    Abstract

    When the Zapatistas rose up in 1994, social movements around the world took notice. Many activists travelled to Mexico to see what was happening or asked ‘what can we do?’. In response the Zapatistas organised two “Intergalactic Encounters for Humanity and against Neoliberalism”, the first one in Chiapas (1995) and the second in the Spanish state (1996). At the second of these, movements from the global South insisted on the need not just to reform neoliberalism but to defeat capitalism completely, and to produce a resistance as transnational as capital.
