In a corn field in the Mexican state of Chiapas, Salma Palamo Diaz wears a traditional tzotzil skirt. The Tzotzil are an indigenous Maya people of the central Chiapas highlands in southern Mexico.
Indigenous Muslims in Mexico blend their indigenous ways of life with their Islamic faith.

Zapatistas need solidarity after coffee harvest burned!
The Zapatistas need your solidarity after targeted attacks by government-linked paramilitaries destroyed much of this year’s coffee harvest.
On August 22, 2020, the ORCAO paramilitary organization looted and burned two Zapatista coffee warehouses in Cuxuljá, Chiapas. This is the latest in an accelerating series of attacks on the Zapatista project since the current administration of Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) took office.
Many of you will remember that in 2017 as Trump took office, the Zapatistas sent four tons of their coffee harvest to migrant and other communities in struggle in the United States as an organizing resource. Now we need to organize our own coffee solidarity effort — not only to help recover the cost of the lost harvest, but to show there is widespread solidarity with the Zapatista project.
The Zapatistas have been one of few voices to denounce AMLO’s purportedly “progressive” government for doubling down on previous administrations’ socially and environmentally destructive capitalist megaprojects. These policies have dispossessed hundreds of thousands of their land and resources and made Indigenous and other communities resisting such projects the target of state and paramilitary repression. It is important to note that one of the principal investors in these megaprojects is the world’s largest financial firm, BlackRock.
Support the Zapatista project, a project that has not only created a horizon of dignified self-organization that has inspired all of us, but also shown profound and far-reaching solidarity with our own struggles. Solidarity means acting from the knowledge that in the face of destruction and dispossession, our best resource is each other!

This place blew me away. Up to this point on our trip down the river in MX, the water was shallow and clear but when we reach this waterfall everything changed. The blue water that was cascading down the falls was stunning. We swam in the pools and danced in the falls. Then I took out the drone and saw the river above and my jaw dropped.

Temple of Santiago, Chiapas (est. 1564).
The church was abandoned during the 1773–76 smallpox epidemic. After its abandonment, the church was never used for ecclesiastical purposes again. In 1966, the Nezahualcoyotl Reservoir was completed, and the Temple of Santiago was completely submerged. It reappears periodically, when the reservoir water levels drop, the first recorded such time being in 2002.

Me vio como se mira al través de un cristal o del aire o de nada. Y entonces supe: yo no estaba allí ni en ninguna otra parte ni había estado nunca ni estaría. Y fui como el que muere en la epidemia, sin identificar, y es arrojado a la fosa común.

En qué lugar, en dónde, a qué deshoras 
me dirás te amo? Esto es urgente

Debo interpretar tu silencio, ahora si inapelablemente, como una falta total de interés y amor. Y como yo ya no encuentro estas dos cosas donde siempre las encontré antes, en mí, no sé en realidad qué jueguito jugamos...
