INVITATION: FORUM ON REPRESSION AGAINST ZAPATISTAS (MONDAY, FEB. 18 @ 7 PM)

Movement for Justice in El Barrio invites you to learn more about the escalating low intensity warfare being waged by the Mexican government against the Zapatista communities: the brutal displacement, death threats and incarceration.

This is the sort of repression which would escalate under Plan Mexico and which we must avoid at all costs! Help us Stop Plan Mexico!
Currently, there are 79 permanent military bases in Chiapas and paramilitary groups are threatening Zapatista families.

Our special guest Ernesto Ledesma from the Chiapas based Center of Political Analysis and Social and Economic Investigation (CAPISE) will share with us how the main three Mexican political parties (PAN, PRD and PRI) attempt to displace the Zapatistas from their land.

We will also present the New York Premiere of “One Big Train Called The Other Campaign”, a new documentary filmed by the Zapatista communities on the Zapatista initiated national Mexican movement.
