Artworks from then 50 artists from all over the world will be for sale. All funds are being used to finance the Zapatistas delegation visiting the Netherlands later this year. This is a collective exhibition being organised by different grass-root collectives in Europe like Yretiemble in Spain.
Ejército Zapatista de Liberación Nacional and the Journey for Life
The group left Mexico in April this year, and is on its way to the continent, 500 years after the supposed conquest, of what is today “Mexico”, by Europeans. The year 2021 marks 20 years of the March of the Color of the Earth, which aimed at claiming the group’s place in a collapsing Nation. The Zapatistas set sail on their journey to tell the planet that there is room for everyone in the world that they hold in their collective heart – and that that world will only be possible if we unite in our struggles to build it together.
The Zapatistas, since their creation, demand work, land, housing, food, health, education, independence, freedom, democracy, justice, and peace. La Gira Holanda recognizes and supports the struggles of this group and hopes to be able to join this Journey, along with all of you who might be interested in this movement, which just like the waves in the ocean, keeps on growing!
During the last months, several organizations throughout Europe established contact and united in order to receive the EZLN in their journey “La Gira por La Vida”. Several working groups were created and there is a beautiful and extensive solidarity network with volunteers from all different backgrounds, social movements, identities, social classes, languages, and roots.
Part of the work that the Coordination Group is doing in The Netherlands consists of supporting all the logistics of the compa’s Journey in the country, as well as all related political and social events. We hope to raise enough funds to support them with housing, food, transport and legal aspects the best way we can - in exchange, we want to learn from their struggles and experiences, and listen to the revolutionary message they carry with them.
