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 about their Coronavirus pandemic response (now translated into various languages).
In that moment, Schools for Chiapas committed to raising a million pesos to support Zapatista autonomous health services. As of late April, Schools for Chiapas reached the ONE MILLION PESO mark. Zapatista leadership was extremely encouraged to hear of this solidarity. But reports from rural Mexico continue to reveal the inadequacy of health services to meet the needs of the population, and as we have seen in the U.S. the virus is not going away anytime soon. So we have decided to double our pledge.
Please support the rural autonomous Mayan communities of Chiapas, Mexico in addressing this public health challenge where the lack of running water, poor nutrition, and limited access to medicines make the coronavirus.
