Convocation to the Second National Assembly of the Indigenous Governing Council and the Peoples of the National Indigenous Congress


National Indigenous Congress
CONVOCATION

Given that:

First: The initiative of the National Indigenous Congress (CNI) to form the Indigenous Governing Council (CIG) and put forward its spokeswoman, Marichuy, as Mexican presidential candidate has reached yet another phase. The first phase was marked by the decision of the Fifth National Indigenous Congress, on its twentieth anniversary in October of 2016, to hold a referendum on that initiative with all of its peoples and communities. The second phase consisted of carrying out that internal CNI referendum, between October and December of 2016, on the formation of the CIG and the designation of its spokeswoman. The third phase culminated in the Constitutive Assembly of the CIG and the naming, by consensus of that assembly, of María de Jesús Patricio Martínez as CIG spokeswoman in May of 2017. The fourth phase was made up of the signature-gathering effort for our spokeswoman Marichuy, a process that we concluded this year. Our process of resistance, rebellion, and organization, however, continues.

Second: Our path continues. In contrast to previous phases, there are now far more originary peoples walking together with us, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, there are more people, groups, collectives, and organizations seeking solutions by and for ourselves, solutions that we know will never come from above.

300 Part III: A Challenge, Real Autonomy, An Answer, Multiple Proposals, and a Few Anecdotes about the Number 300

300
Part III:
A Challenge, Real Autonomy, An Answer, Multiple Proposals, and a Few Anecdotes about the Number 300

So what’s next?

We’ll have to swim against the current, but that’s nothing new for us Zapatistas.

We want to reiterate—and we have consulted this with the Zapatista communities—that we oppose any and every overseer. We’re not just talking about those who insist they will administrate properly and repress correctly—as in the current proposal to combat corruption and improve security via impunity—but also those whose intentions for hegemony and imposed homogeneity lie just below their vanguardist dreams.

We will not exchange our history, our pain, our rage, and our struggle for a “progressive” conformity which is currently closing ranks behind its leader. We don’t forget, even when everybody else does, that we are Zapatistas.

With regard to our autonomy and the discussion that’s going on about whether it will be recognized or not, we make the following distinction: there is official autonomy, and there is real autonomy. Official autonomy is recognized by law, and this is its logic: “If you have an autonomous system and I legally recognize it, then your autonomy begins to depend on my law and not on your actual autonomous practices. When election season rolls around, you’ll have to support us, voting and promoting the vote for our party, because if another party takes office they’ll undo that law that protects you.” In that logic, we become political party peons, just as has happened to social movements all over the world. The actual function and defense of autonomy ceases to matter; the only thing that matters is what is recognized by the law. The struggle for freedom is in effect transformed into a struggle for the legal recognition of struggle.

-*-

We talked to our “bosses,” that is, the communities that determine our path, our route, and our destiny. We see what is coming through their perspective. We asked them: “if we take this position (what we believe is necessary), what will happen?”

And this is how we answered ourselves: “we’ll be alone and isolated in our position. People will say that we’re irrelevant—that we have placed ourselves outside the great revolution, the supposed fourth transformation, this new religion or whatever you want to call it—and we’ll have to swim against the current yet again.”

But being alone and isolated is nothing new for us. Then we asked ourselves: are we afraid to be alone in what we believe? Are we afraid to hold fast to our convictions and to struggle for them? Are we afraid that the people who previously supported us will turn against us? Are we afraid to refuse to give up, give in, or sell out? We asked ourselves each of these questions and we came to the conclusion that what we were asking was if we were afraid to be Zapatistas.

We aren’t afraid to be Zapatistas and that’s exactly what we are going to continue to be. That was what we asked ourselves, and that was our answer.

We think that, alongside all of you (the support networks), and with everything against us—because we know that throughout this process you didn’t have the support of the media or the masses, nor could you count on pay or popularity (we know you had to use your own money to carry out your work)—we organized ourselves around a collective of originary peoples and a small, brown woman, the color of the earth, to denounce a predatory system and defend our conviction and our struggle.
We’re looking for other people who aren’t afraid. That’s why we want to ask you (the support networks), are you afraid? You decide. If you’re afraid, we’ll look somewhere else.

-*-

We think that we should continue to walk closely with the originary peoples.

Maybe some of you as support networks still think that what you’re doing is supporting the originary peoples. As time goes by you’re going to see that it’s just the opposite: they will support you through their experience and their forms of organization. That is, you will learn, because if anyone is an expert in surviving a storm it’s the originary peoples. They’ve had everything thrown at them and here they still are—here we still are.

But we also think, and compañer@s we want to make this very clear: that won’t be enough. We will have to incorporate into our horizon of struggle all of our own realities and the pain and rage they hold. We will have to move toward a new phase of this process: the construction of a Council that includes the struggles of all of the oppressed, marginalized, disappeared, and murdered, the struggles of political prisoners, of women who have been attacked and harassed, of children who have been prostituted, of all the calendars and geographies that delineate a map that is impossible within the laws of probability and illegible to polls and votes: the contemporary map of rebellion and resistance across the planet.

If we—all of us together—are going to challenge the laws of probability that say there is little to no chance that we will succeed, if we are going to challenge the polls and the millions of votes and the world-in-numbers that Power pulls out to try to demoralize us and make us give up, then we have to make the Council [Indigenous Governing Council, CIG] bigger. At this point this is just a thought that we want to share with you—that we think it is important to build a Council that neither absorbs nor annuls differences, but rather gives each of us the chance to be with others [otros, otras, otroas] who share the same struggle. This is why we think the Council should not be limited by a geography imposed by borders and flags, but should aim to become international.

What we are proposing is that the Indigenous Governing Council cease to be only indigenous and only national in scope.

To that end, as Zapatistas we put forward the following proposals, in addition to the ones already suggested during this gathering, to be consulted with all of your home collectives and organizations:

1. To reaffirm our support for the National Indigenous Congress and the Indigenous Governing Council.

2. To create and maintain open and transparent forms of communication among all of us who have come together on this path of the Indigenous Governing Council and its spokeswoman.

3. To begin or continue our analysis and evaluation of the reality in which we live, and to share with each other these analyses and evaluations as well as our subsequent proposals for coordinated action.

4. Without ceasing our support for the originary peoples, we propose to double down on the work of the CIG Support Networks in order to open our collective heart to all of the rebellions and resistances that emerge and persevere wherever we might be, in the countryside or the city, without regard for borders.

5. To begin or continue the struggle to grow both the demands and dimensions of the Indigenous Governing Council with the goal of extending it beyond originary peoples to include workers of the countryside and city and all of those who have been discarded or marginalized but who have their own history and struggle, that is, their own identity.

6. To begin or continue the analysis and discussion toward the creation of a Coordination or Federation of Networks which avoids any kind of centralized or vertical command and which spares no effort in building solidarity, support, and sisterhood/brotherhood among its participants.

7. Finally, to hold in December of this year an international gathering of networks—we propose that for now we call ourselves the Network of Resistance and Rebellion (and then the name of each collective), but it could be whatever we decide to name ourselves. At that point we will have had the chance to hear, analyze, and evaluate what the National Indigenous Congress and the Indigenous Governing Council decide and propose during their meeting in October, and we will also have the results of the consultation process to be undertaken as a result this meeting we are in right now. We would like to offer one of the Zapatista Caracoles as a location for that upcoming meeting, if you are all in agreement.

Our proposal, then, is not only for the originary peoples, but for everyone [todoas, todas, todos] who resist and rebel in each and every corner of the world, and who challenge every rule, law, mold, dictate, number, and percentage imposed on us.

First anecdote: During the first days of 1994, the intelligence services of the Mexican army estimated that the self-designated “ee-zee-el-en” consisted of “only” 300 transgressors of the law.
Second anecdote: That same year, as Ernesto Zedillo Ponce de León and Esteban Moctezuma Barragán plotted the betrayal and ambush to be carried out against us in February of 1995,i the Nexos group (dedicated at that time to singing the praises of Salinas de Gortari and Zedillo), exclaimed, out of growing frustration and in so many words by Héctor Aguilar Camín, “Why don’t we just obliterate them? There are only 300 of them!”

Third anecdote: Information from the registration table at the Gathering of Support Networks for the CIG and its spokeswoman, held at the Zapatista Caracol “Whirlwind of our Words” August 3-5, 2018: “attendees: 300”.

Fourth anecdote: Profits of the 300 most powerful corporations on the planet: we have no idea, but it could be 300, or any other number, followed by a shitload of zeros, and ending with “millions of dollars”.

Fifth anecdote: “encouraging” quantities and percentages:

The quantitative difference between 300 and 30,113,483 (the number of votes López Obrador the candidate received according to the INE): thirty million, one hundred and thirteen thousand, one hundred and eighty-three.

300 is 0.00099623% of those more than 30 million votes

300 is 0.00052993% of the total votes cast (56,611,027)

300 is 0.00033583% of the total number of registered voters (89,332,032)

300 is 0.00022626% of the total Mexican population (132,593,000, minus the 7 women who, on average, are murdered daily. Over the past decade, a girl, young woman, adult woman, or elderly woman has been murdered, on average, every 4 hours).

300 is 0.00003012% of the population of the American Continent (996,000,000 in 2017)

The probability of destroying the capitalist system is 0.000003929141%, which is the percentage of the world population (7,635,255,247 at 7:54pm on August 20, 2018), represented by the number 300 (that is, of course, if those supposed 300 people don’t give up, give in, or sell out).

Oh I know, not even the tortoise beating Achilles[ii] would be consolation.

What about a caracol?[iii]…

La Bruja Escarlata?[iv]…

The cat-dog?…

All right, enough of that. What keeps us Zapatistas awake is not the challenge presented by this infinitesimal probability of triumph, but the question of what the world that follows, the one that begins to emerge from the still smoking ashes of this system, will be like.

What will be its ways?

Will its colors speak?

What will its theme song be? (Huh? “The Girl with the Red Bow?”[v] No way).

What will be the lineup of Defensa Zapatista’s (finally) full team? Can Esperanza Zapatista’s teddy bear join the lineup and team up with Pedrito? Will they let Pablito wear his cowboy hat and Amado Zapatista, his crocheted helmet? Why doesn’t the damned referee blow his whistle on the Cat-dog who is so obviously off-sides?

Above all, and most importantly, how will that new world dance?

This is why, when we Zapatistas are asked, “What’s next?” Well…how can I explain it? We don’t answer on the spot, it takes us a bit. The truth is, you’ll see, that dancing a new world is less problematic than imagining it.

Sixth anecdote: Oh, you thought the thing about “300”vi was because of the film by that title and the Battle of Thermopylae, and you were ready to get dressed up like Leonidas or Gorgo (to each their own) and start shouting “This is Sparta!” while decimating the “immortal” troops of the Persian King Xerxes? Man, haven’t I been saying? Those Zapatistas, always watching another movie. Or, worse yet, watching and analyzing reality. What can you do…

That’s all…for now.

300, Part II: A Continent as a Backyard, a Country as a Cemetery, Pensamiento Único as a Government Program, and a Small, Very Small, Ever So Small Rebellion.

300.
Part II:
A Continent as a Backyard, a Country as a Cemetery, Pensamiento Únicoi as a Government Program, and a Small, Very Small, Ever So Small Rebellion.

From our analysis of the world we move to the level of the continent.

If we look above…

We see the examples of Ecuador, Brazil and Argentina, where supposedly progressive governments have not only been removed from power but prosecuted, and the governments that have taken their place are ones that have been trained as good overseers—obedient to capital, that is—ready to take on a realignment of the world plantation (though, to be fair, even in their cynicism they’re still pretty clumsy). Take Temer in Brazil, Macri in Argentina, and that guy in Ecuador who was supposed to be good because he was chosen by the now-persecuted Correa (a man of the “citizen’s revolution”, “a leftist” according to the progressive intelligentsia who backed him) but who, it turns out, is actually on the right: Lenin Moreno (yeah, paradoxically his name is Lenin).

Under the watchful eye of the State that has become the policeman of the region—Colombia—threats are issued, destabilization efforts are undertaken and plans are made for provocations that would justify “peace force” invasions. In all of South America, we see a return to the brutal times of the Colonies, now characterized by a “new” extractivism—really just the same ancestral plunder of natural resources, categorized as “raw materials”—but endorsed and promoted among the progressive governments of the region as “Left extractivism”. This is supposed to be something like a Leftist capitalism or a capitalist Left, or who knows what it’s supposed to be because it destroys and dispossesses just the same, only it’s for a “good cause” (??). Any criticism or movement that opposes the destruction of the originary peoples’ territories is written off as having been “promoted by Empire” or “backed by the right-wing”, among other equivalents to being “a conspiracy by the mafia of Power.” In sum, the “backyard” of Capital extends across the continent all the way to Cape Horn.

But if we look below…

We see resistances and rebellions, first and foremost among the originary peoples. It would be unfair to try to name them all since there’s always a risk of leaving some out, but their identities are clear in their struggles. There where the machine encounters resistance to its predatory advance, rebellion dresses in colors so old they’re new again and speaks “strange” languages. Displacement, also disguised as the leasing of lands, tries to impose its commodity logic on those who refer to the Earth as “Mother.” These resistances are accompanied by groups, collectives, and organizations which, while perhaps not themselves composed of originary peoples, share the same effort and the same destiny, that is to say, the same heart. That is why they suffer insults, persecution, imprisonment and, not infrequently, death.

300, Part I: A Plantation, a World, a War, Slim Chances.

Words of the EZLN’s Sixth Commission at the Gathering of Support Networks for the Indigenous Governing Council (CIG) and its spokeswoman

(Expanded version)

Given time restrictions, we were unable to present these thoughts in full during the gathering. We promised you the full version, and we include the full transcription here, including the parts that were not read at the gathering. You’re welcome. Don’t mention it.

300
Part I:
A Plantation, a World, a War, Slim Chances.

August, 2018.

Subcomandante Insurgente Galeano:

Good morning, thank you for coming, for accepting our invitation and for sharing your words with us.

We are going to begin by explaining our way of doing analysis and evaluation.

We start by analyzing what is happening in the world, then move to what is happening at the continental level, then to what is happening in this country, then to a regional and finally to a local level. From there, we develop an initiative and begin to move back up from a local level to a regional level, then to the national, the continental, and finally the global level.

We think that capitalism is the dominant system at the global level. In order to explain this system both to ourselves and to others, we use the image of a plantation. I’m going to ask Subcomandante Insurgente Moisés to explain this part.

-*-

Subcomandante Insurgente Moisés:

Compañeros and compañeras: we interviewed our own compañeros and compañeras who are our great-grandfathers and great-grandmothers, some of whom are still alive. The following is what they told us and what they helped us understand: how the rich, the capitalists, want to turn the whole world into their plantation.

(Español) Desde el Festival CompArte Zapatista: “Un llamado a tod@s los que se rebelan en todos los rincones del mundo”

Altamirano Chiapas. 6 de agosto. Inicia en el caracol zapatista de “Morelia”, el festival: CompARTE POR LA VIDA Y LA LIBERTAD “, Píntale caracolitos a los malos gobiernos pasados, presentes y futuros”, convocado por las Bases de Apoyo del EZLN.

Del 6 al 9 de agosto, en el caracol ubicado en el municipio de Altamirano, se podrán apreciar a musiquer@s, teatrer@s, bailador@s, pintor@s, escultor@s, declamador@s, etceter@s, de las comunidades zapatistas en resistencia y rebeldía, comunicó la Comisión Sexta del EZ. De igual forma se presentarán manifestaciones artísticas de asistentes nacionales e internacionales.

Este 6 de agosto, en el templete principal del Caracol de Morelia, se estarán presentando del caracol zapatista de Oventic, región Altos, las obras de teatro: “Los siete principios del Mandar Obedeciendo”; “la destrucción Ambiental y social” y “La nueva forma de Autogobernarnos”.

Del caracol zapatista de Roberto Barrios, amenizarán con música de mariachi los grupos: Las cinco estrellas; Orgullo Zapatista; La Voz del Pueblo; Jóvenes Rebeldes y Renacimiento Maya Chol. También se presentarán l@s solistas Chántee; El Rebelde; Roy Ser; Voz de las Mujeres; Valero y Mi Raíz. La música de trío no puede hacer falta por lo que este lunes se escucharán a los grupos: La flor y Semilla de la libertad. En este inicio del festival se podrá disfrutar del duo “Camino de la vida” y de l@s intérpretes de música Rap: Por la vida y estoy Aquí.

Otra obra de teatro que invita a la reflexión es la que presentarán Jóvenes y Jóvenas del caracol anfitrión, denominada: “Trabajar para vivir o Trabajar para Morir?.

Del Caracol de la Realidad, se podrá disfrutar de la música de grupos como: Luchadores del Pueblo; Cro Eleazar; Los Bamex; Cro Manayer; Tócame si puedes capitalista; Creadores Rebeldes del Sur; Dúc Rebelde; Trío Rebelde; Los Primos; Cro Yorch; Hijos del Pueblo; Colibrí del sur; Juventud rebelde y Seguidores de la Lucha.

Previo al inicio del festival, la tarde de este domingo cinco de agosto, al término del Encuentro de redes de apoyo al Concejo Indígena de Gobierno (CIG), del Congreso Nacional Indígena (CNI), el Subcomandante Moisés al dirigirse a l@s asistentes, reiteró la lectura que como zapatistas dan al contexto nacional e internacional actual. El vocero zapatista fue tajante al decir que no hay “patrón bueno”, en referencia a las diferentes formas de la explotación y despojo capitalista y sus representantes, a los que equiparó como “Capataces” (presidentes), “Mayordomos” (gobernadores) y “Caporal” (presidentes municipales).

Por su parte el subcomandante Galeano, siguiendo las palabras del subcomandante Moisés, indicó que cualquier capataz “va ser enfrentado”, esto al ver que el capitalismo está volviendo a los métodos que le dieron origen, “la guerra de conquista de nuevos territorios”. Al darle prioridad al consumo la economía mundial predadora, “destruirá lo más que pueda”, alertó Galeano. También señaló que las nuevas “mercancías” del capitalismo, están en territorio de los pueblos originarios y son: el agua, la tierra, el aire, entre otros. Ante las crisis que produce el sistema como la migración y catástrofes naturales, “el capitalismo está ensayando un repliegue hacia dentro como una antiglobalización para poder defenderse”, expuso el vocero zapatista. Diferentes muros van a seguir levantándose y van a proliferar como archipiélagos para separar a los ricos de los pobres, añadió.

Galeano también destacó el papel de los diferentes colectivos que trabajaron en apoyo al CIG y su vocera María de Jesús Patricio Martínez, en la recolección de firmas para que “Marichuy”, lograra su registro como candidata a la presidencia de la república. “Con todo en contra, los colectivos y vocera, denunciaron al sistema depredador”, expresó el insurgente, que pese a que el registro oficial no se logró, externó que junto con el congreso Nacional Indígena (CNI) y los grupos de apoyo, ahora consultarán hacer más grade el Concejo, esto para que esta iniciativa “no absorba y anule las diferencias; sino que las potencie”, a nivel internacional. “Nuestro llamado no es solo a los originarios, sino a tod@s los que se rebelan en todos los rincones del mundo”, compartió el rebelde chiapaneco.

Mensaje de las mujeres bases de apoyo zapatistas el Encuentro de Mujeres que se realizó en la comunidad indígena Hñähñu de San Lorenzo Nenamicoyan, Estado de México, los días 28 y 29 de julio de 2018

A las Mujeres del Congreso Nacional Indígena
Del Concejo Indígena de Gobierno
A Mujeres del Encuentro de Mujeres

Reciban un saludo revolucionario a nombre de las compañeras bases de apoyo zapatistas. Nos da mucho gusto escuchar que ustedes organizaron un Encuentro de Mujeres, que no dependieron de los hombres. Es así que debemos conquistar nuestro derecho como mujeres, donde tengamos espacio para luchar contra el capitalismo patriarcal, escuchar diferentes formas organizándonos en las reuniones, asambleas, con conciencia y valor. Que nosotras, las mujeres, sí podemos hacer los trabajos de diferentes formas, como en la salud, educación, producción, tercias, medias, justicia, radios comunitarias, en las artes y también como gobernamos en las juntas de buen gobierno, en los MAREZ y autoridades locales de los tres niveles autónomos.

Todo eso no ha sido tan fácil porque no tenemos manual, sino en las prácticas ahí fuimos aprendiendo como en los trabajos que se necesitan. Aunque con errores, ahí fuimos corrigiéndonos. No por eso dejamos de luchar. También estamos vigilándonos en todas las áreas del trabajo que ejercemos en la autonomía y educamos a nuestros jóvenas y jóvenes a que tengan una vida mejor, su libertad para luchar contra el pinche sistema capitalista patriarcal.

Nosotras, como mujeres, no somos objetos para ellos. Tampoco mercancías ni limosneras. No pensemos que alguien nos viene a dar el cambio, sino que nosotras tenemos que hacer el cambio, organizándonos desde abajo con los millones de mexicanas y mexicanos que ¿a poco se conforman con la situación en que están? (…) La esperanza, compañeras, que sigamos luchando y organizándonos. Que no sea la primera ni la última vez que organizan este encuentro porque es necesario compartir sus experiencias de lucha. Así como nosotras llevamos 24 años de lucha y nos falta mucho para hacer y aprender organizándonos, como ya dijimos que no tenemos libros o manual para diario, sino conforme a los pasos, vamos tejiendo nuestras experiencias y rescatando nuestra sabiduría como pueblos originarios.

Ánimo, pues, compañeras. No dejemos de luchar. Ganaremos en conquistar nuestros derechos como mujeres, la igualdad y la libertad junto con nuestros compañeros. Vamos adelante.

México, julio 2018.

Este fresco remanso de barullo y lucha nos recibe en calma. Nos respalda el escarpado Cerro de la Cruz, al que cada 3 de mayo sube la comunidad para invocar lluvia y buenas cosechas. Convocadas por la Comisión de Mujeres del Concejo Indígena de Gobierno (CIG) para México del Congreso Nacional Indígena (CNI), mil cien mujeres indígenas y mestizas de trece pueblos originarios, veinticinco estados de la República Mexicana, dieciocho países y el Kurdistán nos reunimos los días 28 y 29 de julio en la comunidad indígena Hñähñu de San Lorenzo Nenamicoyan, Estado de México. La comunidad nos abre su auditorio y su escuela, mientras nos acondiciona un comedor solidario que se crece con puestos de comida y vendimia de muchos sabores y colores.

Las preguntas se nos agolpan en la mente y las respuestas van buscando su lugar.

¿Cómo ser estas “mujeres que somos” en el país más feminicida?
