What the Zapatistas Can Teach Us About the Climate Crisis

Jeff Conant

Author Jeff Conant spent many productive years working in Zapatista communities. Now he works with Friends of the Earth with a focus on climate justice. In this article he puts his years of experience in both fields on paper: “Probably the most commonly asked question of people just arriving at a deep concern for the ecological crisis is, ‘What can I, as an individual, do to make things better?’ The simple answer, which I learned from living among Zapatista villagers, is nothing”.
There is of course more to this “nothing”, please read the excellent article.
