Solidarity with the Zapatistas!

Call for Solidarity after Paramilitaries Burn Zapatista Coffee Harvest in Chiapas.

On August 22, 2020, the ORCAO paramilitary organization looted and burned two Zapatista coffee warehouses in Cuxuljá, Chiapas. This is the latest in an escalating series of attacks on Zapatistas and other indigenous communities resisting extractive mega-projects promoted by the AMLO administration on indigenous lands.

The affected Zapatista coffee producers formed part of an international solidarity effort that sent four tons of coffee to migrant and other communities in the United States in 2017. This profound act of solidarity built resources to resist repression and discrimination unleashed by the Trump administration.

As part of the network of organizations and communities who received and distributed Zapatista solidarity coffee, we call on all those who recognize that solidarity is our strength to denounce this attack on Zapatista autonomy and to help recover the loss of their coffee harvest.

As communities organizing our own autonomy on both sides of the border, we believe our best resource in the face of destruction and dispossession is each other, the organization of our resistance and rebellion beyond borders, and the construction of networks of solidarity and struggle that can build a new world together.

Please donate to our own coffee solidarity campaign for Zapatista communities!
