FREEDOM FOR OUR PRISONERS AND MISSING POLITICAL ACTIVISTS!
AGAINST CALDERON’S WAR! EVERYONE TO THE STREETS ON DECEMBER 3 and 4!
To the Other Campaign
To the Zezta Internazional
Compañeras and compañeros:
Given the repressive onslaught of the federal and state governments in this country against the Zapatista Support Base compañer@s (BAZ) in Chiapas; against the compañer@s of the National Indigenous Congress (CNI) in Ostula, Michoacán, where the compañero Pedro Leyva was killed; in Cheran, where our compañer@s are defending the forests against the illegal logging which is supported by the local authorities; in Oaxaca, where the killings in the Triqui region do not stop; an end to the harassment of the Coca people in the town of Mezcala, Jalisco and in other parts of the country where they struggle against capitalist plunder, as is the case of the Wixárika and Yaqui peoples. Also, given the actions in resistance undertaken by our compañer@s political prisoners in Chiapas, Oaxaca and Guerrero, to demand their freedom and the presentation alive of our missing political activist compañer@s. We also demand an end to the systematic femicides of sex workers throughout the republic and the punishment of those responsible, to show our solidarity with the compañer@s of the Other Campaign in Juarez, attacked by the local brutes.
Therefore, within the framework of the campaign ‘a thousand rages, one heart, the Zapatista communities live!’, we call on everyone to mobilize on the 3rd and 4th of December, so that, according to our own ways of doing things, we can all perform activities in our own places to show our solidarity with the organizations and individuals who are part of the Other Campaign in the country [Mexico] and who are, or have been, victims of government violence, and to demonstrate our opposition to the repression of the Mexican state which murders, kidnaps, and illegally detains social activists who are in opposition to its policies of dispossession, exploitation and death.
The mobilization of our forces in the country will help free our prisoners, rescue our disappeared, identify the killers and impart justice. We fight against the impunity of a corrupt political regime which is unable to offer our people the solutions they require to live well and in peace.
The struggle of the Zapatista compañer@s shows that there is another way, yes you can live well, with security and wellbeing. So they attack them, fear them, and try to destroy their schools and clinics, they do not want the example to spread. This is why the struggle to change things in this country requires our commitment, militant activism and solidarity with our Zapatista brothers and sisters, the CNI, the political prisoners and the disappeared.
We call on everyone to take the public squares of our cities on the 3rd and 4th December and raise our voices to demand:
STOP THE ATTACKS ON THE ZAPATISTA SUPPORT BASES
RESPECT THE CNI,
IDENTIFY THE ASSASSINS,
RESPECT FOR LIFE AND ITS TERRITORIES
FREEDOM FOR OUR POLITICAL PRISONERS
LIVE PRESENTATION OF OUR DISAPPEARED COMPAÑER@S
NO TO THE SYSTEMATIC FEMICIDE OF SEX WORKERS
STOP CALDERON’S WAR
On the 3rd December we are going to mobilize at 4:00 pm at the Revolution Monument in Mexico City.
The Other Campaign, Go!
