Manchester Zapatista Collective at Manchester and Salford Anarchist Bookfair
Manchester Zapatista Collective will be at the Manchester and Salford Anarchist Bookfair this Saturday 10th December at Islington Mill. For more information see here: http://bookfair.org.uk/
We will have fresh off the press and on sale the English translation of the book published after the Seminar for Critical Thinking from May 2015, Critical Thought in the Face of the Capitalist Hydra I: Contributions by the Sixth Commission of the EZLN, on sale for GBP 12.
In May of 2015, the Zapatista Army for National Liberation (EZLN) hosted a seminar in Chiapas, Mexico, titled “Critical Thought in the Face of the Capitalist Hydra,” in which they invited thinkers from across the world to join them in analyzing the economic instability, unceasing war, mass displacement, and ecological devastation that today characterize our world. This book presents the complete set of interventions made by the EZLN at that seminar. https://dorsetchiapassolidarity.wordpress.com/2016/12/02/by-way-of-prologue-on-how-we-arrived-at-the-watchtower-and-what-we-saw-from-there/
We will also give a talk at 6pm on ‘The Zapatistas: New Initiatives and Critical Thinking in the Face of the Capitalist Hydra’
It has been 34 years since the Zapatista Army for National Liberation in Chiapas started organizing in clandestinity, 22 years since the Uprising, and 13 years since the Good Government Councils in autonomous Zapatista territory were announced. This talk gives an overview over what has been done to date, of new initiatives since 2013, and
introduces the book ‘Critical Thinking in the Face of the Capitalist Hydra’, a collection of contributions of EZLN members to the seminar on critical thinking organized in Chiapas in 2015.
We hope to see you there!
In solidarity, MZC
