Midnight Notes Goes To School
Report From the Zapatista Escuelita
Midnight Notes Collective

Out of the Mexican southeast, a new society is emerging,
one based on communal lands, recuperation of indigenous
culture, gender equality, cooperative self-defense,
organic agriculture, and food, shelter, health and education for
all. This historic project to build Zapatista Autonomous Good
Governance — separate from the Mexican state and the capitalist
market — has engaged hundreds of indigenous communities
across Mexico’s Chiapas province, which stretches across terrain
the size of Rhode Island, from mountain rain forests to pastoral
valleys to lowland jungle. This Zapatista model of Autonomous
Governance has slowly emerged as a beacon of hope across the
hemisphere, and stands in stark contrast to the horrors offered
by low-waged maquiladora development, the narco-economy,
the brutalism of Latin American urban life and the US/UN neoliberal
model exemplified by the military occupation of Haiti.
