Ciudad Furor



Ciudad Furor is a project co-organised by the Latin America Solidarity Centre (Ireland) and Cinemaattic (Spain) and funded by the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport.

It consists of a festival with screenings from Latin America and Spain. The project also includes a number of theoretical and practical activities organised in cooperation with local partners.

The aim is to reflect on the urban fabric of the city of Dublin and explore local grassroots initiatives to reconfigure public space for cultural, economic or social use.

Brazil on Strike: Class Struggle in the Wake of the World Cup

Many labour unions are either in the process of negotiating with their respective employers (mostly municipal, state, or federal governments) in Brazil, while others are actively on strike. These include federal workers from the government bureaucracy, school teachers, city staff, and university staff and faculty. In this piece, I would like to highlight how unions in the transportation sector are highly represented in these labour struggles.

The Reality of La Realidad - Chiapas

Much media attention has been given to the recent passing of Subcomandante Insurgente Marcos, as is to be expected. However, it was largely and erroneously reported that he "stepped down as leader of the Zapatistas".  Anyone with a basic knowledge of the Zapatista movement will know that he has never been its "leader" but rather a spokesperson for the EZLN (Zapatista National Liberation Army). What happened in La Realidad, Chiapas, on May 24th was much more profound and poetic, as is typical of the Zapatistas.
