Enero Zapatista 2023
To the Adherents of the Sixth Declaration of the Lacandon Jungle in the United States:
To the networks of rebellion, resistance, support, and solidarity with the EZLN and the CNI:
To all those who resist capitalism from below and to the left and feel inspired by the EZLN’s struggle:
Enero Zapatista is a month-long series of politically and culturally conscious events carried out over the last 19 years on unceded Kumeyaay land (otherwise known as San Diego, California) that commemorates the Zapatista’s uprising in January 1994.
The theme for this year’s Enero Zapatista is….
What is Community Justice?
Vivos se los llevaron, vivos los queremos! Alive they were taken, alive we want them back!
Ya no queremos velorios! We no longer want any wakes!
The above are common slogans among the movements of families and supporters of all those who have disappeared, been assassinated as water or land defenders, as students, as victims of femicides within the narco/state of Mexico and in other countries dominated by capitalist markets that displace millions from Indigenous communities worldwide. This exhibit at Centro Cultural de la Raza will provide a timeline since the AMLO administration took office in Mexico and honor all those that have lost their lives voicing their protest towards the so-called 4th Transformation megaprojects of death (los projectos de Muerte) and those that have lost their lives unjustly as a consequence of narco-state violence and patriarchal structures that continue to discriminate and oppress vulnerable populations. We hope to reveal all those wounds that have not been healed and continue to persist in these current times, not just in Mexico but all over the world, so long as we live in a capitalist society where human life is not valued. We stand with all Indigenous peoples of these lands against the megaprojects of death.
We invite you to reflect on what community justice looks like here in Kumeyaay territory, in your local neighborhoods, past hometowns, and beyond. We hope this theme inspires you to connect past, present, and future stories and create art that can help bring light to spaces and people that may need justice, healing to yourself and your community, and inspiring paths to collective community justice. Here on the local level, we hope folks can bring forth proposals for dialogue about how, where, and by whom justice is determined while living in a capitalist state.
We, the Sixth in Kumeyaay territory, condemn the AMLO government and all bad governments, past, present, and future, that impose megaprojects of death and continue to displace millions of people, forcing them to migrate globally.
We demand a stop to the extracting of natural resources and protection for all natural elements that belong to our Mother Earth.
