Services for an Alternative Education (EDUCA) has now celebrated its twentieth anniversary. The organization began after the armed insurrection of the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN) in Chiapas, and it has been following two major aspects in its work: the promotion of citizens’ participation in Oaxaca and human rights, particularly of indigenous peoples. Using the slogan “20 years of sowing social processes,” the civil organization this year will review what it has sown and what it has reaped.
EDUCA members have affirmed that “20 years ago, we raised our voice to give reason to our hope. Today we continue firmly with that conviction. It is true that 20 years are not many; they are in fact a mere breath in time, but at the same time that span could be a life full of struggle. Thank you!”
