Compañeras, compañeroas, compañeros:

Sisters, brothers, and hermanoas:

I greet you in the name of the children, women, them, elders and men of the Zapatista communities, and I communicate to you the following:

First.- We already have a strong Zapatista airborne company of 177 Zapatistas ready. It is made up in its totality by nativeso f Mayan roots, from the Cho’ol, Tzotzil, Tzeltal, Tojolabal and Castilian languages. We were born in the geography called Mexico. Our ancestors were born and died in these lands. As the Mexican State does not recognize our identity and origin, and tells us that we are “extemporaneous” (so says the Secretary of Foreign Affairs, that we are “extemporaneous” Mexicans), we have decided to baptize this unit of Listening and Word [Escucha y Palabra] as “The Extemporaneous.”

“W” is for Water Protectors taking a stand to protect the water

PARK RAPIDS, Minnesota -- Today women and other Water Protectors from across multiple communities in Minnesota sat together at the Shell River, near Park Rapids, Minnesota, in peaceful prayer to oppose the construction of Line 3, the largest tar sands pipeline ever constructed.

Seven women were arrested and zip-tied this afternoon – including Winona LaDuke, Executive Director of Honor the Earth.

These women represent many others who stand in solidarity with the protection of water across Anishinaabe treaty lands. To date, over 500 people have been arrested expressing opposition to Line 3.

Line 3 will cross underneath the Shell River in five places. The women gathered at the Shell River today are acting in collective care of their communities, standing for the rights of the Shell River, and honoring treaty rights across the waters throughout Anishinaabe territories.

The Zapatistas delegation of 177 remains delayed in Mexico because the government refuses passports to 62 in the delegation

By free means or whatever they are called

Paris France. July 18, 2021. Close to a thousand European organizations and personalities request the French government to expressly respond to the request they officially submitted to let the delegation of the Zapatista Air Force (FAZ) pass in S'lumil K'ajxemk'op ( formerly known as Europe). France's airspace is governed by Emmanuel Macron, an antisocial and repressive president of the republic, a former banker of the Rothschild house and who was barely 16 years old when the Mayan peasant peoples organized into the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN) They took up arms on January 1, 1994 in Chiapas, where they recovered large tracts of agricultural lands in the valleys of the Lacandon jungle and created autonomous municipalities in rebellion.

MNN. July 19, 2021. The Canadian squatters are waiting for a messiah to save them from themselves for murdering millions of indigenous people and children to benefit their greed. So-called politicians want forgiveness, which will never come. There is no justification for the atrocities you have and continue to perform. You can hardly look us in the eye. You murdered us for our land. You will never be redeemed.

There is no happy ending for Canada. You politicians want us all to get together and be one big happy “Canadien” family. We are not Canadians. Reconciliation is a dirty word. It means you pay for your crime, give back all of the stolen property and run the gauntlet. Then you leave. 

For the corporation’s crimes of genocide, murder of the people and rape of the land, you need to just leave turtle island. When you are gone you are somebody else’s problem. You descended on us like an incurable cancer which started to eat, kill and destroy.
