This article discusses the role that social psychology can play in the face of violence problems and describes the process followed by an NGO (Non Governmental Organization) and a group of Indian peasants in the creation of a human rights movement in the Northern Highlands of Puebla. The narrative presents the most significant events that started the movement, the initial training, organizational and expansion phases. It describes the progress in observation, perception and reflection skills, as well as how the peasant group gradually comes to assume decision making. There have been successes and failures, yet the movement definitely tends toward self-reliance.
