To the Supporters of the Sexta and the Other Campaign
To the People of Mexico:

Compañeros and Compañeras:
Brothers and Sisters:

As you already know, our compañera Comandanta Ramona, a member of our political organizational leadership, died on January 6.

Comandanta Ramona, in addition to being our leader, had become a symbol of the struggle, of the struggle built from below and to the left. Her loss has meant great pain for us, and it is very difficult to talk about it. That is why we are unable to say anything else about our Comandanta and about what her absence means, and will mean, to us.

On that very day, January 6, the EZLN’s Sixth Committee (as part of the first stage of our participation in the “Other Campaign”) was in the city of Tonalá, Chiapas when we learned of the great sorrow which came into our hearts. Given the magnitude of the loss, activities were then suspended, and the EZLN’s Sixth Committee delegate returned to the city of San Cristóbal de Las Casas in order to wait there for directions from the CCRI-CG of the EZLN.

While still sorrowing over the death of Comandanta Ramona, the Comandantes and Comandantas met in their respective regions to review, discuss and decide on the Sixth Committee’s national trip. They decided on the following:

They ordered the EZLN’s Sixth Committee, following our Comandanta Ramona’s internment, to resume their trip throughout all the states of the Mexican Republic and to carry out their mission of listening to our compañeros and compañeras of the “Other Campaign” throughout Mexico and the United States, of calling on the people of Mexico to join in with the Sixth Declaration and of uniting those struggles which are by themselves. To this end, some adjustments were made in the trip’s program so that the activities which were suspended in the Coast and Sierra of Chiapas can be carried out.

We respectfully ask supporters in Mexico and the American Union to excuse us for the problems that these changes may cause them. Regarding Chiapas, Quintana Roo and Yucatán, we have already been in contact with their respective committees, and they have, nobly and generously, agreed to make the necessary changes so that, respecting the number of days which had been established for each state, the calendar can be modified.

Dear Irl and others

Sorry to hear about the EZLN bereavement.

But you may be interested in a recent EZLN related posting put up here:

People In Common

Ooh, and I've learned to hyperlink properly

Basta.

This one looks good, came from a nice source, but as it's in Spanish I have little to no idea what it's all about: just wanted to share

Telesur

Oh, and by the way: does anyone in the Parlour think U.SUK are seriously up for the nuking of Iran?

Would like to know what anyone thinks as some folk are pretty concerned about this one

Love,
El Inglesi Subzero Sparkatus

"does anyone in the Parlour think U.S, UK are seriously up for the nuking of Iran?"

Let's put this in a different context, "would two illegitimate governments consider committing an illegitimate act?" And digging further into short-term memory - does this seem familiar?

Gee - I dunno?

It's time we realized that the U.S. is a country without a soul, for all practical purposes it's a corporate state of the living dead. The 'left', or what passes as such here, needs to realize that is has become nothing more than a parasite feeding on a dead corpse. The task ahead is one of containment - we have to prevent this putrid rotting mass of corporate globalization from infecting what's left of the rest of the world. We can no longer attack from within the belly of the beast, the beast is already among the dead, we have to work from the outside now.

Some blog posts can be generated by robots though I think Blooger blocks most. These seem to be the work of human idiots.

Narco News has been posting and translating La Jornada articles by Hermann Bellinghausen. See:
http://narconews.com/ They also have some english videos via slaon chingon:

And Chiapas Indymedia has had good steady coverage of the other campaign (though mostly in Spanish):
