The mobilization of the Zapatista delegation proved symbolic and had a strong resonance with a whole generation of social movements throughout Europe. After two decades, another historic event will take place. Several Zapatista delegations will visit the European continent in July, August and September.

Two parallel stories are escalating in the Greek news these days. Both are of historical significance, but with very different volume of coverage. They are stories of two very different men, who share no resemblance but their first name. The men are Dimitris Lignadis and Dimitris Koufontinas, and their trajectories, already connected by means of sheer timing, could end up affecting each other, in the vilest manner. The former was until two weeks ago the Director of the National Theatre and is as of three days ago (20/2/21) arrested under multiple accusations of rape, paedophilia and child rape. This is the story that is dominating the news cycle. The latter is a former leading member, prime executioner and main political defender of the urban guerilla group 17th November. He is on hunger strike since the 8th of January, and thirst strike as of yesterday. This story is being covered sporadically. For now… On one hand, both are somehow connected to PM Kyriakos Mitsotakis and his family. And on the other hand, they are conntected with the corrupted function of the Greek justice system.
But first, some background context for the international audience.
