Women’s History Month
While American women argue about making 76 cents to every dollar that a man makes—while unfair—these Zapatista indigenous women of Chiapas, Mexico fight a racist, theocratic, militaristic state that is hostile to them and their children on a daily basis. Unlike the male soldiers in the The Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN), who place all their focus and energy on being a soldier for justice, the women soldiers have three roles: fight as soldiers/care for and feed their babies/fend off rape and abuse in the trenches.
Send these Lionesses positive energy of strength, safety and victory.
Viva EZLN! Vida a la Resistencia!
Fascists, oppressors shall not pass.
