Autonomy and human rights in the Indigenous Communities of southern Mexico with Pablo Obando, Communications Director of the Fray Bartolomé Human Rights Center and Mexico Solidarity Network representative, Tony Nelson.

Pablo will speak on the human rights situation in Chiapas, Mexico, the Fray Bartolome Centerʼs work, and the role of international solidarity. The Center has been widely recognized for accompanying indigenous communities under attack, documenting abuses, and defending cases in court. It has recently been increasingly threatened byparamilitary organizations for this work.

Presented by the Mexico Solidarity Network, organized by the Center for Convivial Research and Autonomy with Universidad de la Tierra Califas and SJSU's Xicana/o Graduate Council.

*presentation will be in Spanish with English interpretation*
