AT-Work (the appropriate technology working group) is
looking for groups interested in hosting stops on a speaking
tour in April. The tour will travel the West Coast from San
Francisco to the Seattle area.
The speakers will be two representatives of the Frente
Mixteco-Zapoteco Bi-nacional, a group representing Mixtec
and Zapotec natives living in California, north-western Mexican
states and their native Oaxaca. They will speak on the
subjects of native rights, farmworker rights, Zapotec and
Mixtec cultural affirmation, and on the subject of
environmentally sustainable development in Oaxaca.
The goals of this tour are to:
1. Promote alternative agricultural projects being
carried out by the Frente in Oaxaca.
2. Promote human rights, native rights, and farmworker
rights in this context, including a discussion of the
current situations in Mexico.
3. Provide an opportunity for the Frente Mixteco-
Zapateco to make direct contact with groups and
individuals interested in the environment, rural
development, native rights, Latin America, and
4. Recruit technically skilled volunteers for this and
other projects supported by AT-Work.
