“El Cambalache” Sparks Exchange of Goods, Skills and Expertise in Chiapas, Mexico

El Cambalache is a moneyless economy project located in San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas and is made by and for women and everyone who we know. In El Cambalache everything has the same value. Here people exchange things they no longer need for things, skills, knowledge and mutual help that people want to share. El Cambalache was founded in 2015 and is based on anti-systemic and anti-capitalist values for local social movements.

For more information see their documentary: Inter-Change Value (2016)

In July and August 2023, El Cambalanche will be hosting a workshop on Liberatory Methods Investigating and Generating Non-capitalist, Anti-colonial Social Power.
