Please find below some additional information following the Zapatista's
ps: for those who are worried about having meetings during the pandemic
- there's also the possibility to organize something online! there is
still a chance to send an invite despite the deadline.
Dear friends and comrades,
now we got the information that a vanguard delegation of the delegation
will already head to europe on the 10th of april and arrive mid of june!
They want to visit all the people/groups who invited them before the
actual delegation comes.
More delegations will follow and visit the places they're invited to.
Confirmed are: Germany, Austria, Belgica, Katalunia, Denmark, Croatia,
Finland, France, Italy, Luxembourg, Nethterlands, Basque Country,
Poland, Portugal, Great Britain, Serbia, Switzerland, Turkey. We are
still in communication, because friends in some countries, for example
Czec Republic or Russia, also invited them but are not listed.
If you want to organize something with a part of the
zapatista/CNI-delegation invitations can still be send until 5th of
April. That's six months after declaring their journey to europe. So it
is very few time but we are trying to reach people/movements from places
where wasn‘t made an invitation to the zapatistas yet. But even if this
information reaches you too late or you don‘t have enough time to decide
it in this few time, please tell us if you want to invite the comrades.
And if you want to invite them directly write to: laotra(a)ezln.org.mx and
And there was also a message from the Zapatista women which the Sup
Galeano forwarded in the last europeanwide meeting:
„The comrades greet and embrace the women of that geography with the
same affection, respect and admiration that they embrace the migrant
woman or not, without organization, name or surname, without race or
language that distinguishes her, who in the streets or in her place in
Europe suffers disappearance, aggressions, dismemberment and death. They
salute their resistance, their struggles; be they big or small, be they
mediatic or not, be they fashionable or not, receive or not much
diffusion, solidarity, support and coverage.
So the comrades want to make clear that there is no interest in
priviledge one group of women above another.“
There has been also been some critiques from the zapatista comrades
towards organizing/thinking too much nationwise. And also about the lack
of organization from left and below (which became visible again in the
organization for the zapatista delegation).
As there is a European coordination to organize in between different
countries/movements/places for the visit of the zapatistas/CNI we can
also connect you there if you are interested.
And if you have questions you can write us to this mailadress:
Our conclusion at this time is: we have to continue with the planning
and preparations while staying really flexible about all the
circumstances. It remains being a challenge - the zapatistas are giving
us real-time lessons in organizing...
In solidarity and rebellion,
wanya from the network to organize the zapatista/CNI delegation
