Occupy the Mexican Consulate in NYC to stop the deadly attacks on the Zapatistas and their teachers
< http://lists.occupy.net/lists/arc/s17-discussion>

Are you coming? Let us know!

WHAT Non-violent protest to stop the paramilitary deadly attacks on the Zapatista autonomous communities who are resisting the predator corporate power, defending the land, the natural resources of the jungle, and building a horizontal, leaderless community for a world where many worlds fit.

As Sub-Commander Moises highlights, ``we will not respond with violence`` .

WHERE Mexican Consulate
27 E 39th St, New York, New York 10016

WHEN This is a 2-day occupation, from THURSDAY 19 at 3 pm to FRIDAY 20t at 5 pm. New York Civil Rights Legendary Attorney Norman Siegel has agreed to be a legal observer and advisor for this Occupation. You can come anytime and stay for as long as you can!

WHO An initiative originated in the heart of our fellow John Penley,
[ facebook.com/john.r.penley ; facebook.com/john.penley.3 -t.] growing in the hearts of many others, with the help of the
OWS Zapatista Solidarity Network. [ facebook.com/OccupySolidarityNetwork ]

In response to the May 2, 2014 paramilitary attack on the Zapatista community of La Realidad and the killing of community member Companero Galeano, over 2000 organizations, intellectuals, and activists from North America and beyond – includding Mumia Abu-Jamal, Noam Chomsky, Angela Davis, Junot Diaz, Cornel West, Emory Douglas, the IWW, the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, and many, many others –“ denounced this violence and called for a week of action in solidarity with the pain and rage of the Zapatista communities.

During the week of May 18-24, companer@s in solidarity in more than 40 cities across the world responded to this call. Their actions, reported to the Anattackonusall.org website, circulated through the corresponding facebook and twitter account, andcovered in the free and independent media in English, Spanish, Greek, and Italian, included: demonstrations at consulates and corporations, in the streets, and in public spaces; conferences and panel discussions on Zapatismo and autonomy; silent marches and memorials; readings, info sessions, teach-ins, and study groups; art installations, video and banner production, concerts, poetry readings, and Zapatista documentary screenings; fund-raisers, flyer distribution, e-graffiti actions, and encampments, and email and phone campaigns to Mexican Consulates across the US as well as to the office of Manuel Velasco, Governor of Chiapas, and more.

 Do you want to help re-build the school that was destroyed in La Realidad Autonomous community?

``The capitalist government at its three levels [federal, state and local] destroyed the autonomous school and the autonomous clinic and the hose from where the water comes and, with that, they want to put an end to the Zapatista fight. Zapatista people don`t forget that the government destroyed their first community Aguascalientes, and then Zapatista women and men built other five Aguascalientes. And when they destroyed the humble houses of our MAREZ authorities (Municipios Autónomos Rebeldes Zapatistas) in 1998 (…) the MAREZ kept working following their path and stronger” - Subcommander Insurgent Moisés.
"We want to let all our comrades in Mexico and the world know that we have opened a bank account in the name of our dear compañera Fernanda Navarro, so deposits of money can be made to the campaign for the reconstruction of the school and clinic that were actually destroyed by the beast in the service of big capital" (See the picture with the bank information if you want to make a donation)

Thank you for your solidarity!

For a World where Many Worlds fit, not only Wall Street`s World!

OWS Zapatista
