Campaign «One shawl = one more day for a child Tzotzil
In November 2017, 5000 people belonging to the indigenous Tzotzil community, were forced to flee to the forest and leave their homes because of a land conflict. This conflict, which dates from the 1990 year, opose the inhabitants of two municipalities in the state of Chiapas, including the state of Chenalho. Men, women, children of all ages, older people and newborns suffer daily from the lack of food, care, and warm clothing to face the coldness of winter in this Mexican region.
Our collaborators of the collective “Compa Lucha”, being Tzotziles themselves clamp towards their people and even if the conflict has not yet reached them physically, the friction and the feeling of insecurity are there days after Days. To help this community that needs so much from all of us right now, I decided to launch the campaign:
« 1 châle = 1 jour de plus pour un enfant Tzotzil », which will help us to finance the purchase of foodstuffs, necessities (such as maize and beans), hygiene products or warm clothing. To learn more about this humanitarian crisis (the national media speak little on this subject so the few articles there are in Spanish, sorry)
