More Info

Hello! Eduardo Aragon opened Café Revueltas in the heart of Oaxaca city in Mexico approximately 3 years ago. It is an independent café that seeks to offer people more than just drinks; it seeks to achieve the integration of the international community and show and disseminate alternative ideas. In the cafe there is a small bookstore and a small library with unconventional books on political, philosophical, artistic and cultural topics. Independent films are shown, with reflection and discussion afterward to increase awareness of various societal issues. The café also supports local, independent producers by selling products such as honey, chocolate and mezcal. Eduardo also produces the “Gato Negro” magazine with topics related to history, philosophy, art, culture, politics to disseminate academic information that cannot be easily accessed elsewhere. 

Café Revueltas was just getting established when the pandemic hit. There is the very real possibility it will close as income has decreased considerably. Money raised through this campaign will go towards back rent, future rent, salaries, and other essential café expenses such as supplies and internet service. It is hoped that this campaign will get the café through the worst of the pandemic.

 Any amount is so greatly appreciated and thank you very much in advance!
