“Capitalism, in its current neoliberal stage, takes on increasingly monstrous forms, declaring a open war against humanity and against the earth, our mother. The current economic development, based on a planetary scale in the prominence of financial capital that dominates entire peoples, nations and continents; supported by the large military and extractivist industry; growing through real or fictitious wars, the profusion of organized crime, as well as invasions and coups, is leading, in its insatiable logic of capitalist accumulation and consumption, to a limit that endangers the conditions of human life on the planet.”
In a statement the EZLN convened the FORUM IN DEFENSE OF TERRITORY AND MOTHER EARTH.
It will be held on December 21st and 22nd, 2019 at Caracol JACINTO CANEK (CIDECI of San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico).
The four areas to be discussed will be:
- Environmental devastation and destruction of Mother Earth in today’s capitalism: a diagnosis.
- Dispossession of indigenous, peasant and urban territory, dispossession of common goods, wars of occupation, extractivism and organized crime: growing aggressions.
- Capitalism and patriarchy: structural violence against women and mother earth.
- Construction of anticapitalist and antipatriarchal alternatives: our struggle is for life.
