"The process of globalization of
markets caused a grave crisis
in the countryside of Mexico,
that has borne down terribly
all of this last decade.
Colera re-emerged in the 1990’s
after having disappeared entirely
in the 20th Century.
Dengue fever too, has made its debut;
these scourges are markers for poverty.
Caught up in a very difficult struggle
for the physical survival
of oneself and one’s family,
we, the women of Tecalpulco
still aim every day on this earth
at a transcendental purpose.
The bow, with which that arrow is aimed,
in Mexico, that bow is called : faith
The Artesanas Campesinas initiative was born
in response to the extremely difficult
and dangerous situation the artisan communities
of Tecalpulco discovered ourselves in
after the men had mostly disappeared
into the US illegal labor market scene
and the women and children for the most part
were left to manage the best that we were able."
