Essex visits Sofia

Petar Stanchev from the Zapatista Solidarity Group Essex held a talk on the struggle in Chiapas in the social centre ¡Adelante! in Sofia, Bulgaria. The presentation "The Zapatistas - roots, struggle, lessons" kept the attention of the nearly 30 visitors of the centre for more than two hours and provoked numerous questions in the audience. 

The talk was followed by a discussion where the guests had the opportunity to share their knowledge on the Zapatista movement. The hosts from ¡Adelante! also talked about their experience in importing and selling coffee from the Zapatista coffee collectives from the southern Mexican state.
