Part 1 This past March 13th, 2022, the Zapatista National Liberation Army (EZLN) issued a statement calling for the global mobilization against all capitalist wars. Three days later, on March 16th, 2022, over 20,000 members of the EZLN demonstrated in six Chiapas cities in Mexico, to protest all wars, and to show their solidarity with the Indigenous peoples of Crimea, Ukraine, Russia, and the people of Ukraine, who currently resist a Russian invasion. The March 16th, 2022, action marks first massive appearance that the EZLN has made since 2012, when they appeared in different cities in silent marches, within the framework of the change of era according to the Maya calendar. Part of the demonstration is not only a call against all wars, including capitalism and militarism, as they have stated in the past, but also an urgent call to stop wars against Mother Earth.
