In the middle of Central Europe, a hundred Zapatista women, men and children left at noon from the airport of Vienna, Austria, the sixth most populous city on the continent, near the borders with Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, on the banks of the Danube river. Dozens of Viennese collectives and all of Slumil K'ajkemk'op eagerly await the arrival of the second part of La Extemporánea, an airborne delegation of the EZLN on its Journey through Life, which could not reach the connecting flight in Madrid.
Outside the Vienna airport, the Zapatista delegation was received with great emotion and warm words by Austrian and migrant women who welcomed them "home" in German and Spanish. Without removing his backpack, Insurgent Subcommander Moisés took the microphone to address his hosts in Europe talking about the defense of Mother Earth. “By name we already know who it is: it is capitalism. It is capitalism that is destroying the life of nature."
