43 HUGS for THOSE ABSENT, in the FESTIVAL of RESISTANCES and REBELLIONS and the [21st] ANNIVERSARY of the EZLN IN CHIAPAS
Chiapas México #FestivalRyR / January 1, 2015
“The government has them, it took them away. We will only find them with your help,” expressed parents of the Ayotzinapa students, during the sharing (exchange) at the Worldwide Festival of Resistances and Rebellions against Capitalism, in the Zapatista Caracol of Oventik, in the Highlands of Chiapas.
Relatives of the disappeared students thanked the EZLN for having ceded its place in the Festival. They similarly thanked Xochicuautla, Amiltzingo, Iztapalapa and Campeche for yielding to them and for their support. “Our sons have no price, they are the most sacred, we are not going to stop,” they assured.
In his participation the spokesperson for the National Indigenous Congress listed the problems that its members suffer. “We don’t want an alliance, you and we are the same, we have the same pain and the same rage,” he asserted.
In Subcomandante Insurgente Moisés’ voice, the EZLN emphasized that one must no longer trust in the bad governments, which are the overseers and majordomos of the capitalist hacienda (plantation).
“Those above have wanted to deceive us, and if they know how to think and create, think that we are their peons. Enough of that, we said in ‘94, and we governed autonomously,” the Zapatista spokesperson said within the framework of the XXI anniversary of the armed uprising of the Indigenous Chiapanecos.
He asked the CNI to embrace and receive the relatives of the disappeared Ayotzinapa students in their territories, [so that] “the sharing of their word will grow more,” he said. Afterwards, the EZLN as well as the CNI gave a solidarity embrace to each one of the mothers and fathers of the 43 disappeared normalistas.
El Subcomandante Moisés announced that in the coming days “more of our words will come out, which are difficult because they are simple.”
