Mexico’s Zapatistas to Use Organic Coffee to Give Trump the Middle FingerThe indigenous resistance group will sell colorfully named "100 percent Zapatista coffee, cultivated in Zapatista lands by Zapatista hands" to raise funds for a cause sure to get under the president's thin skin.
The indigenous resistance group from Chiapas, Mexico, known as the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN), will sell colorfully named “100 percent Zapatista coffee, cultivated in Zapatista lands by Zapatista hands” to raise funds for a cause sure to get under Donald Trump’s thin skin.
From a story by the Latin American television network teleSUR, titled “How Zapatistas Will Help Trump Victims with ‘Fuck You’ Coffee”:
EZLN … announced Saturday that it will begin selling organic coffee from Chiapas in order to help migrants persecuted by U.S. President Donald Trump.
Working alongside allied international distributors, the EZLN will use coffee sale funds to provide financial assistance to U.S. deportees in Mexico. They will also use funds to support pro-immigrant resistance groups around the world protesting anti-immigrant governments.
The project is part of the group’s “Global Campaign Against the Walls of Capital,” which calls for worldwide immigrant solidarity against detentions and deportations. … “We hope that with this support they will be able to initiate work[s] of support for all persecutions and discriminations of the world.”
The EZLN insurgent subcommanders signed their statement with the words “fuck Trump.”
