the Zapatistas Posted June 2, 2010 Report Share Posted June 2, 2010 [i]"In this March for Indigenous Dignity, we the Zapatistas have seen a part of the map of the national tragedy that doesn't get on prime time radio or TV. Any one of those present can argue that that isn't worth anything at all, and that a march was not necessary for people to realize that the Mexico of the downtrodden is great in number and in poverty. But I do not come to speak to you of indexes of poverty, of constant repression or of deceit. On this march we the Zapatistas have also seen part of the Mexico of rebels; we have seen them see themselves and see others. This, and nothing else, is dignity. The downtrodden of Mexico, particularly the indigenous, speak to us a history of struggle and resistance which comes from far away and which thrives in the today of every place. Yes, but it is also a history that looks forward."[/i][right]- Subcomandante Marcos, Zapatista Army of National Liberation[/right] IN ASSEMBLY, the delegates of the Assembly of the Community of Chiapas hereby request formal meeting with our neighboring states.
