Chiapas: CIG Calls for Global Day for Life #ElEncierroNoMeCalla April 4th to 10th

índice

Given the current coronavirus pandemic, the Indigenous Government Council (CIG) of the National Indigenous Congress launched a call for a Global Day for Life to be held from April 4th to 10th and asked “not to give up the struggle […] for humanity” after the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN) announced the temporary closure of the caracoles two weeks earlier.

“In defense of life and because #ElEncierroNoMeCalla [The lockdown won´t silence me], we invite everyone, collectives, networks, organizations, individuals, supporters and adherents of the Sixth, to participate and hold musical, theatrical, dance activities, singing, poetry, cinema, painting, photography, documentaries, book reading, analysis, discussion, reflection, conferences and everything you can imagine, to shout at the bad governments of the world; that despite the Pandemic we continue to fight for life, we continue to fight against capitalism of death and patriarchy.”

The aim is to spread these activities through social networks under the hashtag #ElEncierroNoMeCalla to denounce that “national governments make their fundamental decisions subject to the dictates of financial capital.”
