Anti-capitalist solidarity: Make a donation to acquire artesanía zapatista

Show Your Support for Zapatista Autonomy:

Make a donation for blouses & purses, hand-embroidered and created by Zapatista women artists in Chiapas!

The year 2020 has made our call and our work for solidarity and justice across borders even more urgent. Indigenous people in Mexico, like in the U.S., have been among the hardest hit by the pandemic. Your support, your donations, are crucial to express solidarity with heart, love and respect! And we have a lot to learn!

The members of the Chiapas Support Committee (CSC) have focused on raising awareness on the situation in Chiapas and Mexico. This year we continue to find new ways to support the work of Zapatista communities who have been organizing autonomous power, as they create and strengthen their projects for self-determination in health, land and justice in the midst of a world capitalist crisis.

Today, we are inviting you to join us in taking care of one another by taking anti-capitalist solidarity action that supports the organizing resistance by Indigenous people in Chiapas.

“I don’t believe in charity. I believe in solidarity. Charity is so vertical. It goes from the top to the bottom. Solidarity is horizontal. It respects the other person. I have a lot to learn from other people.”—Eduardo Galeano

We invite you to consider making a donation to acquire one of the following items produced by members of a Zapatista women’s artist collective. Each item comes with a suggested minimum donation. And we ask you to consider being as generous as possible for each item!
