Besides, the "Pachamerican" vision tries to break with that ridiculous Latinamerican chauvinism that sees us isolated from the world, and, on the other side, with the pathetic paternalism that many times leads activists in industrialized countries to express the need of "solidarity with those poor little indians who don't even know what they're doing". We recognize that as a result of the capitalist globalization, that dialogue between the people from the global North and the global South is, more and more so, what we would call in criollo "a dialogue of jodid@s a jodid@s" (a dialogue between "fucked" and "fucked"). In that sense, Pachamerica includes in its rebellious vision of a continent the peoples of the United States and Canada (with their struggles: indigenous, black, feminits, environmental, gay, etc) and the peoples inhabitting south of the Río Bravo all the way to Land of Fire. However, it is also important to mention that even though "Pachamérica" refers directly to our continent, this "Pachamamista" vision doesn´t limit itself to our geographic boundaries, but links efforts with the struggles of all peoples that resist in this beautiful Earth that gave birth to us. all.
Being "Pachamerican" is knowing yourself as daughter and son of Pachamama, and therefore siblings to all human beings and other animals, to the environment, and to a commitment to eternal solidarity.
For a free Pachamama... and her smiling sons and daughters...
a united struggle! always!
