Join the December 2001 Caravan/Construction Brigade to Chiapas

The indigenous citizens of Guadelupe Tepeyac,
Mexico were forced to flee when the Army established a "temporary" base in their community in 1995. The Army finally left this past April. IFCO/Pastors for Peace is responding to a call for volunteers to help rebuild the homes and community buildings in the village.

The indigenous citizens of Guadelupe Tepeyac,

The Army finally left this past April.


IFCO/Pastors for Peace is responding to a call for
volunteers to help rebuild the homes and community
buildings in the village.


We will travel to Chiapas with aid for other
communities as well as construction materials and
construction workers for Guadelupe Tepeyac.


Construction experience is helpful, but not required; Spanish fluency is helpful, but not required.


What IS required is commitment to the struggle for
peace and justice and dignity.
