They send a message to the world: “With autonomy we fight for life and territory”


On December 2, 2016, in the community of Alacatlatzala, Guerrero, an indigenous and popular armed group was founded, with its principal goal being to manage their own security and that of their families, lands and territories, due to the immense and increasing violence and extortion these communities exist in, far removed from “progress” and the assistance of the Mexican government. As such, under the principles of autonomy and popular sovereignty, dozens of indigenous Na’ Savi people have taken up arms - though they clarify that it is symbolic – in order to create a collective rupture with organized crime, municipal police and the army, who have led the way in trampling the life and peace of this and other communities that form the Regional Coordinator of Justice & Security and the Citizen & Popular Police (CRSJ-PCP), also formed on a December 2, but in 2012, December 2 being the date when teacher and revolutionary Lucio Cabañas Barrientos was murdered.

Let’s help this struggle, spreading their word worldwide! Long live the autonomy of our peoples!

Nasce un gruppo armato indigeno sui monti del Guerrero
by Ruptura Colectiva - Ruptura Colectiva

Comunicato diramato a livello mondiale: “In autonomia lottiamo per la vita e per il nostro territorio”

Il 2 dicembre 2016, nel territorio di Alcatlatzala, stato del Guerrero, è stato fondato un gruppo indigeno armato con lo scopo prioritario di gestire la propria sicurezza e quella delle loro famiglie, proteggere le terre ed i territori, contro la crescente ed immensa violenza e contro l'estorsione che affliggono queste comunità, ben lontane dal "progresso" e dall'assistenza millantata dal governo messicano. Per cui, sulla base dei principi di autonomia e sovranità popolare, decine di persone della popolazione indigena Na’ Savi hanno preso le armi - sebbene abbiano chiarito che si tratta di in gesto simbolico – allo scopo di creare una rottura collettiva col crimine organizzato, con la polizia municipale e con l'esercito che hanno compromesso la vita e la pace di questa e di altre comunità che compongono il Coordinamento Regionale per la Giustizia e la Sicurezza e la Polizia Popolare Cittadina (CRSJ-PCP), anch'essi costituiti il 2 dicembre, però nel 2012, dato che il 2 dicembre ricorre l'anniversario dell'uccisione del maestro e rivoluzionario Lucio Cabañas Barrientos.

Aiutiamo questa lotta, diffondiamola nel mondo! Lunga vita all'autonomia delle nostre popolazioni!

This article is an anarchist response to the apologies of Settler governments in |Canada and Australia.

It is written after the apogee of the Oaxaca rebellion, but with the certainty that this movement is not over, that in one form or another the struggle that began in 2006 will continue. Our analysis is presented in the hope that will shed some light on Oaxaca before the uprising is mythologized (by anti-authoritarians); distorted (by all the Leninist vanguards who, in their arrogance, are eager to impart their stern “lessons” to the “masses” in Oaxaca); or simply fades away, far from the glare of the proverbial media spotlight.

January 22nd, 2009

The Union of Organizations of the Sierra Juarez of Oaxaca (UNOSJO) - a longtime partner of Grassroots International based in Mexico - denounced a recently conducted study in the Zapotec region by U.S. geography scholar Peter Herlihy. Prof. Herlihy failed to mention that he received funding from the Foreign Military Studies Office of the U.S. Armed Forces. The failure to obtain full, free and prior informed consent is a violation of the rights of indigenous communities as codified in the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples adopted by the United Nations in 2007. In addition, UNOSJO fears that this in-depth geographical mapping of indigenous communities may be used in some harmful manner by the military.
