33 1/3 Gallery @ Zineorama, (16181/2 Silver Lake Blvd.) will host an opening reception this Saturday, December 15 at 7:00 p.m.

On the 24th of February 2001, twenty three commandantes and one sub-commandante left the autonomous (if besieged) mountains of South East Mexico to travel to the Federal District of Mexico City with three demands: 1. To seek approval of the Indigenous Bill of Rights. 2. To seek the withdrawal of seven military bases from indigenous land and 3. To seek the release of all remaining EZLN prisoners.

On the eleventh of March they walked onto a platform in the Zocalo (Mexico City’s picturesque town square) to see one million Mexicans cheer them and offer support and solidarity. This is an exhibit of photographs made by two Los Angeles based photographers following the EZLN Caravan on the last leg of the journey - from Milpa Alta through Xochimilco, repeating the famous march of Emiliano Zapata to the capital uniting the forces of the south to meet Francisco (Pancho) Villa, who was the leader from the north in November of 1914.




Having secured the support of the National Indigenous Council (CNI), the Zapatistas took the city with delegates from forty four of Mexico’s fifty seven indigenous nations. Seven Days on La Marcha is a ninety photograph-long ballad in homage to this wonderful movement of people.

The artists will be present, as well as a guest speakers and special live music. Prints will be available for purchase with portions of proceeds will go to the Zapatistas.
