Celebrating life and surviving the pandemic ~ Solidarity with the Zapatistas in 2021
Your support will help save lives in the Zapatista communities of Chiapas, Mexico during and after the pandemic! www.GiftsofChange.org
Once again this year Schools for Chiapas is prepared to double all donations of any size to support the Zapatista Health Care system’s efforts to resist COVID-19. That means if you can afford $10 or $100 or $1400 will match your donation in full.
Yes, that also means if you can afford $5 we’ll send $10 to Chiapas; or if you want to donate your entire stimulus check we’ll give $2800 to the Zapatistas.
Please only donate if your food and housing is secure. If you cannot donate money at this time, we welcome your support as a volunteer working from your home.. You can join our volunteer team and help us develop creative form of Zapatista solidarity by signing up on this form!
On March 16, 2020 the Zapatistas wrote: “we exhort everyone everywhere, (men, women, and transgender people) in Mexico and the world, to take the scientifically-based sanitary measures necessary to allow us to move forward and get through this pandemic alive.” Click here to read the Zapatistas’ words from 2020 about their Coronavirus pandemic response (now translated into various languages).
We deeply appreciate the massive outpouring of support for the Zapatistas’ fight to survive COVID-19 during 2020 ~ we hope that you will continue that support in 2021. It’s clear that the pandemic isn’t going away anytime soon in Chiapas where vaccines are extremely hard to obtain and the official government is carrying out a violent counterinsurgency campaign against the autonomous, Mayan communities.
Please support the rural autonomous Mayan communities of Chiapas, Mexico in addressing this public health challenge where the lack of running water, hunger, and limited access to basic health care make the Coronavirus particularly dangerous.
