JUSTICE FOR CHIAPAS!

The FrayBa Center has been widely recognized for accompanying indigenous communities under attack, documenting abuses, and defending cases in court. It has recently been increasingly threatened by paramilitary organizations for this work.

The event is hosted by the Radio Autonomía Collective (Oakland) and coordinated by Tony Nelson of the Mexico Solidarity Network.
