The WALLS OF CAPITAL, THE CRACKS ON THE LEFT,” a seminar of critical reflection, starts today
Registration began for “The WALLS OF CAPITAL, THE CRACKS OR THE LEFT,” a seminar of critical reflection started on Tuesday, April 11, 2017 at 10:00 am in the installations of CIDECI-Unitierra in San Cristóbal de las Casas. The gathering takes place within the context of the global campaign: “Faced with the Walls of Capital: resistance, rebellion, solidarity and support from below and to the left,” convoked by the Chiapan rebels, who rose up in arms on January 1, 1994.
The international campaign Facing the Walls of Capital, has the objective of “calling for organization and worldwide resistance, faced with the aggressiveness of big money and its respective overseers on the planet that now terrorize millions of people all over the world,” the indigenous Zapatistas communicated last February 14 on their official web page. “We call to organize with autonomy, to resist and rebel against the persecutions, detentions and deportations. If anyone must go, let it be them, those above,” the Chiapas rebels argued with respect to the mass deportation of migrants on a global scale. “Every human being has the right to a free and dignified existence in the place that seems best to him, and has the right to struggle to stay there,” they added.
“One must organize. One must resist. One must say “NO” to the persecutions, expulsions, prisons, walls and borders. And one must say “NO” to the bad national governments that have been and are accomplices of that policy of terror, destruction and death. Solutions don’t come from above because that’s where the problems are born,” the Zapatistas exposed, in a climate of constant demonstrations of non-conformity that have taken place in Mexico, with the administration of Peña Nieto and Donald Trump, in the American Union.
The speakers at the seminar of critical reflection held at CIDECI-UniTierra, from April 12 to April 15, 2017, will be: Don Pablo González Casanova; Carlos Aguirre Rojas; María de Jesús Patricio Martínez (CNI); Arturo Anguiano; Paulina Fernández C; Sergio Rodríguez Lascano; Alicia Castellanos; Christian Chávez (CNI); Magdalena Gómez; Carlos González (CNI); Gilberto López y Rivas; Luis Hernández Navarro and the EZLN’s Sixth Commission.
