
Due to feminist organizing there are also europeanwide meetings and now
there is a feminist encounter with the zapatistas planned (in case it is
possible again to meet with more people outside, but if it is needed we
adapt our plans to the situation). So maybe there are also people (but
no cis-men) interested in taking part in that encounter.
Here is also the communiqué, in which the zapatistas declare their
journey (in russian and english):
And here the decleration as an answer to their announcement to visit the
world, signed from different groups from everywhere. So if you want to
organize something, you can also look up there whoelse signed this
decleration in your country and connect with them.
If you have questions or like to get in touch write to:
In solidarity and rebellion,
wanya from the network to organize the zapatista/CNI delegation
