Monday 28 May
Benefit Dinner: Tila Commons, Chiapas
Members of the indigenous ch'ol community in Chiapas, Mexico, near the town of Tila live on the communal lands of an 'ejido' (roughly: Commons). They mostly live in peace with their non-indigenous neighbours, except with the authorities who wanted to take part of the communal land. The members of the commons expelled the bad government and started to build their autonomy according to the principles of Zapatismo. They are advancing well but are under threat from paramilitary groups, and from fake news. There will also be photos and a brief talk on the current situation. The funds raised with the food will go towards their defense against fake news.
