Indigenous Government Council: Power from Below

Location Details
Omni Commons, 4799 Shattuck Ave., Oakland, CA 94609
Event Type Panel Discussion
Organizer/AuthorMARY ANN TENUTO
The National Indigenous Congress met at the end of May in Zapatista Territory to form the Indigenous Government Council for Mexico, an anti-capitalist government from below and to the Left and based on the same governing principles that the Zapatistas follow. The new council named an indigenous woman as its spokesperson, and as a candidate in Mexico's 2018 presidential elections. What does that mean to those of us here in the U.S.? What ideas can we take away from this revolutionary project? A panel, which includes activists that just returned from a visit to Chiapas, Mexico, will weigh in on what they learned and present video footage and photos. Sponsored by the Chiapas Support Committee. Requested Donation: $5-10 (No one turned away for lack of funds). For more info: enapoyo1994 [at]
