Objectives of our work

SIPAZ

  • Accompanies organizational processes in defense of human rights and is physically and visibly present in the moments and places of highest tension so as to try to prevent repression and violence, such that threatened persons and organizations can continue their work to promote peace and human rights.
  • Exposes the causes and consequences of, as well as responses to, socio-political conflict in Chiapas as well as in Oaxaca and Guerrero, with the intent of raising awareness and mobilizing actors at local, national, and international levels to seek out non-violent solutions.
  • Works to strengthen the capacities of local groups, social agents—female and male—who work in defense of human rights and toward transformation of their conflicts in order to achieve a positive peace, and to promote and strengthen spaces for coming together and movement building.
