Communique from some communities of the CNI in Chiapas in solidarity with Ostula and Xochicuautla


To the EZLN
To the CNI
To the alternative media
To civil society
To the national and international Sixth

Compañeros and compañeras of the EZLN and the CNI, we are communities of the CNI from the state of Chiapas, and organizations and collectives adherent to the Sixth Declaration of the Lacandon Jungle. We send a combative embrace with which we say that here we continue organizing ourselves from our respective trenches.

We want to share with you that it hurts us very much that the bad government is cutting down the sacred forests of our brothers and sisters of the community of San Francisco Xochicuautla for their capitalist interests, but we say that while we are far away and cannot follow the call they made ​​to come to the camp, from here we will take care of our mother earth and remain aware of your struggle.

Brothers and sisters of the rebel community of Santa Maria Ostula, the news has come to us of what is happening in your recovered lands, it fills us with rage that they have killed our son Idilberto Reyes Garcia, and our compañeros who resist the many heads of capitalist hydra, and that they have taken prisoner our compañero Cemei Verdía, commander of the community police of Ostula, we tell you not to be discouraged, you are not alone and from here you have our support.

Compas from la Garrucha, communities in resistance, we know what it is like to live with harassment in our daily life and the anger that it gives you when they do not let you live in peace.

Compañeros and compañeras of the EZLN and the CNI, from our communities we say that we will continue to organize together and to walk together towards the freedom of autonomy, we reaffirm ourselves as indigenous peoples defenders of the mother earth who we will continue to protect from the mega-projects that see her as something you can sell and plunder and destroy without any respect for life. We continue resisting so as to remain who we are and to improve our ways of organising to build a world fit for our children who are the future of our indigenous cultures.

Step by step we work towards a society where there are no more prisons and there is true justice and consciousness of building for life and not for death, and if we work together we will achieve freedom for all our brothers kidnapped by the state.

Brothers and sisters of the EZLN and the CNI, we feel proud and happy to form part of this collective dream, we embrace each and every one of your struggles and resistances which are our example and hope to continue resisting, so we do not feel alone and it motivates us to fight when we think of you who are our mirrors and as such we are reflected in you and feel your joys and sorrows and make them ours, and from pain comes struggle and resistance to keep walking together, more united despite the distance to achieve respect for our rights and indigenous cultures.

We know that the companies and megaprojects are not acting alone, but with the complicity of the 3 levels of the bad government.


– We denounce the decree issued by Enrique Peña Nieto to expropriate the land of our brothers from San Francisco Xochicuautla, ignoring convention 169 of the ILO, thus violating the right to prior and informed consultation of the indigenous peoples of Mexico.

– We denounce the complicity between drug traffickers and the government.

– We demand respect for Mother Earth.

– We demand the immediate release of our compañero Cemeí Verdía.

– We demand justice for the murder by the Mexican army of Idilberto Reyes García.

– We demand an end to the harassment by paramilitaries and the 3 levels of bad government of the Zapatista autonomous municipalities and communities in resistance.

– We demand the immediate release of our Yaqui compañero Mario Luna.

– We demand the live appearance of our 43 missing compañeros from Ayotzinapa and justice for our 3 compañeros massacred by the state on the night of September 26, 2014 in Iguala Guerrero.

– We demand respect for the Community police of Ostula


The communities of:
