CIPO-RFM tour of Ontario and Québec

The "Ricardo Flores Magon" Popular Indigenous Council of Oaxaca (CIPO-RFM) currently has members touring Ontario (dates below) and will continue their speaking tour in Québec in November.

The "Ricardo Flores Magon" Popular Indigenous Council of Oaxaca (CIPO-RFM) is an organization that connects twenty indigenous communities in the state of Oaxaca, Mexico. Their mission is to support the reconstitution and free association of indigenous peoples through autonomy and direct action. Specific goals include the promotion and defense of social, cultural and political human rights including collective and individual land rights. Other goals include: supporting communities to self-organise in an autonomous and libertarian manner, initiating sustainable, self-sufficiency projects that form part of holistic community development among indigenous communities, always respecting local culture and ecosystems, actively defending and conserving land, nature and resources.

They chose to use the name of Ricardo Flores Magon because he was indigenous, fought for freedom, and all though he was from Oaxaca, his heart, thoughts and work was for the liberations of all people of the world. Adopting Magon´s principles represents that they fight without searching for material riches or personal benefit but rather to banish arrogance, authoritarianism, and lies. It also represents they aren´t seeking power over others, nor imposing ourselves on anyone. “Using mutual support as our base, solidarity, direct action, and autonomy as our path to liberation.”
