Censored News in solidarity with Zapatistas will begin again

By Brenda Norrell
Censored News

In solidarity with the Zapatistas and Subcomandante Marcos, and in honor of Galeano, the murdered Zapatista teacher in La Realidad, Censored News halted publishing in its previous format on May 27, 2014, after 8 years of publishing.

Now, Censored News -- much to the dismay of our opponents -- will continue in a new format.

In the meantime, we have breaking news from Paris, where Dine' Klee Benally has challenged the auction of sacred items. Thank you to Christine Prat for the coverage.

We also have news from Lakotas Owe Aku; 'Free Peltier' photos from Western Shoshone Carl 'Bad Bear' Sampson; the latest from Mohawk Nation News; columns by John Kane, Mohawk; the latest resolution to protect horses from roundup and slaughter on the Navajo Nation, thank you to Leland Grass; and also the voices of Dine' CARE and others protecting Navajoland from the newest poison coal development.

While we create a new name and continue to work on taking Censored News to the next level -- with increased international coverage -- the current breaking news updates are posted in a new blog Indigenous Resistance:

Thanks to each of you for being part of Censored News. There are eight years of archives in Censored News, a labor of love.
We continue, Brenda

And ... Yes, we were there, in La Realidad, not so long ago, in the journeys between here and there, from the deserts to the jungles and back again. And Marcos and the Comandantes came to visit us, just south of the Arizona border.

Subcomandante Marcos, excerpt: " ... Given the above, at 2:08 am on May 25, 2014, from the southeast combat front of the EZLN, I here declare that he who is known as Subcomandante Insurgente Marcos, self-proclaimed “subcomandante of unrustable steel,” ceases to exist.
That is how it is.
Through my voice the Zapatista Army for National Liberation no longer speaks.
Vale. Health and until never or until forever; those who have understood will know that this doesn’t matter anymore, that it never has."
