Acteal, Chiapas

3 10 2009

From Cedici we went to visit Las Abejas, an organization that works to support the indigenous rights and autonomy of indigenous and human rights of the people in Acteal.  We arrived in a very foggy highland and walked down into their village.  We congragated in a small cement auditorium that was actually the roof of a tomb where laid buried the bodies of the villagers that had been massacred by the Mexican Army.

We layed the staffs down on this tomb and sang songs and exchanged cultures with the people.

Check out this wonderful blog entry from one of our friends from CEDICI, Charlotzi
