Call for 2nd Global Action Against the War on EZLN, the People and Life: Samir Vive

The networks of resistance and rebellion, collectives, organizations and individuals adhering to the Sixth Declaration of the Lacandon Jungle invite to participate in the Second Global Action against the War on Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN), the Peoples and Life : “Samir Vive,” given the escalation of violence against the autonomous communities.

The Global Action is a response of the organizations to the increase in “violence, repression and paramilitary attacks by the Regional Organization of Coffee Growers of Ocosingo, ORCAO, against the EZLN support bases in the Autonomous Municipality ‘Lucio Cabañas’ in Ocosingo.”

They added that the Global Action will also demand justice for the recent attacks by the paramilitary group “Paz y Justicia” in the Tila Ejido [communal land], Chiapas, which left at least one dead and several injured with firearms.

The day, they explained, will begin on September 16 and conclude on September 20, “because we do not forget, we do not forgive and we do not betray the memory of our brother Samir Flores Soberanes, whose life was taken by oppressors for defending Mother Earth and fighting against mega-projects of death” on February 20, 2019.

“They will change the Foreman, the Mayordomos and Caporales [overseers of hacienda], but the Farmer is still the same,” EZLN

In the face of the escalation of violence, repression and paramilitary attacks by the Regional Organization of Coffee Growers of Ocosingo, ORCAO, against the EZLN support bases in the Autonomous Municipality “Lucio Cabañas” in Ocosingo in recent days and the recent attacks by the group paramilitary “Paz y Justicia” in the Tila Ejido, which has resulted in the murder of comrade Pedro Alejandro Jiménez Pérez and injuries with firearms of comrades Medardo Pérez Jiménez, Ángel Vázquez Ramírez and Jaime Lugo Pérez, members, in addition, of the CNI-CIG.

These attacks are part of a counterinsurgency plan designed from government spheres to promote the proliferation of paramilitary groups also linked to organized crime and under the auspices of financial capital that, in a frank declaration of war on the EZLN, seeks to end the Autonomies of the Zapatista Indigenous Peoples and Communities, the organization and resistance of the peoples, neighborhoods, tribes, nations and communities of the National Indigenous Congress-Indigenous Government Council, who oppose the imposition of mega-projects of death, such as the Mayan Train, the Interoceanic Corridor, the Santa Lucía International Airport, the Morelos Comprehensive Project, the Dos Bocas Refinery and the militarization of the country.

Brothers and Sisters.

Various groups, networks of resistance and rebellion, organizations and individuals adhering to the Sixth Declaration of the Lacandon Jungle, in Mexico and the world, have decided to initiate this 2nd Global Action, on September 16 to denounce that the celebration of Independence from those above; it represents, for those below, the dispossession of Life, the militarization of the Territories and the war against the Peoples; faced with this, we say that: WE HAVE NOTHING TO CELEBRATE ON INDEPENDENCE DAY, other than the “other cry of the other independence that we are raising” SCIM [Subcomandante Insurgente Moisés]. We will close these activities on September 20, because we do not forget, we do not forgive and we do not betray the memory of our brother Samir Flores Soberanes, whose life was taken for defending Mother Earth and fighting against the Megaprojects of death.

Finally, within the framework of this 2nd Global Action and in the midst of the serious public health crisis that has caused the COVID-19 Pandemic, not only does the economic crisis worsen and the unemployment rate increase, but there is no medium-term signs of a speedy economic recovery; on the contrary, we see a serious crisis regarding Human Rights and a systematic violation of individual guarantees; the criminalization of social protest is institutionalized as a State policy, and there is an excessive increase in acts of repression by the state or federal security authorities; such is the case of the comrades who were repressed for taking some headquarters of the CNDH [National Human Rights Commission] in the states and CDMX [Mexico City] to demand an end to gender violence and femicidal violence in our country. Likewise, the recent repressive acts against the normalistas of Tiripetío Michoacán; paramilitary and organized crime attacks against CNI organizations, such as the CIPOG-EZ, and on the eve of the six-year anniversary of the forced disappearance of the 43 normalistas from Ayotzinapa, there is no Truth and no Justice for our brothers. #FueElEstado and #NosFaltan43. AYOTZINAPA, September 26, join and participate, National March 16:00 Hrs., From the Angel of Independence to the Zócalo

Sincerely

Zapata Vive, the Fight Continues!

Long live the Zapatista Army of National Liberation

For the Integral Reconstruction of Our Peoples

Long live #CNI, Long live #CIG, Long live #EZLN

No to Mega Projects of Death
