The Women of Candelaria (2020)

Las Mujeres de Candelaria (2020) bilingual span/eng subs

“The farming community of Candelaria, Chiapas, which includes many Zapatista sympathizers, has been under siege by an armed group invading their lands. As the community organized to protect their fields, they sought help from DESMI (a group that promotes autonomy, agroecology, and women’s rights). DESMI offered workshops to the women, and from this seed, the women began to organize autonomously, transforming their daily lives. Now, they say, they can no longer live with a boss who makes all the decision. In this short they prepare chorizo and talk about their transformation”.
