Cientos de zapatistas, miembros de diferentes pueblos originarios, personas de diferentes organizaciones sociales y a título individual asistieron este 26 de diciembre al CIDECI, en San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas, a la inauguración del encuentro L@s Zapatistas y las ConCiencias por la Humanidad en el que participan científic@s de diferentes partes del mundo y de distintas disciplinas.

El encuentro, convocado por el Ejército Zapatista de Liberación Nacional (EZLN) desde hace varios meses, es parte de los esfuerzos que l@s zapatistas vienen haciendo por convocar a científic@s y artistas para reflexionar sobre cómo es que desde sus áreas viven la tormenta y cuáles son las estrategias que imaginan, investigan o proponen para enfrentarla.

La inauguración estuvo a cargo del Subcomandante Insurgente Moisés, quien en su intervención señaló que para las y los zapatistas comenzaba un recorrido con quienes, como ellos y ellas, tienen la «gran responsabilidad de defender y salvar al mundo en que vivimos, artes de artistas, ciencias de científicos y los pueblos originarios con los abajos del mundo entero».

Moisés también señaló que la ciencia, en manos de los capitalistas, es usada para «hacer el mal», y que con ella «los ricos se hacen más ricos», al tiempo que la utilizan para matar y destruir. Antes de terminar su discurso, dijo a los asistentes que este 26 de diciembre había que recordar que «nos faltan 46 vidas», en alusión al crimen –todavía impune– contra los estudiantes de Ayotzinapa.

(Español) CompARTiendo Arte Zapatista – Obras zapatistas en San Cristóbal de Las Casas

CompARTiendo Arte Zapatista
Obras colectivas e individuales de zapatistas de los cinco caracoles

La Galería
Andador del Arco del Carmen
Miguel Hidalgo #3
San Cristóbal de Las Casas

Subes las escaleras y de repente. De repente… Los puntos suspensivos los llena cada uno, al ritmo de su corazón y de su pensamiento. Pero algo es cierto: imposible no conmoverse. Conmoverse primero por la belleza, porque no hay corazón que resista tanta belleza. Pero conmoverse también porque en esa belleza, en esas pinturas, en esos bordados, en ese mundo de expresión está la lucha, la perseverancia, el oficio incansable de la esperanza.

A muchos quilómetros de distancia, en alguna ciudad de Brasil, en la casa de un artista que es un verdadero poeta del color, se discutía justo anoche la esperanza, que proviene del verbo “esperanzar”, y no de “esperar”. O sea que la esperanza es movimiento, es acción, es lucha, es el oficio minucioso y porfiado de construir otro mundo posible.

Eso mero es lo que dice el Sup Galeano en su misiva a Juan Villoro cuando escribe que son las artes, y no la política, las que “cavan en lo más profundo del ser humano y rescatan su esencia. Como si el mundo siguiera siendo el mismo, pero con ellas y por ellas pudiéramos encontrar la posibilidad humana entre tantos engranajes, tuercas y resortes rechinando con mal humor. A diferencia de la política, el arte entonces no trata de reajustar o arreglar la máquina. Hace, en cambio, algo más subversivo e inquietante: muestra la posibilidad de otro mundo. […] Como si en lugar de re-etiquetar la máquina, embelleciéndola o afinándola, el arte y la ciencia plantaran, sobre la cromada superficie del sistema, un letrero lacónico y definitorio: ‘CADUCO’, ‘Tiempo Transcurrido’, ‘para continuar viviendo deposite otro mundo’”.

Al tiempo en que comienza el encuentro “L@s zapatistas y las ConCIENCIAS por la Humanidad” en San Cristóbal de Las Casas, se presenta también la exposición de las obras zapatistas exhibidas en el encuentro “CompARTE por la Humanidad” el pasado julio y agosto, en La Galería, en el andador del Arco del Carmen, Miguel Hidalgo 3. Para quienes no pudieron asistir al CompARTE, la exposición “CompARTiendo Arte Zapatista – Obras colectivas e individuales de zapatistas de los cinco caracoles” es imperdible.

CNI and EZLN: Despite Aggressions, the Consultation Continues

laconsultava

DESPITE AGGRESSIONS, THE CONSULTATION CONTINUES
JOINT COMMUNIQUE BY THE NATIONAL INDIGENOUS CONGRESS AND THE ZAPATISTA ARMY FOR NATIONAL LIBERATION.

December 2, 2016.

TO THE PEOPLE OF MEXICO:
TO THE PEOPLES OF THE WORLD:
TO THE FREE MEDIA:

The steps taken by our peoples are great, steps wise when taken in collectivity, and the National Indigenous Congress turns with attentive ears to listen to each other, to the thoughts of we who are the word and the agreements of the 5th CNI. We continue in permanent assembly, traveling to all corners of our country, Mexico.

Our permanent assembly arises from and convenes among the peoples, nations, and tribes of all the languages spoken by the National Indigenous Congress; in large and small assemblies; in meetings of communal councils, in deep reflections by dispersed families; in regional forums and ceremonial spaces. In our collective words, we continue to conclude that it is the time of our peoples, time for the earth to tremble at its core.

The fears of the powerful, the extractive companies, the military, and the narcoparamilitaries are so great that our consultation is being attacked and harassed in the places where our peoples are meeting to discuss and decide the steps to take as the CNI. For that reason, we denounce the following:

CONVOCATION FOR THE SECOND PHASE OF THE FIFTH NATIONAL INDIGENOUS CONGRESS

CONVOCATION FOR THE SECOND PHASE OF THE FIFTH NATIONAL INDIGENOUS CONGRESS

Given that:

1. During the first phase of the Fifth National Indigenous Congress, we analyzed and discussed in depth the different faces of the capitalist war on our peoples. We agreed that it is urgent to halt the displacement, destruction, disrespect, oblivion, and death to which our peoples are subjected and which seek to put an end to our individual and collective resistances and leave our homeland in the hands of the capitalists that govern this country and this world.

2. It is urgent to struggle, to take serious steps and go on the offensive alongside the peoples of the countryside and the city, indigenous and nonindigenous, to construct a new nation from below.

3. We agreed to remain in permanent assembly while carrying out a consultation in all of our geographies on the resolutions reached October 9-14, 2016, with respect to the formation of an Indigenous Governing Council, to be represented by an indigenous woman who is a CNI delegate who will run for the Mexican presidency in the electoral process of 2018.

WE CONVOKE THE SECOND PHASE OF THE FIFTH NATIONAL INDIGENOUS CONGRESS:

To be held December 29, 30, and 31, 2016, and January 1, 2017, in the Zapatista Caracol of Oventik. This Congress will have decisive capacity with regard to the agreements proposed in the first phase of the Fifth National Indigenous Congress as well as with regard to any agreements reached during this second phase. The Congress will be carried out according to the following schedule:

December 29:

a) Arrival and registration of CNI commissions.
b) Opening ceremony.

December 30: Closed plenary session to discuss:

a) The installation of the second phase of the Fifth National Indigenous Congress.
b) The report on the results of the internal consultation by the commission named for this purpose.
c) Evaluation of the results of the internal consultation in work groups.
d) Determination of the paths the CNI will take in the face of capitalist displacement, repression, disrespect, and exploitation, and the strengthening of our resistances and rebellions.
e) The steps to be taken toward the constitution of an Indigenous Governing Council for Mexico.

December 31: The work group discussions continue.

January 1: Plenary Session in the Zapatista Caracol of Oventik.

With regard to the above, and based on the agreements, reflections, and results that come out of the work around the internal consultation that is being carried out in each of the geographies of our peoples, we ask the peoples, nations, and tribes who make up the National Indigenous Congress to name delegates who will discuss and agree upon the steps to take. These delegates should register at the official email address: catedratatajuan@gmail.com.

In addition, as agreed during the general meeting of the Provisional Coordinating Commission held November 26, 2011, at the UNIOS facilities in Mexico City, we ask that the results of the consultation—as acts, minutes, pronunciations, or other forms that reflect the consensuses reached according to the methods of each people, nation, or tribe—be submitted by December 15 at the latest to the email address: consultacni@gmail.com.

The points put forward in this convocation will be discussed in closed sessions December 30 and 31, 2016, in which EXCLUSIVELY CNI delegates may participate. Compañer@s of the National and International Sixth as well as accredited media may participate in the January 1, 2017 plenary, or in any moment that the assembly deems appropriate.

Members of the National and International Sixth, special invitees of the CNI, as well as media who want to participate as observers in the open sessions of the second phase of the Fifth CNI should register beforehand at the email address: cni20aniversario@ezln.org.mx.

Attentively,

EZLN: A Story to Try to Understand

_MG_0304

A STORY TO TRY TO UNDERSTAND

November 17, 2016.

To the national and international Sixth:
To those who sympathize with and support the struggle of originary peoples:
To those who are anticapitalists:

Compañeras, compañeros, compañeroas:
Brothers and sisters:

We wrote this extensive text together, Subcomandante Insurgente Moisés, spokesperson and current head of the EZLN, and I, consulting on certain details with some of the Comandantas and Comandantes of the Zapatista delegation that attended the first phase of the Fifth Congress of the National Indigenous Congress.

Although now, as on other occasions, the task of actually writing it down falls to me, it is Subcomandante Insurgente Moisés who reads, adds or subtracts, approves or rejects not just this text, but all those published as authentic writings by the EZLN. Not infrequently through these writings, I will use the first person singular pronoun. The reason for this will be understood later on. Although the primary audience of the following lines is the Sixth, we have decided to extend it to those who, without being with us or one of us, have identical concerns and similar work. Here goes:

-*-

NEITHER OUR NIGHTMARES

Some years ago, the creativity and ingenuity of some collective of the Sixth produced a phrase which, with the passage of time, was attributed to Zapatismo. As you know, we are against copyright, but we don’t usually claim words or actions that are not ours. However, although not of our authorship, the statement does in part reflect our feelings as Zapatistas.

EZLN: It Is not a Single Person’s Decision

It Is not a Single Person’s Decision

November 2016

For the [l@s] racists:

Well, we’ve been reading and listening to everything you’ve been saying and writing.

We’ve seen all of your mockery, your scorn, the racism that you can no longer hide.

I believe that the compañeros and especially the compañeras of the National Indigenous Congress [CNI] are also reading and listening to what you say.

It’s clear that the CNI was right about what they thought and what they told us, that there is a lot of racism in society.

I imagine you amuse and applaud each other over what a good joke you made with your leftist mockery about the EZLN’s “candigata.”[i]

You celebrate your machismo making fun of indigenous women.

You say that we ‘fucking Indians’ let ourselves be manipulated, are unable to think for ourselves, and go like sheep wherever the shepherd points.

But I think when you say this you are actually looking in the mirror.

CNI and EZLN: Solidarity with the Indigenous Community of Santa María Ostula, Michoacán

Joint Communique from the CNI and the EZLN in Solidarity with the Indigenous Community of Santa María Ostula, Michoacán

November 4, 2016

To the Nahua community of Santa María Ostula, Michoacán:
To the peoples of the world:
To national and international civil society:
To the independent media:

The peoples, nations, and tribes who make up the National Indigenous Congress and the Zapatista Army for National Liberation manifest our profound condemnation of the actions carried out in unison by the bad governments and criminal groups against the Nahua indigenous community of Santa María Ostula, municipality of Aquila, Michoacán, in an attempt to crush their dignified and historic struggle.

These governments were not only complicit in the attack against Cemeí Verdía on May 25, 2015, but in fact freed those directly responsible, Juan Hernández Ramírez (then municipal president of Aquila) and José Antioco Calvillo. They [the government] imprisoned Cemeí Verdía on false charges and murdered the young boy Hidelberto Reyes García.

The bad governments now intend to arrest commander Germán Ramírez, fabricating criminal charges against those who struggle to defend the land and their families. At the same time, we see the regrouping of members of the Knights Templar cartel who are already reorganized and heavily armed in the eastern part of the municipality of Aquila.

Calendar for the 5th Congress of the CNI and the Gathering “Zapatistas and ConSciences for Humanity.”

_MG_0560

ZAPATISTA ARMY FOR NATIONAL LIBERATION
MEXICO

October 26, 2016.

To the invited and attending Scientists of the Gathering “Zapatistas and ConSciences for Humanity”:

To the compañeras, compañeros, compañeroas of the National and International Sixth:

Brothers and sisters:

We send you greetings. We write to inform you of the following:

First: Per instructions from the National Indigenous Congress, which at the moment is consulting with the originary peoples, barrios, tribes, and nations throughout Mexico on the proposal made during the first phase of the Fifth Congress, we inform you that the permanent assembly of the CNI will be reinstated December 29, 2016, at CIDECI-UNITIERRA in San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas.

There the CNI will hold roundtable sessions on December 30 and 31 of this year. During these sessions, or before then if the CNI so chooses, the results of the consultation will be made known. On January 1, 2017, the plenary assembly will take place in Oventik, Chiapas, Mexico, and any agreements necessary will be made there.

The compañeras and compañeros of the originary peoples, barrios, tribes, and nations who make up the National Indigenous Congress inform us that they have financial difficulties that impede their travel to this meeting, and so they request solidarity donations from the national and international Sixth, as well as from any honest people who want to support them in this way. To offer this support, the compas of the CNI ask that people communicate directly with them at the following email: info@congresonacionalindigena.org. From there they will explain where and how to send support.
