Another Kind of Politics: Community Power, Autonomy, Zapatismo, and the US
2/28/2006 6:00 PM

This workshop will facilitate a discussion on community, autonomy and alternatives to the current US political system with a short info session on the Zapatista's Sixth Declaration of the Selva Lacandona and the Other Campaign. The info session will be brief, and the majority of the workshop will be discussion based.

The current projects of the Zapatistas provide inspiration for international communities to evaluate their own forms of resistance moving towards international networks of anti-capitalist struggle. We hope to broaden the dialogue about building community and creating autonomous spaces in the USA.



Location:
Thomas Merton Center, 5125 Penn Ave, Garfield
