The Word of Subcomandante Insurgente Moisés
May 8, 2015
Good afternoon compañeros, compañeras, brothers and sisters.
Perhaps by continuing our explanation of how resistance and rebellion are weapons for us you will better understand some of the things that our compañeros and compañeras here at the table have talked about.
Through our resistance and rebellion, we have come to understand that by putting resistance and rebellion into practice we confirm that we will not allow in our struggle what happened in 1910, when so many of our fellow Mexicans died. Who took advantage of that situation?

Good evening, compañeros, compañeras, brothers and sisters.
It seems like a splash of cold water on our faces was indeed what we needed, because now we are definitely getting some thought-provoking ideas.
So we will need to translate this from Spanish to Tzeltal, Tojolabal, Tzotzil, and Chol, and from there a joint response will arise, because there are some things proposed by the compañeros at this table that we are interested in discussing.
We continue with our words of explanation and discussion on what resistance and rebellion mean to us as Zapatistas.
For us, as an organization that resists and struggles in rebellion, we first need to be clear on why one would resist and rebel. If we are not clear on the “Why?” the “For what?” and the “From what?” we simply cannot go forward.
