Constructing narratives for change / Learning from the Zapatistas

za 23 feb, 2019 : 12:00 - 13:30

How did the Zapatistas turn a local conflict in the south of Mexico into an international struggle for solidarity and even inspire a global movement? Jorge DS argues that they used the power of words as their weapons to shape public opinion. What can we learn from the their use of narrative and rhetoric in making social change? Nederland Wordt Beter/KOZP and Harriet Bergman of Code Rood will reflect on their experiences in the Netherlands. Moderator: Merel de Buck
