At the end of every day a new crack opens, each time a little wider, in the walls that confine our brother and compa Francisco. One day soon, the pressure on them will ensure that these walls will fall, both inside and outside. It is something simple but beautiful, and it gives us much pleasure to share it with you.
We hope it may serve as small flag in this worldwide struggle which has the heart as its homeland, and solidarity as its territory…. Let us today honor Francisco by struggling more keenly for his immediate and unconditional release. Es algo muy sencillo pero bonito, y nos da mucho gusto compartirlo con ustedes. It is appropriate to point out that the prisoner himself had stated that he would not accept being admitted to this hospital, where he was secluded without adequate medical care.
The above letter, directed to the ministers Juan N. To Civil Society in Mexico and in the world: In response to the global demand for justice incited by the recent attacks on the Zapatista Support Base Communities BAZ carried out by the bad government and its armed death packs, it is with anguished and troubled hearts that we write these words, which are for your immediate consideration. As such, our compas from the Juntas de Buen Gobierno Good Government Councils and the affected communities have issued numerous denouncements and have urgently called for the mobilization of global solidarity actions targeting all levels of the bad government of Mexico.
If those from above believe that they can continue waging their violent war against our Zapatista sisters and brothers without repercussions, they are deeply mistaken. This time around, the dignified peoples of the world will have their say. Before the growing global demand for justice and an end to the current and possible attacks, and in order to expand the reach of the ongoing activities taking place as part of the current First Phase of our Campaign: As you will understand, these dates were chosen for their great significance in the history of indigenous struggles throughout the world: If you would like to join our efforts and accept our proposal, please let us know as soon as possible by sending an e-mail to:.
First and foremost, we would like to thank all the people who are continuing to give light and life to this worldwide campaign, which for over a month now we have been creating and shaping together.
Thank you for sharing this path with us and for continuing to walk alongside us. More and more people are finding each other every day, seeking and meeting in the darkness and obscurity of lies and indifference which those from above have constructed in order to keep us divided. Fumbling in the dark, we continue to meet each other, and searching, day after day, for a way to break through into the light. As our ancestors say, our collective words contain the essence of life on this planet: To prevent us from joining hands and rising from this darkness, those from above have committed to douse out all the lights radiating from dignified people.
This is why they are deploying their strategies of violence and destruction, and are attacking, imprisoning, repressing, assaulting, violating, robbing, silencing, and lying to us. This is also why those from above, those who have created this long night, have chosen as their main target the indigenous peoples of the world, who have made such significant contributions to the struggle against the darkness.
Faced with this threat of planetary extinction, we must mobilize urgently to defend each and every light that illuminates our path towards the construction of another possible world. And as the True Word was and is the first form of light, it is vital that we defend those words which Old Antonio tells us were the first three in every language: It is no coincidence that these three words cannot be found in the governments, jails, schools, mass media, or the other institutions serving the privileges of those from above.
Nor is it a coincidence that these same three words are alive, in many different ways, among the dignified people from below, especially the indigenous people of Mexico and the world.
While those from above continue to attack and destroy these lights, we will continue to defend and create more lights, more solutions, more worlds. Even though those from above are using the lies which give the night its darkness to keep us divided, in our hearts we carry that which makes the light shine… This is called truth. In order to actively support the defense of the light that shines from the Zapatistas, an exemplary indigenous movement, whose struggle has always been for and with both indigenous and non-indigenous peoples alike, we call on and invite everyone once again to join this campaign, and to carry out its second phase, which will consist of a month of strategic and direct actions.
Bellinghausen, Hermann [WorldCat Identities]
During these days of action, compas, let us unite, honor, remember, and support all the Zapatista communities and in particular, the actdal ones, as they are presently under siege:.

For the photos seE: Among these projects is a renewed government effort to delimit Natural Protected Areas within the Lacandon Jungle, in order to generate carbon credits to be sold to California companies. They began carbon retention there by offering monetary compensation to protect trees and avoid felling them.
Initially, the California state government, led by Arnold Schwarzenegger, made one payment, but following the economic crisis there, further payments were suspended. The Chiapas government then used its own funds instead.
The program will only provide compensation using dubious verification methods that portend the privatization of forests. These attacks stem from the current wave of government repression against bellinghauaen Zapatista movement, which encompasses thousands of indigenous communities in resistance throughout the Mexican state of Chiapas.
