Chiapas: “David Ruíz García” Day of Autonomy in San Cristóbal de Las Casas


On June 21, in San Cristobal de Las Casas, Chiapas, homage will be paid to David Ruiz García, a member of the National Indigenous Congress (CNI), who died accidentally on the caravan which went to La Realidad on May 24 and 25. In addition, the word of the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN) and what took place during the homage to the Zapatista José Luis Solís López, “Galeano,” in the Caracol Mother of the Caracoles in the Sea of Our Dreams, will be shared. Money will also be raised for the reconstruction of the School and Clinic in La Realidad, which were destroyed after the attack last May 2.

From 10 in the morning and throughout the day in Espacio Wapaní (No 10 Flavio Paniagua Street), there will be workshops in photography, communication, herbalism, theatre, dance and music, among other activities.
