A BriCO perspective: from the Migrant Refuge in Salto de Agua

Every morning we would walk for 10 minutes through the town of Salto de Agua to arrive at the Casa Betania migrant refuge center. Passing through a mix of confused stares and friendly greetings during our route, we would cross over the tracks of La Bestia, the same cargo train that thousands of migrants have used in their journey north.

Our sincere thanks to Lalo Morales for spending a month in the service people in movement and for taking the time to write this account. If you have the time and inclination, we highly encourage you to volunteer with Frayba in the BriCOs as a human rights observer.

Who Are Las Abejas de Acteal, Chiapas? Find Out About Their Beginnings and Their Struggle

As the 25th anniversary of the Acteal Massacre approaches, we share this article with you as an basic introduction to Las Abejas de Acteal, their origins and the events surrounding the massacre on December 22nd, 1997.
Not all of Las Abejas were in agreement with the agreement made with the AMLO government, which is mentioned in the article. For this reason, Frayba continues to send civil observers to Acteal. As part of Schools for Chiapas ongoing collaboration with Frayba, we are recruiting volunteers. If you would like to find out more about the work of the BriCos, or perhaps even come as a volunteer for two weeks in Acteal, please visit our website here:
