Zapatista Autonomous Rebellious Education System of National Liberation
In this website, we present the education project of the indigenous people of the Higlands region of Chiapas, in this way we understand that education can come and be organized from the heart of our people. To educate is to learn, which is to say, "educate learning." We can educate with the students –who educate us- so that those of us who are in favor of life can educate ourselves mutually and in that way construct those many worlds that we all dream of. We can say that we know how to educate those who educate us, that is why our school is for the entire world and is why we say "for everyone everything, nothing for us."
