En entrevista para Radio Zapatista, Gilberto López y Rivas comparte su opinión acerca de la iniciativa ya en curso del Congreso Nacional Indígena y del Ejército Zapatista de Liberación Nacional para la conformación del Concejo Indígena de Gobierno y el registro de su vocera para contender a las elecciones generales del próximo año. El antropólogo e investigador señala la relevancia de la propuesta para la democratización del país dada la legitimidad de una candidatura, colectiva e independiente, que represente a los pueblos de abajo y a la izquierda, desde sus propias formas de organización y buen gobierno, y bajo un programa anticapitalista.

Teniendo en cuenta la trayectoria de lucha de los pueblos que integran el CNI, procesos organizativos que reivindican su territorio y autonomía e hicieron suyas desde 1996 las demandas de los Acuerdos de San Andrés, la iniciativa también significaría evidenciar, una vez más, la situación de despojo, muerte y destrucción que vive la nación-pueblo de México como consecuencia del sistema capitalista neoliberal y la continuidad colonial que trae consigo.

Esperamos que este material sirva para sus reflexiones y la difusión de esta iniciativa de los pueblos de abajo frente a la Tormenta; el desastre y la guerra en que nos encontramos.

The Hour for Our Peoples to Flourish Has Arrived Another Step Forward

The Hour for Our Peoples to Flourish Has Arrived
Another Step Forward

Joint communique from the National Indigenous Congress and the Sixth Commission of the EZLN greeting the first members of the civil association, “The Hour for Our Peoples to Flourish Has Arrived.” This is a required legal step in order to register the candidacy of the spokesperson of the CIG [Indigenous Governing Council], the indigenous woman María de Jesús Patricio Martínez, for the presidency of the Mexican Republic 2018-2024.

August, 2017

To the People of Mexico:
To the Peoples of the World:
To the National and International Sixth:
Sisters, brothers, hermanoas,

Compañeras, compañeros, and compañeroas:

The originary barrios, tribes, nations, and peoples gathered in the National Indigenous Congress and the indigenous Zapatista communities salute this next step forward on the long road toward putting the name of our indigenous compañera María de Jesús Patricio Martínez on the electoral ballot in 2018 as candidate for the Mexican presidency.

This legal step has been possible thanks to the generous ear, respectful gaze, and friendly word of women and men who have earned, through their own history and efforts, a special place not only in Mexico and in the world but also, and above all, in the heart that is the color of the earth that we are.

The National Indigenous Congress as well as the indigenous Zapatistas express here our approval of and appreciation to:

These persons, along with others who are currently being contacted, form part of the Civil Association named “The Hour for Our Peoples to Flourish Has Arrived,” a necessary body formed in order to begin the path of registration for the candidate whom, with respect and affection, we call “Marichuy,” so that for the first time in this country’s history, a woman from an originary people, and indigenous woman, contends for the presidency of the Mexican Republic.

Because of their honesty and commitment, all of these people hold our absolute trust and admiration. We thus presented their names to the first General Assembly of the Indigenous Governing Council held August 5 and 6, 2017. The Indigenous Governing Council received with joy the support of these brothers and sisters who are recognized across broad sectors in Mexico and the world due to their work in the sciences, arts, and social struggle.

In the face of the current war, our wager is for a real peace, that is, with democracy, freedom, and justice. This is one further step on our path to find those who we want to hear to and who we want to call to organize themselves.

From the most forgotten corners of originary Mexico, for the Full Reconstitution of Our Peoples: Never Again a Mexico Without Us!
