Going to Chiapas
People who wish to travel to Chiapas should contact the Edinburgh Chiapas Solidarity Group for advice. Members of the group have visited the Zapatista communities numerous times and as a result have written a very useful document of advice for people who wish to travel there. Those interested can write to us at:
For those who wish to do human rights observing in Chiapas you will need a letter of recommendation from a solidarity group. We have a policy that we only write letters of recommendation for people who we know well and feel that we can trust (e.g. you must have been a member of our group for a minimum of nine months). Also you must be fluent in Spanish or willing to take 1 -2 weeks of classes in the Spanish learning centre at Oventik. Please email us at email@example.com for more info.
