Compañeras and compañeros

Less than a month before the beginning of the Festival de la Digna Rabia, we give you this informative bulletin regarding certain organizative details and the logistics which we believe may be of interest to you.

So far we have registered the following collectives and organizations who are coming down to tell us about and share with us how they struggle and organize themselves with rage and dignity, down below and on the left.

As we had previously told you, since the cost of the materials for the construction of the exhibition stands is going up, and since we need enough time to build the stands, we need to close down the registration, so the last day of registration for stands will be the 12th of december.

Remeber that this registration is only for those who wish to participate as expositors or in any of the roundtables and cultural activities in Mexico City. The entrance to all activities in the Festival is free and open to anyone who wishes to come and get to know the rage with dignity that organizes itself in Mexico and in the world.

– We are trying to get transportation from different meeting points within the city to the Lienzo Charro. More information in the web page in the next few days.

On transportation and accommodation
As it had already been announced, the space available in buses travelling from Mexico City to Chiapas and back to Mexico was limited, since, during this season, it is very difficult to get all the buses that are required. Because of this, we inform you that there are no places left in the buses. We are making an effort to get a place for those who have written requesting transportation and within the next few days we will tell you whether or not we can receive any more reservations, but, for the time being, the registration list has been closed. In regards to accommodation in San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas, at the hotels which had been reserved, we are about to fill all the spaces available.

Accommodation in Mexico City: We are checking with other adherent organizations of the Other Campaign if they can supply some spaces were the people coming from the outside can stay and sleep in sleeping bags. When we have confirmed the place we will announce it on the web page. So be ready.

More accommodation in San Cristobal: There will be some place for tents and for sleeping bags within the Cideci’s facilities.

Well compañeras and compañeros, so far this is how we go. We will keep informing you and giving more details about the roundtables and the cultural agenda, as well as more information that helps you plan your stay and participation at the Festival in the best possible way.
