EZLN | Sixth Part: Postscript Who Seeks Hoping to Find


November 2023.

P.S. THAT SAYS WHAT IT SAYS. – As one of the late Sups said: “history repeats itself twice: once as a tragedy and the other time as well.” And this axiom of life comes to the point, because I received a package with a small note. No, it is not from SEGALMEX (those export, they do not import). The package has a postmark from “a distant geography”, in distant Europe. The date is blurred, but on the return address appears: “I am not Don Durito de La Lacandona, do not confuse. I’m just an AI entity.” That sentence should have been enough to put me on alert, but anyway I read the note and opened the package. The note is brief and says:

My dear and never missed Cyrano: I will be brief and precise. I’m going over there to help you. Don’t wait for me because I’m going incognito. I still haven’t decided whether I’m dressing up as a cloud or as Bad Bunny or as Luis Miguel or as Al Pacino. In any case, something that allows me to go unnoticed, if you know what I mean. For now, and since it’s stormy, I’m sending you my latest book. That’s all. From a corner in… Slovenia?… hey, what’s the name of this place? Cyprus? Hey? I think I’m going to put “Eastern Europe”… Huh? It’s not that either? Ok, then to hell with the geography up there: “from Fuck The Cardinal Points” Known Address. Zip Code… Hey, what’s the zip code? Huh? 666? Nah, just kidding, right? Right? Can anyone out there confirm that this is a joke? Hello? Hello? Signature: Durito disguised as an AI.

Yes I know. But believe me, when it comes to Durito, this is a brief and precise message. The book has on the cover, does anyone doubt it?, a beetle… in a tuxedo?!, and the very reassuring title «Survival Manual in the Case of World Collapse.» And, further down, “Everything you wanted to know to face the end of the world with style and elegance. Design the ideal outfit for the end of time. Be the sensation in the Apocalypse. Yessss!”

The book in question only has a blank page and a postscript lost in a corner: “LOOK FOR THE ONE WHO ALREADY LIVES THE HELL THAT AWAITS YOU ALL. SEEK THOSE WHO ARE SEEKING”.

P.S. FOR THE SEEKERS. – Before them, we only knew, for example, about the FNCR ladies. But later others appeared, it seems to me that since the six-year term of Vicente Fox. First a few and scattered throughout the geography. Then more. Then in groups. Now, in this entire clandestine graveyard called “Mexico,” they go from one place to another, looking for who they need. There is no one to help or support them. They are alone in the sense that they only have themselves. Yes, there are men too, but the majority are women. No, they are not fashionable. The disappeared do not vote, and that is what it is about. The entire electoral political spectrum, all the electoral flags, all the party acronyms, have already passed through the governments, and the profession of “SEEKER” is growing.

Years ago, in the written procedures, there was a line where “occupation” was written. Typically, women wrote “housewife,” “office worker,” “employee,” “professionist,” “student,” and so on.

The monstrosity of a system has created another occupation: that of “seeker.” Perhaps the most terrible, distressing, painful and anachronistic of all occupations.

Few things are a greater sign of the failure of a political proposal in power than the existence and growth of the SEEKER occupation.

Imagine someone interviews you: “Hey, what do you do?” She answers “I seek.” “And how much do you earn for that job?” «Nothing». “And how do you do it?” “I don’t know, but I know I have to do it. And I have to do it because she/he knows that I will not rest until I find him/her.” “Is there anything you want to tell other people?” “Yes, look at me, I am you in the future if we do nothing.” The reporter starts crying. She is still crying. What about them? Well, they keep seeking.

Meanwhile, someone in the mountains of Southeast Mexico writes:

“To the Seekers:

We had thought of organizing a meeting with you that would not be one of pain, but of joy. You know: dances, songs, poems, movies, plays, children’s drawings, things like that. Not something that relieves you or heals that wound that does not close, but just a celebration, which your fight deserves.

But a nefarious being, one of those that is never absent, wanted to turn that meeting into an electoral lever for the ill-called opposition. Calling for a “critical vote” for Bertha and that nonsense that only serves to get an opportunist into office. That’s why we haven’t done it… yet. We were not going to allow your noble efforts to be tarnished.

But we tell you here what we were going to tell you there: Don’t stop seeking. Those absent people are valuable because of the blood they inherited, which is your own. We do not know those whom you are missing, but we know you and the nobility of your struggle. Don’t give up, don’t sell out, don’t claudicate. Although the horror you face is unfashionable, your cause is just and noble. And no politician can say the same thing. Your stubborn dignity teaches and shows the way. We wish more people would look at you the way we Zapatista people see you: with admiration and respect.

P.S.- In Gaza. – The murdered Palestinian children are not collateral victims, they are Netanyahu’s main objective, they always were. This war is not to eliminate Hamas. It’s to kill the future. Hamas will only be the collateral victim. The government of Israel has already lost the media battle, because it turns out that the genocide, although disguised as revenge, does not have as many followers as they believed. Now it is capable of the most unimaginable cruelty. The one who perhaps could stop the massacre is… the people of Israel.

Cheers and may he who seeks find.

Un comando del ejército de Israel irrumpió en la vivienda de Ahed Tamimi, icono de la causa palestina, y detuvo la activista de 22 años “bajo sospecha de incitación a la violencia y actividades terroristas”, declaró un portavoz del ejército.

“Felicitaciones a las fuerzas de Tierra, Aérea y Marina (FDI) que arrestaron esta noche a la terrorista y ‘activista de derechos humanos’ Ehed Tamimi Manvi Saleh, quien anteriormente fue condenada por atacar a soldados de las FDI y, desde el estallido de la guerra, ha expresado simpatía y apoyo a los seres humanos nazis en las redes sociales. ¡Tolerancia cero con los terroristas y partidarios del terrorismo!”, expresó en sus redes sociales el ministro de seguridad de Israel Itamar Ben Gvir.

La activista se hizo famosa a los 14 años, cuando mordió a un soldado israelí como defensa ante la detención de su hermano menor. En 2017 fue detenida por al menos 8 meses solo por exigir a los militares israelíes que se fueran del patio de su casa. Mientras estuvo presa una gran red de solidaridad se desató en diversas partes del mundo.

El ejército israelí afirma que esta vez la detuvo solo para interrogarla. No obstante, la madre de la activista, Nariman Tamimi, ha declarado a diversos medios que los militares registraron su vivienda y le fueron confiscados los teléfonos móviles de toda la familia. Así mismo, denunció que su esposo, Bassem Tamimi, fue detenido hace una semana en una redada. Hasta el momento desconocen su paradero.

Este domingo 5 de noviembre, más de 15 mil personas se manifestaron en solidaridad con el pueblo palestino ante el despiadado ataque del Estado de Israel contra Gaza, que hasta ahora ha cobrado la vida de más de 10 mil palestinos, entre los cuales se encuentran más de 4 mil niños y 2 mil 600 mujeres, y por lo menos 25 mil 400 heridos, entre ellos más de 6 mil niños. Del lado de Israel, 1 mil 400 israelitas han muerto y 5 mil 600 han resultado heridos.

El ataque de Israel, por mar, aire y tierra, ha hecho caso omiso de la ley internacional, bombardeando hospitales, escuelas de la ONU y campos de refugiados, asesinando indiscriminadamente a la población civil. La OMS ha documentado 82 ataques a hospitales desde el 7 de octubre, efectivamente desactivando el 46% de las instalaciones de salud (muchos de ellos por falta de energía y combustible).

Desde el inicio del conflicto, por lo menos 36 periodistas han sido asesinados.

La falta de alimentos, agua y combustible está provocando una emergencia humanitaria para el pueblo de Gaza que, como muchos han denunciado, está muy cerca de provocar un genocidio. Craig Mokhiber, un alto funcionario de las Naciones Unidas, renunció como protesta por la incapacidad de la ONU de frenar lo que él llama “un genocidio de manual”.

Mientras tanto, un documento filtrado del Ministerio de Inteligencia de Israel, escrito menos de una semana después del ataque de Hamas del 7 de octubre, propone realizar una limpieza étnica de la franja de Gaza, desplazando a toda la población al desierto de Egipto.

Alrededor del mundo, cientos de miles de personas se han manifestado contra la barbarie en curso cometida por Israel. Sin embargo, los bombardeos continúan y las grandes potencias occidentales, en particular los Estados Unidos, continúan apoyando a Israel con armamento.

Latin America and the Palestinian Genocide

By: Marcos Arana, Observatorio del Derecho a la Salud

Condemning Israel for its crimes is not an act of anti-Semitism. With its unconscionable cruelty and insensitivity to the lives of children and other civilian population, Israel betrays the fundamentals of Judaism in which there is one commandment above all others, and which speaks of the importance and power of empathy: “You shall not oppress a stranger, for you know the heart of a stranger: you were strangers in the land of Egypt” (Shemot 22:20).

With its disregard for the lives of the Palestinians, the State of Israel is severely undermining the moral authority and symbolic value that the world conferred on the Jews at the end of World War II for their sacrifice and resilience; and whose testimony should have been for all humanity, a perennial reminder that the atrocities they suffered was a crime that should never be repeated. However, instead of honoring the history of the millions of European Jews who were exterminated, the Israeli government distorts the narrative to justify the dispossession and slaughter of Palestinians, as well as to manipulate the blame that persists among the leaders of countries that were passive, silent or collaborators in the face of Nazi barbarism. Israel blackmails to ensure support and impunity for its criminal excesses and violations of
international law, as well as to neutralize the ability of the United Nations to stop them.

The United States and the European Union guarantee Israel’s impunity to perpetrate the same kind of excesses that these very same countries committed during the darkest moments of their colonial histories. Their complicity prevents the ceasefire and endorses the genocide in Gaza and the West Bank. The position of these governments will fill them with shame and blame in the future for having been collaborators in one of the greatest mass crimes of recent history. One day they will have to be held accountable for repressing and ignoring the clamor of their citizens demanding a halt to Israel’s aggression. In this way, the governments of these countries have not only allowed, but helped the State of Israel to misuse the name and history of a victimized people to become the executioner.

The military escalation carried out by Israel against Gaza is much more than an act of excessive punishment; it constitutes a premeditated and long-planned action to take advantage of the Hamas attack as a pretext to implement a final solution to the Palestinian problem; similar to the “Endlösung der Judenfrage” or final solution that the genocidal Nazis executed against Jews and Gypsies. At this moment, the Israeli government is implementing a final solution against the Palestinians; the scenario has changed, it is no longer the Warsaw Ghetto or the Ukrainian Galizia; now it is Gaza. It is no longer the swastika, but the blue star on the Israeli flag. The solution is to annihilate the Palestinians from the cradle and the womb of their mothers and throw the survivors into the Egyptian desert. This is the plan, meticulously carried out by Israel. Biden, Macron, Sunak, Scholz and other European leaders endorse it, and form the circle that protects the lynching.

To carry out the “Final Solution,” the Germans coordinated and perpetrated the murder of the Jews of Europe. They murdered the Jews by implementing policies that led to starvation, disease, random acts of terrorism, mass shootings and death by gassing. The difference is that in the Palestinian Holocaust, the sacrificial fire comes from American weapons.

Fortunately, Israel does not represent all Jews. Tens of thousands of Jews are opposing the ethnocide, marching and raising their voices to demand that Israel stop the massacre and to say “Not in our name!”. Jews for Peace, who demand Israel to stop the massacre of Palestinians, remind us of the dignified difference between the Germans who joined in breaking windows and denouncing Jews and those who hid and protected the persecuted at the beginning of World War II.

It is not acceptable that the millions of people around the world who oppose the genocide and dispossession of the Palestinian people are powerless to stop the genocide. We can demand that Latin American governments withdraw their ambassadors to Israel and break diplomatic relations. The Colombian president Petro already warned about this possibility. While finishin writing this text, the Bolivian government announced its decision to cut diplomatic ties with Israel in an energic statement denouncing Israel genocidal military operation against palestinians. Hopefully other countries in the region will make the same desion.

We need to claim diplomatic isolation and economic boycott against Israel. We urge that Netanyahu and Yoav Galant, the defense minister of Israel to be formally charged as war criminals and arrest warrants against them are issued. They should not be allowed to travel, that they be isolated, singled out, charged, that they not go unpunished.

And along with the other war-mongers, who have launched a war of extermination against the Palestinian people, they are also guilty of distracting the whole world from the urgent task of fighting a global climate cataclysm. Their war machines are accelerating their intensity at breakneck speed. Their war machines are  also murdering all of us.
