We have a charity!
The profits made on saturday will be donated to the Chiapas Indians in Southern Mexico, who are struggling to support their families and their livelihood, since the Mexican government does not take sufficient care of this remote part of the country. The Indians have to build all their schools and hospitals themselves and for this they need support from the outside world.
Maybe some of you will have heard about the Zapatista movement uprising, which can be seen as one the first antiglobalists who stepped up for their rights when their govenment did not act on their issues. We at Rebel Up! feel that we need to support these rebelling indians in their righteous cause.
At the moment a hospital is being built nearby La Realidad, which is situated in the autonome area that is not controlled by the Mexican army anymore. Funding is seriously needed for the construction of this hospital and that’s the chosen route our money will follow. This project is coordinated by Grassroots Projects, please scrobble their website for more info. We hope to see you saturday.
Let’s go latino-coustic for now!
