Our message is one of struggle and resistance."


Musica De Fuego in association with Schools for Chiapas / Escuelas para Chiapas present "An Evening with Peter Brown" at two Inner West venues.....

1. Jura Books - Sunday 3rd November @ 3pm
440 Parramatta Road, Petersham

2. The Red Rattler Theatre - Wed 13th November 7.30pm
6 Faversham Street Marrickville

Schools for Chiapas founding member Peter Brown is coming to Sydney, armed with a wealth of knowledge and experience of working with the Zapatista communities of Chiapas, Mexico since their uprising in 1994. He is coming to Australia to garner support for Zapatista education including schools, ecological agriculture, heath, and producers' cooperatives.

Brown's immersion in and involvement with the Zapatista movement has allowed him to bear witness to incredible stories of resistance. Some inspirational developments are currently occurring in Chiapas, as the Zapatistas cement their autonomous existence within the international community. This is a rare opportunity to hear about the Zapatista struggle and liberation throughout the last two decades from a man who has been involved with the movement from a grassroots level for many years.
