As was announced at the First Encounter of Zapatista Peoples with the Peoples of the World (held in January of this year), the Second Encounter will be held in the coming month of July. The objective of this encounter is that persons, groups, collectives, and organizations that struggle against neoliberalism, in Mexico and all over the world, hear directly the word of the EZLN’s bases of support on the process of the construction of autonomy in the Zapatista indigenous communities of Chiapas. For this reason, the EZLN, through its Intergalactic and Sixth Commissions, convokes:

The Second Encounter of Zapatista Peoples with the Peoples of the World.

To be held in Zapatista territory July 20 through 28 of the year 2007, with the following characteristics:

  1. Que desasosiego no poder asistir a este encuentro! Como quisiera participar y contagiarme de la esperanza con tanto Zapatista de Mexico y del mundo! Pero mi apoyo y mi corazon estan con todos ustedes. Soy y me siento Zapatista. Sigo y seguire luchando de la mejor forma que me sea posible contra estas estructuras de explotacion, dominacion, alienacion aqui en las “entranas del monstruo”, como dijera Jose Marti.
    Animo y mucho exito. Seguire atentamente los avances de esta historica reunion.
