EZLN and CNI announce the First Great World Festival of Rebellions and Resistances

“Where those from above destroy, we from below rebuild”

The Indigenous National Congress and the Zapatista Army of National Liberation, meeting together for 6 days in Caracol 1 of La Realidad, widely denounced the different dispossessions against the indigenous peoples throughout the national territory. “This dispossession has a name and that name is capitalism,” said Venustiano Vázquez Navarrete, delegate from the Wixarika people, who along with Miriam Vargas, read the first of the closing statements.

In this event Armando García Salazar, belonging to ñ’hañhú people, read a communiqué announcing the call to the First Great World Festival of Rebellions and Resistances, which will be held on the days from 21 December this year until 3 January 2015, in 6 states of the country.

To the brothers and sisters of the National and International Sixth:

In the gathering of our peoples in the Exchange between Zapatista Peoples and the National Indigenous Congress “David Ruíz Garcia,” we shared with each other our pain as well as our words and experiences of struggle, rebellion, and resistance.

Together we know that within our rebellions is our “NO” to the politics of destruction that capitalism carries out across the world. And we know that within our resistances are the seeds of the world that we want.

These rebellions and resistances are not just those of the indigenous peoples of Mexico. They are also found in the footsteps of the originary peoples across the continent and in all corners of the earth where individuals, groups, collectives, and organizations not only say “NO” to destruction, but go about constructing something new.

Homage to the compañero DAVID RUIZ GARCÍA during the Exchange between Indigenous Peoples and Zapatista Peoples

Words of the National Indigenous Congress compañero Armando García Salazar, of the hñahñu´ people of San Francisco Xochicuautla, in homage to the deceased compañero DAVID RUIZ GARCÍA during the Exchange between Indigenous Peoples and Zapatista Peoples, August 4, 2014.

AND

TWO SHORT CHRONICLES OF THE HOMAGE.

I. Words of compañero Armando García Salazar on behalf of the family and compañeros of the deceased compañero David Ruiz García.

Good morning everyone.

Good morning brothers, sisters, grandparents, children, and all of the compas who represent this movement.

Two months ago a nephew, a son, came to these lands in support of our brother Galeano. Unfortunately he suffered an accident upon his return.

Out of eagerness to defend justice and indigenous rights, he had been part of this movement for eight years. He very much wanted to come meet the Zapatista brothers, and to be frank, shake the hand of Subcomandante Marcos. It was his greatest desire. And he fulfilled it. He came to La Realidad.

Unfortunately, destiny is like this. Today, despite this, we, his brothers and his relatives, are here again. We will not retreat; David would have wanted us to go forward.

EN EJIDO SAN SEBASTIAN BACHAJON ADERENTES A LA SEXTA DECLARACION DE LA SELVA LACANDONA. CHIAPAS. MEXICO. A 3 DE AGOSTO DE 2014

Al Comité Clandestino Revolucionario Indígena-Comandancia General del Ejército Zapatista de Liberación Nacional
A las Juntas de Buen Gobierno
Al Congreso Nacional Indígena
A l@s compañer@s adherentes a la sexta declaracion de la selva lacandona
A los medios de comunicación masivos e alternativos
A la Red contra la Represión y por la Solidaridad
Al Movimiento de Justicia por el Barrio de Nueva York
A los defensores de derechos humanos nacional e internacional
Al pueblo de México y el mundo

Compañeras y compañeros de la Comandancia General del Ejército Zapatista de Liberación Nacional y de las bases de apoyo del EZLN agradecemos la invitación a la compartición en el Caracol I La Realidad, lugar donde diera su vida por la madre tierra el compañero maestro Galeano, asesinado por grupos partidistas el 2 de mayo de 2014, así como nuestros compañeros caídos Juan Vázquez Guzmán el 24 de abril de 2013 y Juan Carlos Gómez Silvano el 21 de marzo de 2014.

Vemos con rabia como el mal gobierno sin verguenza esta cambiando la constitución mexicana y las leyes para despojarnos de nuestros territorios y explotar los recursos naturales a su gusto, su estrategia es desplazarnos de cualquier manera, es una política de genocidio para ganar mucho dinero para unas cuantas manos.

Enrique Peña Nieto y Manuel Velasco Coello, los diputados y senadores son títeres solo sirven a sus amos el dinero y trasnacionales, por eso meten a la carcel a nuestros compañeros y compañeras que les estorban para hacer sus negocios o los asesinan para sembrar miedo en nuestros pueblos.

Los de arriba siempre dicen que las resistencias somos una minoría y que no queremos el progreso y desarrollo para las comunidades, son unos cinicos mentirosos que engañan a la gente con sus migajas y falsas promesas aprovechándose de la necesidad y falta de información en que viven nuestras comunidades. Lo que ellos los de arriba llaman progreso y desarrollo nosotros lo llamamos despojo y muerte, pobreza, marginación, discriminación, porque a ellos los políticos y empresarios corruptos y asesinos compran y venden territorios con todo y las personas que vivimos en esos lugares sin consultar ni preguntar la opinión de nuestros pueblos. Cuando los pueblos y comunidades nos enteramos de que nuestras tierras fueron rentadas o compradas por una empresa para explotar durante más de 40 o 50 años, llega el gobierno con sus policías para según ellos garantizar el orden y el estado de derecho, otra mentira más de los de arriba que nosotros llamamos explotación, abuso de poder y traición al pueblo.

La clase política mexicana traidora seguramente se siente tranquila de la gran traición y despojo que hace a los pueblos de México porque tiene mucho dinero, propiedades y trabajo asegurado en las empresas a las que se esta vendiendo o también para irse a esconder a otro país y protegerse en sus grandes casas con policías para no dar la cara al pueblo, pero también es verdad que como son unos cinicos mentirosos sigan siendo diputados, senadores, gobernadores y presidente de la república para seguir robando al pueblo.

Lo único que los mantiene a estos políticos corruptos en su poder es la policía, el ejército, la represión, porque no tienen respaldo del pueblo. Es como en San Sebastián Bachajón los últimos Comisariados ejidales los impone el gobierno para hacerlos a su antojo y el mismo gobierno les da el poder para mandar asesinar a nuestros compañeros luchadores sociales y vender las tierras de nuestro pueblo, pero estos comisariados no tienen mayoría, solo tienen a su amo el gobierno.

Por eso nuestra organización del pueblo de San Sebastián Bachajón va seguir luchando por defender el territorio que nos heredaron los abuelos y abuelas, queremos caminar con los pueblos que aman su tierra y la defienden para hacer más grande nuestra lucha y decirle al mal gobierno que el que manda es el pueblo organizado y tiene que obedecer, respetar a los pueblos, ya basta de tanta discriminación y violencia contra nuestros pueblos.

Desde la zona norte del estado de Chiapas saludamos a los compañeros y compañeras del Ejército Zapatista de Liberación Nacional y todos los pueblos en resistencia que estarán presentes en la compartición en La Realidad del Congreso Nacional Indígena, para escucharnos y construir el camino de la justicia y libertad.

Nunca más un México sin nosotros.

Atentamente

¡Tierra y libertad! ¡Zapata Vive!
¡Hasta la victoria siempre!
Presos políticos ¡Libertad!
¡Juan Vázquez Guzmán Vive, la Lucha de Bachajón sigue!
¡Juan Carlos Gómez Silvano Vive, la Lucha de Bachajón sigue!
¡No al despojo de los territorios indígenas!

A Safe Arrival

Zapatista Army for National Liberation
Mexico

August 3, 2014

To the Sixth in Mexico and in the world:
To the free, autonomous, alternative, or however-you-call-it media:

Compas:

Zapatista greetings.

FIRST. I am writing to let you know that the participants of the National Indigenous Congress have arrived safely to this First Exchange of the Zapatista Peoples and the Indigenous Peoples of Mexico “Compañero David Ruiz García.” The compañeras and compañeros bases of support who will be sharing their history of struggle have also arrived.

Here I want to share some information with you:

1. From the National Indigenous Congress as well as other indigenous social groups, peoples, tribes, and nations of Mexico, 312 participants have arrived from the following groups:

NAHUA
PURÉPECHA
MAYA PENINSULAR
MAZAHUA
ZOQUE
WIXARIKA
MIGRANTE
TEPEHUANO
COCA
HÑAHÑU
PAME
TRIQUI
MIXTECO
BINNI ZAA
CHINANTECO
IKOOT
AFROMEXICANO
POPOLUCA
TZOTZIL
CHOL
TOJOLABAL
TZELTAL
TOTONACO
KUMIAI
AMUZGO
MESTIZO
HUARIJÍO
MIXE
ÑHATO
CHONTAL

2. On behalf of the Zapatista communities, we have the participation of:

-50 presenters (male and female)
-50 scribes (male and female)
-1200 listeners from the Zapatista communities

In total: 1300 Zapatista bases of support.

All have arrived safely. I am letting you know so that you can inform others where you live and that way the families of those who have come from far away do not worry.

SECOND. As proposed by the compañeras and compañeros of the National Indigenous Congress, the closing event of this first exchange, on Saturday August 9, 2014, will be open to the press in general.

THIRD. The compañeras and compañeros of the National and International Sixth are special invitees to the closing event.

FOURTH. The compañeras and compañeros of the free, autonomous, alternative, or however-you-call-it media are special invitees to the closing event.

FIFTH. The compañeras and compañeros of the National and International Sixth are welcome to arrive as of Friday August 8, 2014, and their departure is at their own convenience.

We ask the free, autonomous, alternative, or however-you-call-it media to see about staying one extra day after the closing event so that we can hold that cursed press conference that we’ve been promising you, and which we couldn’t hold last time because we saw that you needed to leave quickly because the paid media were stealing the material you produced at the Homage for our deceased compañero Galeano. Indeed that is how capitalism works, stealing what others produce. So let’s see if you can organize things so that you can report on the closing event and then later we will do the press conference.

And SupGaleano tells me to inform the free, autonomous, alternative, or however-you-call-it media to come prepared because we are going to interview you. He says we are going to include a section in our magazine REBELDÍA ZAPATISTA called “The ducks shoot at the rifles,” where we will print the interviews we do with you. SupGaleano says that you will understand why the section has that title.

Finally, the last thing for today, I am sending you some photos that SupGaleano took of the set-up that has been prepared here. We’ll see if they send because the internet here is really slow, it’s like a snail with a limp. He says the title of the photos is “The Zapatista Alternative to the International Monetary Fund and the Usurious Banks: The Zapatista Mobile Bank.”[i] If the photos don’t go through, you can see the Zapatista Mobile Bank when you come.

You will also be able to see how the reconstruction is coming along for the clinic and the school that were destroyed by the CIOAC-Histórica paramilitaries.

It would be good for you to take photos, video, or whatever of the construction so that the good people who supported this just cause can see in the free, autonomous, alternative, or however-you-call-it media that we are honoring our word, not like the bad governments who keep everything for themselves while they say they are making social improvements. Pure thievery is what they do.

Well that’s all for now, compañeras and compañeros of the National and International Sixth. Tomorrow, Monday, after the inauguration, the work of the exchange will begin. We will send you the inaugural speech that compañero Comandante Tacho will give in the name of all of the Zapatistas.

That’s all.

From the mountains of the Mexican Southeast.

Subcomandante Insurgente Moisés.
Mexico, August 2, 2014. In the twentieth year of the war against oblivion.
