Zapatistas' Marcos: 'The seed of something new'


"Its not just our duty and our hope in this country, but in the continent and the rest of the world. If in some way Zapatismo has achieved a synchrony of global sympathy, its not because we have made certain use of the word, or because of the unquestionable heroism of the indigenous communities, but because from this moment it was proposing an alternative, the seed of something else. And this is what the Other Campaign means to do: name the enemy, capital, and the ally of this enemy, the political class. We intend the defeat of this government and the destruction of capital. And then, like someone said once, we will have only just won the right to start over but we will have to start where one always has to start, from below."—Subcomandante Insurgente Marcos
