Discussion about how to act as solidarity activists when the left comes to power and claims to need support for their policies. We alos want to have a critical debate on the state of Dutch initiatives for international solidarity.
The immeadiate reason for this workshop is the debate that emerged around the statement of the Zapatistas/EZLN in the South of Mexico, warning the new cente-left president Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) that they will resist his ‘development’ projects in the region if needed. This declaration has caused quite some debate in leftist circles all over the world (and in Mexico).
