The Zapatistas And The Other Campaign

Fri 19 May 2006 // 19:30

(Fri 19th / 8pm / £3/2)

Film and discussion

In the summer of 2005 the Zapatista movement in Mexico launched a new
political initiative to unite indigenous groups, civil society, political organisations of the left and workers organisations. The 'Other' campaign, as it was named, is an attempt to oppose neo-liberalism and capitalist globalisation both in Mexico, Latin America and worldwide. There is
considerable interest in the form and content of the 'Other' campaign yet little information has filtered throught to the UK. This meeting will
provide information about the campaign and the latest developments.

The main speaker has been in Mexico for 6 years working with KIPTIK a
Bristol based Zapatista solidarity group.
