The Zapatista delegation continues its journey across insubmissive Ireland. On this day, the compas arrived in Dublin, where they met with several collectives and campaigns.

One of the highlights of the day was this jaw-dropping printing of the unraveling history of the Zapatista visit to Ireland, by Kate O’Shea @RumpusX, featuring linoprints by V’cenza Cirefice @cenza_v and the Galway Feminist Collective @GalwayFeminist

In Dublin, the delegation continued to meet with groups and collectives involved in housing activism, as well as climate and ecological justice.

Just like for working-class Dublin, memory plays a central role in the Zapatista struggle.

Zapatista delegates joined a discussion with Dublin housing activists this morning. What can we learn from each other’s struggles? How can we make another world, beyond the rule of capital?

Some real legends from working-class Dublin community activism and organising came out to meet the Zapatistas, along with younger participants and international solidarity activists. A world where many worlds meet.
