About Us

This is the blog of the Wellington Zapatista Support Group.

We work to raise awareness about the Zapatista struggle and other struggles related to or inspired by the Zapatistas.

We also do fund raising to support health care and education projects to communities in the Zapatista caracol of La Garrucha.

Zapata vive… la lucha sigue!

  1. Hemos hestado publicando los cuentos Zapatistas versión en Español en Oye Latino at Access Radio cada Jueves. Estos cuentos fueron escritos por el Subcomandante Marcos y estas grabaciones han sido leidas por escritor@s fomos@s como Eduardo Galeano. Si pudieramos lograr traer o hacer su traducción al Ingles, Podriamos ofrecer al publico CD’s de estos cuentos en Ingles y en Español. Hay alguién que pudiera ofrecer esta ayuda? Podriamos hacer cuento por cuento, en unos meses acompletariamos la traducción de los 12 cuentos que contiene este CD.

    En estos cuentos se contiene la filosofía maya en su versión para un mundo nuevo.

    Para recabar fondos este CD puede ser un buen recurso. Tengamos cada uno de nosotros una de estas versiones contribuyendo con una minima donación de $20 Dolares. Entregaré la mía

    Gracias por su atención

  2. We have been broadcasting the Zapatista’s tales in Spanish version at ¡Oye Latino! in Wellington Access Radio 783 AM sinse March 12 (look at it in our web). This stories written by Subcomandante Marcos are red in Spanish by famous writers such as Eduardo Galeano. We must have our version in English in order to show the Mayan, very nutritious tales for our spirit, looking at the new world we are creating. Also this CD’s could be a very good way to raise funds to send to those health projects at los caracoles in Chiapas. We can contribute a minimum of $20 Dollars for each CD. I will give my twenty to the Wellington Zapatista Support group.

    We need the translators (good translators) for us to do this project. Who says I! ? Please let us know.

  11. Hi,

    I live in adelaide, South Australia. I participated in the Little School in Chiapas in August and have just learnt about your art exhibition. I am interested in bringing it to adelaide, perhaps in conjunction with another art exhibition being planned in adelaide which highlights the ongoing struggle of the Kokatha Mula Nation in the outback of South Australia against mining and to maintain and protect their country and culture. Although the political context and tactics are quite different from the zapatista struggle, there is also much common ground. Here we would have to talk with the elders first, but just wanted to flag it at this stage and open lines of communication.

      We had a photo exhibition – would have loved to have an art exhibition but we don’t have the aart 😦 One of the photographers only gave rights for the one exhibition, so unfortunately we cannot send you the electronic files of their work. We will be in touch by email regarding providing the other files, if you would like to hold a photo exhibition.
