Help build a popular bilingual Jr. High School in Zapatista territory

We invite you to participate in the effort to build a school for Indian children in the southeastern Mexican state of Chiapas. Since beginning an seemingly impossible rebellion three years ago, the indigenous people of Chiapas have survived and are moving forward with an ambitious educational project. Their struggle for human dignity has inspired international attention and welcomes your support.

This summer teams of Mexicans and internationalists will work with the indigenous of Chiapas to build a popular, bilingual education center in the Zapatista civilian community of Oventic. This Jr. High School will provide a new style of education fopr Indian youth and will be directly administered by civilian indigenous Zapatistas.

We are excited to facilitate the involvement of others in the inspiring process of social change sweeping Chiapas and all of Mexico. We know from personal experience that every participant in a brigade, like those wh support us from home, will gain far more from their indigenous Mayan hosts they they could ever give back.

Join us in the highlands of Chiapas!
