Thurs, June 19th, 3PM – June 20th, 5PM: Protest Paramilitary Attacks on Zapatistas
Since the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN) rose up in opposition to the North American Free Trade Agreement in 1994 and have continued to stand against free trade agreements like the FTAA, it has faced intense and violent repression from the Mexican government, including recent attacks that left an unarmed teacher dead and many others wounded. Rally to stop possible future attacks by gov't linked paramilitaries. Please, if you can, bring food to share, bottled water, musical instruments and blankets or sleeping bags since we will be there all night. (To learn more about the link between anti-TPP activism and Zapatista solidarity read WHAT DOES THE UPCOMING #ZAPATISTA FREEDOM SCHOOL HAVE TO DO WITH #TPP?, an article by TradeJustice's Malú Huacuja del Toro).
