The Chiapas Support Committee at the Omni Oakland Commons.
Nov. 17, 2015, 7-9 pm | 4799 Shattuck Avenue, Oakland, CA 94609.
With the Zapatistas: On November 17, the Zapatistas (EZLN) commemorate their 32nd anniversary of organizing and resistance. In Oakland, the Chiapas Support Committee, a grassroots community group that raises awareness of issues concerning the Zapatistas and Mexico, will hold a community forum November 17th to reflect on the significance of the struggles and vision of the Zapatista communities for our justice work and organizing here.
La Escuelita Zapatista: Recently the Zapatistas launched Level Two of their Escuelita (“Little School”) for supporters of the Zapatista movement. This “second grade” course was done online for students who passed the first level, which was held in Chiapas in 2013 and 2014. Local participants in the Oakland Bay Area will discuss what we have learned so far from levels 1 and 2.
