The Zapatista insurrection occurred at a special moment in history when the counter hegemonic forces were debilitated and disarticulated. In these circumstances, it served as awake-up call for antisystemic movements around the world. The 2021 Zapatista Travesía occurs at a similar moment.
The pandemic has thrown many people and social and political movements off balance. Numerous approaches and initiatives have become obsolete under the new circumstances. Once again, the Zapatistas have hit the nail on the head and inspired thoughts and behaviours regarding the new reality.
In the first section, I examine the crisis of patriarchy, of the nation-state, democracy, and capitalism, as well as the options available from below, to demonstrate the importance of the new Zapatista initiative. In the second section, I reflect on the main theoretical and political contributions of Zapatismo. Finally, I recount activities and initiatives that have been inspired by Zapatismo.
