Chapter Summary

This appendix presents Rosalinda Santiz Diaz speech in South Africa at the World Court of Women Against War. In Chiapas and all over Mexico the indigenous people have been exploited for the last 508 years. From 1994 on, young indigenous women have been fighting, so that our words are heard, that we follow our hearts and thinking. During these years a lot of us have suffered from persecution, militarization, paramilitary groups, hunger, death threats, sexual violations, forced displacements as consequences of the so called Low Intensity Warfare. One demands the right to own land, to have good education, a good health service and housing with dignity. One also demands the right to participate in communal and municipal Assemblies and the right to take communal and municipal responsibilities as part of the authorities.

Keywords: militarization; Rosalinda Santiz Diaz; South Africa
