Duration: 120 min
In this roundtable, Zapatistas and their supporters will present the visions, trajectories and challenges of the Zapatistas in over three decades of indigenous organizing, caracole construction, and management of the commons. In particular, their current struggles in the face of the pandemic, extractivism, developmentalism, and divide and rule. The caracoles of good government are not just a form of government in building autonomy and self-reliance, with remarkable achievements in health, education, and livelihood, but the practice of different ways of life, of community relations, with different values and cosmologies, fostering hope for humanity.
