The Edinburgh-Chiapas Solidarity Group is one of many groups across the world which support the Zapatistas in their struggle and is part of the ‘UK Zapatista Network‘. Our main purpose is to raise awareness of the Zapatista struggle and to give practical help wherever possible. 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.
To get in contact with the group email or follow us on Facebook.

EZLN Letter to Doña Emilia Aurora Sosa Marín
"We got the news just a few hours ago. We don’t know how long it will take for these lines to reach you, but we know that regardless of the date, you will be able to read in these words the collective embrace that we send you. That is because here we also feel the pain and sorrow of the death of Don Félix Serdán Nájera, honorary officer in our Zapatista Army for National Liberation, this past February 22 in the early morning hours."
