Chapter Summary

This chapter begins with the story of Rosalinda, former president of Jolom Mayaetik, meeting with World Bank officials in March, 2000, in North Carolina. It provides a brief overview of the impact of the World Bank development policies on Mexico and Chiapas and resistance to it by the Zapatistas and Civil Society in Mexico and North American allied organizations. The chapter focuses on the response of Civil Society by examining the philosophy, analysis, and work of the grassroots womens organizations, Kinal Antzetik and Jolom Mayaetik, in Chiapas, Mexico. It reviews other resistance strategies to neoliberalism that are developing globally and which link to the solidarity marketing strategy of Jolom Mayaetik. Rosalindas analysis, millennial practice, and contemporary economic apartheid connect the economic justice movements and Jolom Mayaetiks call for a life with dignity.

Keywords: Chiapas; civil society mobilization; economic justice; Mexico; Rosalindas analysis; social justice; world bank development policies
