Chapter Summary

This chapter main objective is to contribute to the transformation of relations of discrimination between genders, and along with this work toward the construction of social justice, democracy, and autonomy. Its means of work is through analysis, reflection, education and formation in diverse areas of organized action of Indigenous women of Chiapas (Kinal Antzetik document). Kinal Antzetik, is an NGO whose name means Womens Land in the Mayan language of Tzeltal. In 2002, when speaking with Merit, another original member of Kinal, she shared her sense of accompaniment within Kinal and her work in collaboration with Yolanda. For women, so called low intensity warfare (GBI) manifests itself in harassment, beating, rape, and the utilization of prostitutes as informants. Through informational bulletins and denouncements of government actions that were sent worldwide, Kinal informed the network and rallied support for holding powerful actors accountable.
