Zapatista Women’s Statement: “On March 8, thousands of Zapatista women will gather in our caracoles and talk about the pain and rage that we heard in the two [international] women’s gatherings that we have held, but also about our struggles—ours as Zapatista women and yours, compañeras and sisters who are reading these words.

The Inuktitut name for the current service is Kamatsiaqtut (meaning ‘thoughtful people who care’). The initial operation started with 14 volunteers, who underwent 16 hours of training.
