To Whom It May Concern:

DID YOU HEAR IT?

It’s the sound of their world ending.

It’s that of ours resurging.

The day that was the day, was night.

The night will be the day that will be the day.

DEMOCRACY!

LIBERTY!

JUSTICE!

From the mountains of the Mexican Southeast.

Thousands of tourists from around the world gathered early this morning throughout Mexico´s southeastern state of Chiapas in anticipation of the end of the world. Instead, what they saw were tens of thousands of masked Mayan indigenous peoples led by the Zapatista National Liberation Army descending from the highlands in silent marches. They temporarily took over at least three cities. FSRN’s Tim Russo brings us more from Chiapas.
Mexico´s Mayan indigenous peoples converged this morning on San Cristobal de las Casas for the first time in more than a year. Today´s march, explains Journalist Jose Gil Olmos, marks a symbolic moment where Zapatistas are silently saying that end of the Mayan calendar marks the beginning of a new era.

Fire Dog Lake reports
Lorenzo Tlacaelel Lambertino, a blogger originally from Oaxaca, writes:


EZLN groups in this action have gathered by foot and by bus into the municipal centers of Ocosingo, San Cristobal de Las Casas, Las Margaritas, and Palenque among others. Preliminary estimates project a total possible mobilization of 30 to 50 thousand people from the Los Altos and Jungle regions of Chiapas. The action was nonviolent and extremely orderly. Men, women, and children wore black hoods covering their face, with a red bandana around their necks and green, white, and red ribbons, well known as the three colors of Mexico’s flag. ‘Subcommandante’ Marcos, the famous and outspoken public relations officer for the EZLN, did not make a presence.
