We - Nosotrxs - Crossing Worlds and Galaxies

An online event co-organised by DECkNO with Global Tapestry of Alternatives and others, this event is available in Spanish and English.

Tuesday 13th June 2023

The diversity of women and the -others- that we are, remind us of the existence of the pluriverse, that is, the multiplicity of worlds that coexist in the world. The pluriverse makes us see that–contrary to what cis-hereto-patriarchal modernity led us to believe– the world is made up of many gender-sex diversities, worldviews, many worlds and galaxies, as expressed by the Zapatista grammar and struggle. It is from this alter, anti, pluri, and trans⋆ diversity that we invite you to listen to our situated and emotional reflections on what happens to us when we cross borders, bridge spaces, and weave tapestries as women on the verge, racialized, trans⋆ lesbofeminists, academics, mothers, activists or defenders of Mother Earth in these times of civilizational collapse.
