Announcement of Fifth Anniversary of CNI in Chiapas
In a communiqué published on August 31, 2016, the National Indigenous Congress (CNI), together with the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN), convened the celebration of the Fifth National Indigenous Congress, which will take place from October 9 to 14 on the premises of the Indigenous Integrated Training Centre (CIDECI- Unitierra) in the city of San Cristobal de Las Casas, Chiapas.
It is worth recalling that the event will take place in the context of the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the CNI “a space of unity, reflection and organization of the indigenous peoples of Mexico, [which] celebrates 20 years of uninterrupted work, promoting the integral reconstruction of our peoples and the construction of a society in which all cultures, all colours, all peoples who are Mexico fit”. The statement raises the urgency to “find in these our flames of resistance, autonomy and rebellion that shine in each of the native peoples who spin new worlds from below, where love is born and ancestral commitment to our mother who is the earth.”
