Days 4 – 6

★ Ireland ★

The Zapatista Invasion to Insubordinate WISE Islands is underway!

Listen and Speech Teams from the Zapatista delegation La Extemporánea continue their tour around Ireland, meeting with grassroots organisations and people from below and to the left. The Journey for Life will continue in Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England.

October 15th: Cork

Because walking is a way of learning, the day started with a walk in the woodlands of Mullaghmore.

There was even time to practice hurling.

Later on, the delegation met with activist and communities around Cork to share their experiences of rebellion, resistance and self-governance.

Dialogues around decoloniality and radical democratic governance, utopian imagination, politics of language, housing, land, food sovereignty, solidarity, creative communal practices, education, empowerment, Palestinian solidarity, LGBTQ+ rights and more!
