Description

Targol Mesbah
Assistant Professor, California Institute of Integral Studies 

Targol Mesbah will discuss Mexico's Zapatista indigenous peasant movement, which for 25 years has resisted colonial and racialized capitalism by building autonomous communities, councils and schools to create a world in which many worlds fit. The speaker will reflect on what lessons the political theory and practice of this leading contemporary social movement can teach those in "other places" about living, learning and teaching during intensifying environmental destruction, political violence, and displacements of human and non-human populations.
