Further Details
Abstract Indigenous communities in Mexico have not achieved the desired response in meeting their demands and their rights; nevertheless, in recent decades have shaped organizations in which, through various collective actions, are aspects that encourage political participation and positive conditions for retaining the current situation. Such is the case for the National Association for Indigenous Autonomy Plural, ANIPA, which proposes alternatives to resolve the hardships that afflict the peoples. This arises in the context of the conference “500 years of the Discovery of America.” It is with the emergence of the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN) in 1994, which achieves a substantial ANIPA dissemination of political demand flying indigenous communities as the recognition, respect and autonomy of indigenous peoples. ANIPA has participated in various forums and harmony between the executive and legislative branches and indigenous organizations, which allowed him together various structures, giving rise to what is now ANIPA-National Policy Association, in order to continue creating opportunities for expression and interaction between them. ANIPA has decided to seek peaceful means and dialogue to achieve the solution to indigenous demands. ANIPAAPN is not in sight as a political party but as a new democratic path that facilitate the integration of indigenous communities in the political life of the country, proposing the construction of a multiethnic state and a new multicultural society.
