CASA – Colectivos de Apoyo, Solidaridad, y Apoyo

Colectivos de Apoyo, Solidaridad, y Apoyo

CASA hosts and educates activists about social justice issues in Oaxaca and Chiapas.

We share lessons we learn from the resistance movements in Mexico with our home communities. We publish news and analysis in our monthly newsletter, host and provide workshops for short-term solidarity delegations, and coordinate speaking events.

Mission: CASA, Colectivos de Apoyo, Solidaridad y Acción, responds to the call for international solidarity with grassroots indigenous and campesino movements by maintaining a center in Mexico for education, support, and activism in Oaxaca. We seek to further social justice and sustainable development in Mexico and the United States through education, network building and facilitating first hand experience of globalization and human rights issues. We collaborate with other non-governmental organizations and local communities according to the needs, demands, and methodologies they express.

Praise

Teaching Rebellion presents an inspiring tapestry of voices from the recent popular uprisings in Oaxaca. The reader is embraced with the cries of anguish and triumph, indignation and overwhelming joy, from the heart of this living rebellion.” –Peter Gelderloos, author of How Nonviolence Protects the State

“These remarkable people tell us of the historic teachers’ struggle for justice in Oaxaca, Mexico, and of the larger, hemispheric battle of all Indigenous people to end five hundred years of racism and repression.”
–Jennifer Harbury, author of Truth, Torture and the American Way

” During their marches and protests, whenever the Oaxaca rebels sighted a reporter, they would chant: ‘Press, if you have any dignity, the people of Oaxaca demand that you tell the truth.’ Teaching Rebellion answers that demand, with ample dignity, providing excellent context to understand the 2006 uprising and extensive and eloquent interviews with the participants themselves; an amazing read and an important contribution to the literature of contemporary rebellion.”
 –John Gibler, author of Mexico Unconquered: Chronicles of Power and Revolt
