Join the Zapatista Peace Delegation with Schools for Chiapas!

February 2001

So that Maya children and their families in Chiapas, Mexico may
finally be able to attend their schools, work their lands, and live their
cultures without the threat of death and extermination. 

The first step toward peace with dignity in Chiapas is passage of the
Accords of San Andres by the Mexican legislature. During the month
of Feb. 2001 twenty-four leaders of the Zapatista revolt in Chiapas,
Mexico will travel to Mexico City to lobby for passage of the peace
agreement. These brave men and women have asked that Mexican
and international civil society accompany them on their ambitious
journey for peace. After years of building schools we know the
importance of ending the war in Chiapas.

Who should come along:
Musicians for peace and students for peace and women for peace
and Chicanos for peace and parents for peace and gays for peace
and basketball players for peace and cooks for peace and lesbians
for peace and mechanics for peace and union members for peace
and writers for peace and farmers for peace and teachers for peace
and singers for peace and dancers for peace and housewives for
peace and businesspeople for peace and ministers for peace and
Blacks for peace and priests for peace and Indians for peace and
carpenters for peace and electricians for peace and painters for
peace and computer experts for peace and drivers for peace and
mathematicians for peace and film crews for peace and soccer stars
for peace and everyone else who always wanted to become a part
of something important. 

Affirmative action:
Veterans of FOBRAPOBA, Seattle, Central America, NAFTA,
Vietnam, Popocatpelt, the intifada, Bosnia, the Gulf War, and
Operation Gatekeeper are especially encouraged to help make it
