The Zapatistas announced their plan to begin a Journey for Life across the globe in autumn 2020. Despite what seemed like insurmountable bureaucratic and logistical obstacles, the first episode of the plan came to fruition with a journey to Europe, Slumil K’axkemk’op, in 2021. As part of that journey, they visited Ireland in October of that year. In this article, Andrea Martinez gives her impressions of that visit. Andrea, a PhD graduate in philosophy and political activist, is a Mexican national living in Dublin where she works as a teacher and researcher.
