OF THE DAYS OF STRUGGLE
“ZAPATA LIVES, SAMIR LIVES, THE STRUGGLE CONTINUES”
100 YEARS AFTER THE ASSASSINATION OF GENERAL EMILIANO ZAPATA SALAZAR
Considering that the neoliberal regime killed our brother Samir Flores Soberanes; we don’t know if it was the government, the entrepreneurs, their criminal cartels or, the three together;
Observing that the self-named “Fourth Transformation” started with Miguel de la Madrid Hurtado, was deepened with Carlos Salinas de Gortari, continued its war of conquest with Ernesto Zedillo Ponce de León, Vicente Fox Quezada, Felipe Calderón Hinojosa and Enrique Peña Nieto; and it now continues with the cross-term project of Andrés Manuel López Obrador and the Partido Movimiento de Regeneración Nacional (National Regeneration Movement Party). For the original peoples the only “real change” is the increase of lies, deceits, persecutions, threats, incarcerations, dispossession, murders, trickery and contempt, human exploitation and the destruction of nature; in sum: the annihilation of the collective life that we are;
Assuming that the neoliberal government that Andrés Manuel López Obrador heads has its sight set on our peoples and territories, where, with the National Institute of Indigenous Peoples, it extends a network of cooptation and disorganization, which opens the way to a war that has an industrial name, made of projects and violence, which, supported in the military corporations and in the coming National Guard, expands a dark web of death and destruction into the country’s original peoples;
Reiterating our firm opposition to the neoliberal policies of the old and new governments, our opposition to the consultations, whatever they’re called, which have no other purpose than the dispossession of our territories; our opposition to mining, to the damming of our rivers, to the construction of superhighways, to the accelerated real estate speculation of our lands, to the neoliberal death megaprojects like the Morelos Integral Project, the Trans-Isthmus Corridor or the Maya Train;
Remembering that the struggle headed by General EMILIANO ZAPATA SALAZAR and the Liberation Army of the South and Center represented and continue representing the interests and aspirations of our peoples and of millions of exploited in Mexico and in the world; and that this coming April 10 completes 100 YEARS OF THE COWARDLY ASSASSINATION OF GENERAL EMILIANO ZAPATA SALAZAR on the part of the political regime that, despite its “transformations,” continues governing us to this day:
