CONVOCATORIA A LA JORNADA GLOBAL DE LUCHA EN DEFENSA DE LA VIDA Y DE NUESTROS TERRITORIOS “SAMIR FLORES VIVE”

A 527 años del inicio de la resistencia y rebeldía de los pueblos originarios contra la invasión colonial, la guerra del sistema capitalista patriarcal y sus megaproyectos siguen trayendo muerte y destrucción en todo el mundo y ponen en riesgo a todas las formas de vida en el planeta tierra.

Particularmente en México, con la mentira de querer erradicar la pobreza del sur del país, el gobierno de López Obrador en pleno contubernio con las mafias empresariales, la delincuencia organizada y los partidos políticos de todos los colores, retoma el viejo sueño de Porfirio Díaz y los planes de todos los gobiernos neoliberales desde Salinas de Gortari, ofreciendo el territorio nacional al capital global.

Frente al desastre nacional y mundial, La Asamblea Nacional e Internacional del Congreso Nacional Indígena / Concejo Indígena de Gobierno y adherentes a la Sexta, Redes de Resistencia y Rebeldía, organizaciones y colectiv@s “El Istmo es Nuestro”, reunida en Juchitán, Istmo de Tehuantepec, Oaxaca, los días 6, 7 y 8 de septiembre del 2019

CONVOCAMOS a los pueblos, organizaciones y personas de México y del Mundo a que, de acuerdo con los modos y tiempos de cada organización, A REALIZAR ACCIONES COORDINADAS en el marco de la

Jornada global de lucha

En defensa de la Vida y de Nuestros Territorios

“SAMIR FLORES VIVE”

el 12 de octubre de 2019.

Les invitamos a que sea una movilización dislocada y contundente, en todo el país, contra los megaproyectos de muerte, de carácter anticapitalista y antipatriarcal, buscando que todos los sectores participen, haciendo del paliacate un símbolo común y que en todos los espacios mostremos el arte, la música, la creatividad de abajo.

Denunciemos que con la implementación de los megaproyectos como el mal llamado Tren Maya, la Refinería Dos Bocas, el Corredor Inter-Oceánico del Istmo, el proyecto Integral Morelos, el Nuevo Aeropuerto y sus obras asociadas como la Autopista México-Tuxpan, así como un monstruoso conjunto de proyectos de depredación ambiental, territorial y social con minería, hidroeléctricas, agroindustriales, corredores industriales, gasoductos, oleoductos, fracking, parques eólicos, paneles solares empresariales a gran escala, etc. que forman parte de la infraestructura que se pretende imponer para el saqueo de los bienes naturales (petróleo, minerales, bosques, selvas, viento, ríos, lagos y mares) y la sobreexplotación de mano de obra de nuestros pueblos de México y Latinoamérica para entregar nuestros territorios al gran capital transnacional, destruyendo la biodiversidad y agudizando la catástrofe del calentamiento global”, quedando claro que esta propuesta del estado de carácter desarrollista neoliberal no abonará de ninguna manera a la solución de los problemas de las mexicanas y los mexicanos que son el desempleo, la pobreza y la violencia, entre otros.

 

Las actividades que cada organización defina deberán registrarse a más tardar el 1 de octubre en el correo samirflores.vive@gmail.com.

Todas las acciones que se registren serán difundidas en las distintas redes sociales y pagina web del Congreso Nacional Indígena/ Concejo Indígena de Gobierno.

Images from the Breaking of the Siege II (and last) from August 17, 2019.

Images from the Breaking of the Siege II (and last)
From August 17, 2019.

Note from SupGaleano: Here there should be a photo slide show from the new CRAREZ [Centers of Autonomous Zapatista Resistance and Rebellion] which were announced as part of the breaking of the siege on August 17, 2019. This video will likely be removed by Mr. YouTube since it is set to a song by Ana Tijoux (Chilean-French) and Shadia Mansour (Palestinian) entitled “Somos Sur,” [We are the South] and supposedly we either have to pay royalties or accept advertising. We are not of course going to accept advertising, and if there’s no money for water tanks for the new caracol Tulan Kaw, then there’s certainly no money to pay royalties. In any case, the Sixth Commission does not “monetize” our videos (plus, the traffic on our channel is like the traffic during semana santa (Easter) in Mexico City), so I doubt Mr. YouTube is going to end up any less rich because of our refusal to accept advertisement, nor are Ana Tijoux and Shadia Mansour going to lose artistic quality or followers because we have accompanied their rebellion with ours.

Maybe instead of taking down the videos that people set to music—as Zapata didn’t say, “music belongs to those who sing/dance/hum/bounce/whisper/shout and spread it (and like Shadia Mansour says, rapping in Arabic: “music is the mother tongue of the world”)—Mr. YouTube should work on his damned algorithm (“Oh, the twisted lines of YouTube”i). You know how it goes, you start out looking for videos of the guys from Botellita de Jerez to pay homage to the memory of Armando Vega Gil, or you search for ska from Los de Abajo, or Salón Victoria, or some tracks from Jijos del Mais, or Van T, or Mexican Sound, or LenguaAlerta, or Lirica, or Ely Guerra, or Keny Arkana, or the Batallones Femeninos, or from those masters Oscar Chávez and Guillermo Velázquez and Los Leones de la Sierra de Xichú, and all of a sudden you’re getting bombarded with videos of rodeos, cockfights, Maluma giving classes on how to respect women, or makeup videos (“now we’re going to learn how to do makeup for a ‘no makeup’ selfie”).

It’s not that we’re being fussy—after all, like Inodoro Pereyra said (or was it Mendieta?), “Broad and Alien is the World”ii—but rather that here, bandwidth is about as broad as Trump’s IQ: paltry, in other words.

Given all of the above, if YouTube removes the video because of its soundtrack (like it already did with Princess Mononoke, apparently because Studio Ghibli decided to side with the system instead of with natureiii), we’ll repost the same photo slideshow here but without music, and you can add the music yourselves. In fact, I’ll include the translation from Arabic to Spanish of Shadia Mansour’s rap (based on the contribution from the user qmqz posted on the official music video) [TN: translated here in English]:

“Give me the mic:

Music is the mother tongue of the world
It supports our existence and protects our roots, tying us to greater Syria, Africa, and Latin America
Here I stand with Anita Tijoux
Here I stand with those who suffer, not with those who sold us out
Here I stand with culture, resistance
From the beginning and forever, hasta la victoria siempre!
I am with those who are against, with those who have cooperated, with those not on our side
Way back I did the math and I decided to invest in Banksy after Ban-Ki went bankrupt (Note from SupGaleano: possibly a reference to Ban-Ki Moon, who was Secretary General of the United Nations when this song was recorded, and went “bankrupt” when he refused to condemn the Israeli government’s terrorist actions against the Palestinian people).
As the saying goes, “it’s not that the situation needs a ‘proportionate response’, the situation needs to be stopped”
For every freed political prisoner an Israeli settlement grows
For every civil greeting a thousand homes are destroyed
They use the press to their benefit
But while my sorrow is vetoed, reality insists”

You know what? With or without YouTube, with or without advertising, the Palestinian people and the Mapuche people will achieve freedom. Ten, one hundred, a thousand times they will reach victory.

And if Mr. YouTube takes the whole thing down as part of the “fuck the Zapatistas now” campaign, oh well, we’ll just go back to the good old days of the Zapatista Intergalactic Television System, “the only television channel that you read” (Permit 69, currently being processed by the Good Government Councils, submitted as of 1996 but caracoles move slooooooooowly….).

“Sabemos también que la rebeldía está prohibida, como están prohibidas la dignidad y la rabia. Pero en todo el mundo, en sus rincones más olvidados y despreciados, hay seres humanos que se resisten a ser devorados por la máquina y no se rinden, no se venden y no claudican. Muchos colores tienen, muchas son sus banderas, muchas las lenguas que les visten, y gigantescas son su resistencia y su rebeldía.”
Subcomandante Insurgente Moisés. México, Agosto 2019

A la Sexta Nacional e Internacional

A un año de la desaparición del compañero Sergio Rivera Hernández del Movimiento Agrario Indígena Zapatista desde el pasado 23 de agosto de 2018, el Congreso Nacional Indígena – Concejo Indígena de Gobierno exigimos la presentación con vida de nuestro compañero y que cese a la represión y despojo en la Sierra Negra, estado de Puebla, por la empresa minera Autlán.

Denunciamos que persiste la ambición para apoderarse de los recursos naturales mediante sus megaproyectos, responsabilizamos a la empresa minera Autlán por la integridad del compañero Sergio, así como a los gobiernos municipales de Tlacotepec y Zoquitlán, que junto a los grupos narco paramilitares que les sirven, siembran el terror y la represión en favor de las empresas capitalistas protegidas por todos los niveles, poderes y partidos políticos del mal gobierno.

Desde las luchas que somos los pueblos originarios, con las que defendemos a nuestra madre tierra de la destrucción capitalista que amenaza la vida en el mundo. Desde la guerra que se libra en los territorios del CNI-CIG donde a la esperanza le llamamos autonomía, saludamos y abrazamos la conformación de 11 nuevos Centros de Resistencia Autónoma y Rebeldía Zapatista, a las 43 luces de dignidad que representan y que ofrecen luz en la oscura noche capitalista.

Saludamos la campaña zapatista “Samir Vive”, en la que se sembró la semilla que hace más grande la palabra digna y rebelde de los pueblos indígenas del estado del Chiapas, y con eso hace fuerte la palabra de abajo y la certeza anticapitalista de la lucha de los pueblos, que se teje rompiendo cercos con los caminos antiguos de los antepasados.

A los 11 nuevos Centros de Resistencia Autónoma y Rebeldía Zapatista, les enviamos un abrazo fraterno con el dolor, la rabia, el amor y la esperanza con la que sembramos y tejemos, en luchas chiquitas y grandes, teniendo como guía los siete principios del mandar obedeciendo.

Por lo anterior ratificamos que, pese a la guerra en contra nuestra, orquestada por los que ostentan el poder en este país, no cederemos ante la muerte, el terror y la mentira con las que buscan dejar los territorios indígenas y la naturaleza en manos de gran capital y la destrucción que predica, pues es su fin y su medio.

Exigimos la presentación con vida de Sergio Rivera Hernández

Exigimos justicia para Samir Flores Soberanes

Por la reconstitución integral de nuestros pueblos

Communique from the EZLN’s CCRI-CG: And We Broke the Siege

Communique from the Indigenous Revolutionary Clandestine Committee—General Command of the Zapatista Army for National Liberation
Mexico

August 17, 2019

To the People of Mexico:
To the Peoples of the World:
To the National Indigenous Congress—Indigenous Governing Council:
To the National and International Sixth:
To the Networks of Support and Resistance and Rebellion:

Hermanos, Hermanas, Hermanoas:

Compañeras, Compañeros, Compañeroas:

We bring you our word. The same word as yesterday, today, and tomorrow. It is the word of resistance and rebellion.

In October of 2016, almost three years ago, during the 20th anniversary of the National Indigenous Congress [CNI], the sister organizations of the National Indigenous Congress and the EZLN made a commitment to go on the offensive in our defense of our Territory and Mother Earth. Persecuted by the bad government, by caciques, by foreign corporations, by criminals, and by the law, and as we accumulated insults, derision, and dead, we the originary peoples (the guardians of the earth), decided to go on the offensive and circulate the words and actions of resistance and rebellion.

With the founding of the Indigenous Governing Council [CIG] and the selection of its spokesperson, Marichuy, the National Indigenous Congress gave itself the job of taking words of warning and organization to the brothers and sisters of the city and countryside. Meanwhile, the EZLN also went on the offensive in its struggle with its words, ideas, and organization.

The time has come to hold ourselves accountable to the CNI-CIG and its spokesperson so that their peoples can decide if we have lived up to what we promised. But it is not only the CNI-CIG that we are accountable to; we also have a pending debt with the organizations, groups, collectives, and individuals (especially those in the Sixth and the Networks [of Rebellion and Resistance], but not only them) that throughout Mexico and the world concern themselves with our Zapatista peoples. These are people who, whatever their calendars, geographies, and habits may be, disregard the walls, borders, and sieges that are erected to divide us so that their hearts can continue to beat close to our own.

Sonata for Violin in G Minor: MONEY

Sonata for Violin in G Minor: MONEY

The devil’s finest trick is to persuade you that he does not exist.”
― Charles Baudelaire in “The Generous Gambler”

I. The Eighth Passenger

Nowhere, or everywhere. A drowsy train drifts off to its own purr. It isn’t coming from or going to anywhere in particular. Or at least not anywhere that matters. A dismal population whose haggard lives seem to hang by a thread nod off on board. In the last car, seven bored, grubbily dressed and solitary passengers, their lives as wretched as their clothes, shift irritably in their seats and lament their situation.

I’d do anything to turn my luck around,” one says. They were speaking a universal language and the other six passengers nod in silence. Just then the long and battered train enters a tunnel, intensifying the shadows and hiding the passengers’ faces. The door opens and an eighth passenger walks in. The passenger’s clothes practically scream, “I’m not from around here,” but they sit down without a word. The tunnel stretches out the darkness.

A thunderous crack interrupts the silence, like a dry branch breaking but without a storm to blame. A pair of blazing eyes appear in the darkness: “I don’t think I need to introduce myself,” the fiery gaze hisses, “You have all conjured me in one way or another and I’m responding to your call. Make a wish: you pay with your soul. Name your price.”

The first passenger chooses health, to never get sick again. “Done,” Satan responds, picking up the healthy soul and throwing it in his bag.

Another passenger chooses wisdom, to know everything. “Done,” the devil murmurs, picking up the wise person’s soul and tossing it in his bag.

The third passenger opts for beauty, to be admired. “Done,” says the king of hell, tossing the beautiful one’s soul in his bag.

The fourth asks for Power, to rule and be obeyed. “Done,” Lucifer says under his breath, the soul of the new ruler added to his bag.

The fifth wants “pleasure,” to awaken passion at will. “Done,” the demon replies with a contented smile. The hedonist’s soul disappears into the devil’s bag.

The sixth passenger sits up straight and pronounces the desire for fame, to be widely recognized and praised. “Done,” Satan declares without a pause, and the famous soul takes its place among the other prisoners.

The seventh passenger practically sings their request for “love.” “Dooooooone,” the evil one replies with a guffaw, and the lover’s soul goes into the depths of the bag.

The fallen angel looks impatiently at the eighth passenger who hasn’t said anything and is merely scribbling in a notebook.

Adagio-Allegro Molto in E minor: A Possible Reality (from the Notebook of the Cat-Dog)

Adagio-Allegro Molto in E minor: A Possible Reality
(from the Notebook of the Cat-Dog)

“As you know, madness is like gravity…all it takes is a little push.”
The Joker in the role of Heath Ledger (or was it the reverse?)

Nobody knows for sure how it all started. Not even the Tercios Compas [Zapatista media], who took up the task of reconstructing the sequence of events, could pinpoint the exact moment and event in which the story I’m about to tell you began.

According to one version, SubGaleano is responsible for everything. Others say SubGaleano only started it and it was Subcomandante Insurgente Moisés who took it to completion.

See, what happened was that in one of his texts, SubGaleano mentioned a February 2011 program in which the journalist Carmen Aristegui asked if then-president Felipe Calderón Hinojosa was an alcoholic, and added that the nation should be informed about the health of the president. She was fired in retaliation. Up to that point in the story there is no disagreement—and you can confirm that’s what happened by referring to news articles from that time.

The problem really begins when SubGaleano added something like, “Madness, as pointed out by a misunderstood sage of the human soul, is like gravity: all it takes is a little push. To hold Power unlawfully is just that irresistible push that all those above long for, and it begins with three simple words, “I rule here.” If you think anyone in the media is going to question whether the current president is lacking in any of his mental faculties (let’s be clear, he didn’t say “crazy”), don’t hold your breath, because nobody will dare to do so.”

The Overture: Reality As Enemy

The Overture: Reality As Enemy

“If our epoch thinks this way,” the world says to itself, “who is (no)one to say otherwise”? Who are the politicians to do so if they should obey us? Who are the judges to do so if their decisions are obligated to reflect and please us? Who are the journalists and essayists to do so if their opinions should meld with our own? Who are the thinkers to do so…given that they aren’t even necessary to us? Who are the law makers to say otherwise if they are supposed to establish laws following our dictates?”

–Javier Marias, “When Society Is The Tyrant.” (from El País Semanal, May 13, 2018) *

(*) I don’t know if citing Javier Marías (whose novels A Heart So White and Tomorrow In The Battle Think on Me eased the sleeplessness of the now deceased SubMarcos during the nights after the betrayal which took place in February of 1995) makes me part of the conservatives’ and neoliberals’ “mafia of power.” I mean, I bring this up given the fact that Javier Marias has worked with the Spanish newspaper El País and that he tends to sharply question the evidence when others tend to swallow it hook, line, and sinker without so much as a whimper and that he’s intelligent and can’t (nor do I think that he wants to) hide it. In addition, let’s not forget that that he’s a monarchist because he is king, Xavier I, of the Kingdom of Redonda and a member of the Royal Academy of Spain. All of these reasons are more than enough reason to tag him as a “conservative/neoliberal/enemy of the people and its vanguard which is marching inexorably to the fulfillment of all history,” by the new thought police that we now suffer.

As I’m sure you all know by now, I care a lot about “what people say” about me because I have a reputation to protect. Given this concern I had to think carefully and in all seriousness about this citation…for all of a fraction of a second. At that moment I saw hashtags, trending topics, likes and dislikes, facebook rants, whatsapps, instagrams, morning press conferences, and opinion columns all flash before my eyes filled with condemnations and damning tags.

In my defense, I thought I could mention the fact that along with the Javier Marías books that the now deceased SubMarcos carried during those dark days, you could also find books by Manuel Vazquez Montalbán as well as Miguel Hernandez’s Expert in Moons. I thought I could also bring up the fact that Javier Marías is a fan of (or was a fan of—support for a football team is like love—it’s eternal, until it ends) Real Madrid, that Manuel Vázquez Montalbán is a fan of Barcelona, that Mario Benedetti is a fan of Nacional from Montevideo, Almuneda Grandes supports Atlético Madrid, Juan Villoro backs Necaxa and that I, in contrast, with my provincial chauvinism which is all the rage, support Jaguares from Chiapas.

(N.B.! Instead of using Baseball, the sport that has become the official sport and the sport of officialdom, I prefer to use soccer as my referent. So, make sure to add these additional sins onto my sentence.)
