Caravana a Chiapas / Caravan to Chiapas

by IMC Friday, Dec. 21, 2001 at 7:10 AM

Este 26 de diciembre saldrá de Distrito Federal una de las tantas caravanas en apoyo a los municipios autónomos en Chiapas, México. / The latest caravan in support of Chiapas' autonomous municipalities will depart from Mexico City on December 26.

New Page 2

"El levantamiento zapatista era una nueva manera de proteger la tierra y la cultura: m bien que cerrarse del mundo, el movimiento zapatista arrojó abiertas las puertas e invitó el mundo adentro. Chiapas fue transformado, a pesar de su pobreza, a pesar de estar bajo sitio militar constante, en un lugar de reunión y encuentro global para los activistas, los intelectuales, y los grupos indígenas." - Naomi Klein

Caravana a Chiapas

Este 26 de diciembre saldrá de Distrito Federal una de las tantas caravanas en apoyo a los municipios autónomos en Chiapas, México.

El Aguascalientes 3, Francisco Gómez, ubicado en las cañadas de Ocosingo (en la selva Lacandona), será el punto de reunión y encuentro de los caravaneros con la comunidad zapatista.

Algunos de los objetivos de esta reunión son lo siguiente:

  • Apoyar en la construcción de la escuela autónoma, para el crecimiento de la  educación de los pueblos en base a sus usos y costumbres

  • Colaborar en la pintura de murales en la escuela, para tener rostro

  • actividades culturales, teatro, música, video, talleres manuales, etc.

  • limpiar las milpas para la cosecha de maíz, del café y del mañana

  • limpieza de la fosa aséptica (letrina) para mantener la salud



Además la caravana tiene como objetivo ser observador de derechos humanos y que éstos no sean violados por autoridades federales, estatales o del ejército federal, así como llevar testimonios de formas de lucha y resistencia de cada pueblo al que pertenecemos.

Este esfuerzo organizado se da gracias al trabajo de varios grupos, incluyendo Yaxal’chi, Facultad de Arquitectura UNAM, Casa de Cultura Benito Juárez, FZLN, y sociedad civil del Distrito Federal en México.



Todos estos grupos mantienen un trabajo con la cooperativa de café Smaliyel cuyo significado lleva por nombre: esperanza. Este trabajo se centra en el desarrollo del proceso del café (tostado) para una mejor calidad, buscando la distribución en sectores donde la población pueda consumir el buen café 100% orgánico a un bajo costo sin afectar su interés económico, generando una economía en base a la autonomía. Los beneficios benefician no sólo el proyecto de agricultura sino también proyectos de educación y salud de los pueblos que cultivan el café.

Desde Los Angeles, California, junto con compañeros de Chicago, nace el apoyo solidario de colectivos como el espacio comunitario Flor y Canto, el Comité de apoyo al  boicot Taco Bell, estudiantes y sociedad civil. Los compañeros sensibles a la situación asistirán en apoyo a los trabajos mencionados y compartirán con el dialogo las experiencias y formas de resistencia en California y Chicago.

 
Los trabajos hasta ahora realizados en LA son reuniones de información sobre la situación actual en México, los Acuerdos de San Andres, NAFTA, Plan Puebla Panamá, globalización y neoliberalismo, y una serie de eventos beneficio.

Todos están invitados a venir y participar en los próximos eventos cuales se realizarán esta semana antes de que sale la caravana:

“The Zapatista uprising was a new way to protect land and culture: rather than locking out the world, the Zapatistas flung open the doors and invited the world inside. Chiapas was transformed, despite its poverty, despite being under constant military siege, into a global gathering place for activists, intellectuals, and indigenous
groups.” - Naomi Klein


Caravan to Chiapas

The latest caravan in support of Chiapas' autonomous municipalities will depart from Mexico City on December 26.


The gathering point for the caravan participants and the zapatista community will be at Aguascalientes III, Francisco Gomez, located in the canyons of Ocosingo in the Lacandona forest.

Some of the objectives of this gathering are as follows:

  • Help with construction of a new autonomous school in order to assist the ongoing efforts of local peoples in establishing and maintaining an education system based on their own cultures, customs, and needs.

  • Collaborate in painting murals on the new school.

  • Take part in cultural activities, theater, music, video presentations, workshops.

  • Help clean and prepare the corn and coffee bean fields for harvest.

  • Help maintain/clean septic ditch/latrine.

In addition to these activities, by exchanging resistance information/testimony between villages, towns, and cities, the caravan will also help efforts to ensure that state, federal, and military authorities are not violating human rights in the region.


This project is the result of work by various  groups, including Yaxal’chi, School of Architecture - National Autonomous University of Mexico, Casa de Cultura Benito Juarez (a reclaimed autonomous space in Mexico City), EZLN, and general civil society from Mexico City and other areas

All of these groups have been working with the coffee cooperative Smaliyel (“Hope”). The focus of this work is on the development of a better process for coffee growth, production, and distribution, with the goal of providing higher quality 100% organic coffee at a lower cost without exploiting the coffee growers and producers, thereby helping to establish and maintain an autonomous, self-sufficient economy. The benefits and goals of this project extend beyond the immediate economic autonomy of coffee production to include education and health in the coffee-producing villages.

Local support and solidarity for the caravan comes from collective organizations like the Flor y Canto community space in Highland Park, the Taco Bell Boycott Committee, students, and local members of civil society, as well as from other groups in Chicago and elsewhere. Participants in the caravan will help with the various tasks involved, as well as engage in a vital dialogue on their own experiences with and forms of resistance in California and Chicago.

To date, local work here in Los Angeles has included meetings to exchange information on the situation in Mexico, the San Andres Accords, NAFTA, Plan Plueba Panama, issues of globalization and neoliberalism, and a series of benefit events.

All are invited and encouraged to participate in the following events scheduled in advance of the caravan departure:
