With special guest Zapatista historian

Gloria Muñoz Ramirez

In October of 2007, people from 26 social justice
groups from around the region gathered in our East Harlem
  community for the first-ever historic “NYC Encuentro for Dignity and 
Against Gentrification.” We invited groups from around
the city who are fighting against gentrification from
the ground up to come share who they are, what
problems they face, who or what is their enemy and
what are their dreams. This film tells the story of
what was said.

Our special guest, Gloria Muños Ramirez, lived with
the Zapatistas for 7 years and wrote a book to share
their story that is now available for the first time
in English. She will speak about the Zapatista
resistance and history. Movement for Justice in El
Barrio will share some of the ways in which they
are inspired by this resistance and organize to achieve
autonomy and self-determination by implementing
urban Zapatismo here in NYC.
