Solidarity With The Popular Indigenous Council of Oaxaca-Ricardo Flores Magon

The Popular Indigenous Council of Oaxaca Ricardo Flores Magon is an autonomous organization of indigenous and non-indigenous people who ally themselves with the struggle for indigenous rights and social justice all over the world. They work for a world based on self-determination, equality, direct democracy, and mutual aid for all through various projects and campaigns ranging from cooperative businesses, to educational programs, to cultural projects to mobilizing against the oppressive power structure. The hundreds of members of the CIPO-RFM take action in their daily lives to create the new world they carry in their hearts. Since its birth, the CIPO-RFM has suffered terrible repression. Members have been attacked, jailed and even murdered by the government. Currently there are 16 members in prison. With support and pressure from the public, twelve others have been freed.

I was wondering if anyone knows what the differences, if any, are between CIPO-RFM and the Alianza Magonista Zapatista AMZ.

the amz split from cipo-rfm in 2002, and is a more specifically anarchist political organisation than cipo-rfm which is first and formeost an indigenous community organisation, albeit one built on anarchist / magonista lines. as cipo-rfm militant raul gatica put it: "we don't plant the black flag in the street". i'm not sure if there are any deeper divisions between the organisations that lead to the split, but both engage horizontally with zapatista structures.

Thanks Micheal. I never would have gotten that from either of the web sites. If anything I rather suspected CIPO-RFM was the more overtly anarchist of the two.
