Edinburgh Chiapas Solidarity Group's picture
The Edinburgh Chiapas Solidarity Group is one group of many that form the 'UK Zapatista Solidarity Network' and one of many across the world which support the Zapatistas of Chiapas, South-East Mexico, in their struggle for a just and dignified life.

We do this by organising talks, film showings, benefit gigs, street stalls and direct actions as well as publishing articles. We import Zapatista produce such as coffee, clothing and jewellery for sale with the money going directly back to the 'Communities in Resistance'.
