Jubilation at the release of the remaining 4 political prisoners of San Sebastián Bachajón

The Movement for Justice in El Barrio, New York, La Otra Campaña would like to share with everyone the great news about the release of social activists who endured unjust convictions imposed out of pure revenge by the misrule of repressive Governor Juan Sabines (PRD ) and repressive PAN President Felipe Calderon, just because they resisted and defended their land and autonomy as indigenous peoples.

They had to endure five months of unjust imprisonment.

¡Viva México! 11 Dec at 9pm OLSX camp, St Paul's Cathedral

Join us at the Cinema InTent at the London Occupy camp on Sunday 11 December at 9pm for a screening of ¡Viva México! 

¡Viva México!  -- In January 2006, the Zapatistas launched 'The Other Campaign' and that year, a group of Zapatistas, including Subcommandante Marcos and members of the alternative media travelled around Mexico visiting communities where people are living out daily, active struggles of nonviolent resistance. Communities fighting for a better Mexico and an alternative world with dignity and justice for all. This tour was an exchange of ideas, stories and strategies between the Zapatistas and the diverse social movements --farmers, workers, market traders, environmentalists to name a few-- organising up and down the country. There's no 'photocopying' or 'cutting and pasting' social movements, but the Zapatistas and our brothers and sisters in Mexico certainly offer a lot inspiration and valuable lessons. Come along, learn, share what you know and grow the world you dream.

For more information about Cinema InTent at OLSX, see their Facebook page.

About the Film + Photo Exhibition + Q & A Session

¡Viva México!  -- In 2006, Subcommandante Marcos, along with a group of other Zapatistas and members of the alternative media travelled around Mexico visiting communities where people are living out daily, active struggles of resistance. Communities fighting for a better Mexico and an alternative world with dignity and justice for all. This tour created connections between the Zapatistas and the diverse social movements, (small-scale farmers, workers, environmentalists, and more), organising up and down the country. This event is a telling of those experiences through images, film and question and answer.

Photo Exhibition by the Collective La Otra Mirada -- This exhibition is the result of a collective input of many photographers from alternative media that covered the journey of The Other Campaign in Mexico. The exhibition captures images from all over Mexico and describes the current social and political state of affairs in Mexico by focusing on marginalised groups and individuals that are organizing themselves to resist oppression.

Adolfo López, member of the Colective La Otra Mirada, and Nicolás Défossé, the film director, will hold a Q&A session after the film.
