From Chiapas to California…One World Where Many Worlds Fit
February 4 - 11th, 2005

The Chiapas Support Committee is pleased to announce a California tour with:

Ramon Peñate Díaz,
La Red de Defensores Comunitarios por los Derechos Humanos (the Network of Community Defenders for Human Rights),
Chiapas, Mexico

And

Miguel Pickard,
Center for Economic and Political Research for Community Action (CIEPAC), Chiapas, Mexico


Ramon Peñate Díaz is a human rights defender from the Chol-speaking community of Emiliano Zapata in the municipality of Tila, where the Mexican Army camp located within the community has caused violations of human rights and indigenous cultural values. Mr. Peñate Díaz will speak about his work with the Community Defenders Network, which is composed of human rights defenders from indigenous and campesino communities who participate in legal training and then return to their communities to advise the residents on human rights issues and to document incidents affecting human rights. http://www.defensorescomunitarios.org

Miguel Pickard is an investigator with CIEPAC, a non-profit research group which explores economic and political realities throughout Mexico, Central America and Latin America, such as the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) and the increased militarization and privatization of natural resources. Miguel recently received a Project Censored award for his article on the Plan Puebla Panama.
