Friday 8 August: ‘Zapata’s Garden’ Film Screening and Raffle Draw

You are invited to:

Zapata’s Garden – Film Screening and Raffle Draw

Friday 8 August, from 8.00 pm
at Happy, corner of Tory and Vivian Streets, Wellington. Entry by koha.

All proceeds from this fundraising event will go towards assisting the people of the Caracol of La Garrucha to deliver basic health services.

The Wellington Zapatista Support Group is organising a raffle draw and a screening to raise awareness of the struggles of some indigenous peoples in Mexico.

The first prize of the raffle draw will be the fascinating autographed book of “Las noches de fuego y desvelo”, an erotic novel by Subcomandante Marcos. The Second prize will be a copy of “Filosofía y educación”, Doctoral Thesis of Rafael Sebastián Guillén Vicente, widely believed to be Subcomandante Marcos.

“Zapata´s garden” is shot and produced by indigenous people in the Autonomous Municipaltiy of Emiliano Zapata. This video looks at the new society that the Zapatistas are building. Fighting the effects of globalization and government corruption, community members talk about
the importance of collective work in building up this new society, “We don’t want things to be as they were before. Now we have land to work, and with it we will feed ourselves and our children.”

Don’t miss this opportunity to know more about the Zapatistas and join us at Happy on the corner of Tory and Vivian streets, Friday August 8.00 pm. Admission to the screening is by koha.
