Rompiendo el cerco

ROMPIENDO EL CERCO POLÍTICO. (ingles abajo)

El grupo indígena kunkaak se encuentra localizado al noroeste de la

República Mexicana en las costas del Golfo de California. Se le denomina

SERIS que significa en la lengua YAQUI hombres de la arena, ellos se

autodenominan KUNKAAK que significa en su lengua "gente". El territorio

KUNKAAK comprende un área aproximada de 211.000 hectáreas al nivel del

mar, y esta integrado por una parte continental y por la isla tiburón, que

mide aprox. 30 por 40 kms, es la isla mas grande de México.

Su clima es desértico y su medio de sobrevivencia es la pesca, nunca

han utilizado la agricultura; solo la recolección de frutos y semillas

del desierto, asi como de plantas medicinales y de uso. Actualmente

viven en dos comunidades, Punta chueca, que se encuentra en la parte

costera a 30 kms al norte de Bahía de Kino y a 130 kms de Hermosillo,

capital del Estado de Sonora México, y Desemboque que se encuentra a

60 kms al norte de punta chueca en la parte costera, en las dos

comunidades son alrededor de 1000 miembros.

La comunidad indígena seri, durante muchas generaciones ha resistido la

presion que los grupos de poder ejercen para arrebatarles lo que ha

quedado de su territorio.

El pasado viernes 25 de marzo las comunidades indígenas seris de

Puntachueca y desemboque(sonora), fueron agredidas a balazos por elementos

de la policia judicial de Sonora y por miembros de la agencia federal de

investigaciones(AFI). En la comunidad de Puntachueca dispararon contra 20

niños y tres mujeres que se encontraban alrededor de una tienda, en la

comunidad de desemboque, agentes de la AFI dispararon contra la población

desde un helicóptero.

Esta acción represiva se viene a sumarse a las tantas padecidas por esta

"nación indígena" que se niega a perder su historia y su territorio desde

tiempos inmemorables. Cabe mencionar que los coom'cac (seris) habitan un

territorio muy codiciado por ricos inversionistas extranjeros y locales

que favorecidos por la globalización económica, encontraron una serie de

argumentos "legales" para intentar apoderarse de esa zona rica en recursos

naturales, específicamente de la isla del tiburón (la mas grande "de

México") , la cual pretenden acondicionarla al megaproyecto de la escalera

náutica en el golfo de California, convirtiendo esta isla semi-virgen en

un centro de atracción turística con hoteles y restaurantes de lujo. Las

comunidades seris han resistido durante varias generaciones los intentos

de desalojo del gobierno de sonora y del gobierno federal, pues ese

territorio representa la raíz cultural e histórica de una cultura

milenaria antiquísima (una de las mas antiguas del mundo) que ahora esta

apunto de desaparecer por la ambición de los que sustentan el poder

político y económico.



Ante esta situación hacemos una invitación a (FZLN),grupos, personas u

organizaciones independientes, para romper el cerco político con el cual

se margina a las comunidades seris, participando en una caravana que

realizaremos el dia 29 de junio para realizar el siguiente plan de accion:

1) salida el dia 29 de la cd de tijuana B.C., y llegar a la cd de

hermosillo en la mañana, el recorrido hacia Hermosillo es de 12 horas

aproximadamente y de hermosillo a la comunidad es de 2 horas.

2) Llegada al dia jueves 30 de junio a la comunidad, instalación del

campamento y cocina colectiva.

3) Presenciar por la tarde- noche la ceremonia del año nuevo con danzas y

cantos propios de la tradición cultural seri.

4) Viernes 1 de julio.- video documentales de la resistencia de los

pueblos del sur de México(zapatistas) y el continente y talleres de

medicina natural.

5) Sabado 2 de julio.- Entrevistas y reportajes a miembros de la comunidad

sobre la problemática que padece la población. Reunion con la comunidad

para analizar entre todos la solidaridad que se le puede ofrecer a la

lucha de los seris por conservar su territorio.

1) Regreso a la cd de TJ el dia domingo en la mañana.



Nota: El plan de actividades esta abierto a nuevas propuestas avisadas con

tiempo. Interesan trabajos sobre defensa de los derechos humanos, defensa

del medio ambiente y medios de comunicación independiente.

Si estas interesado en participar en la caravana o si deseas proponer tu trabajo, comunicate

a este correo.

On Friday March 25th, the Seri indigenous communities of Puntachueca and Desemboque (Located 2 hours west of Hermosillo Sonora), where attacked with gun shot by elements of the judiciary police of Sonora and by members of the Federal Agency of Investigation (AFI). In the community of Puntachueca the shots where directed to a group of 20 children and 3 women who where standing outside a market store. In the community of Desemboque, agents of the AFI opened fire from a helicopter, with no motive for such an operation. The results of this operation left one of the community members with 3 gun wounds to the chest, for he was wearing an anti-bullet vest that saved his life. A women was injured by an agent that hit her on the nose while forcing his was into her home, the injury left a scare on the woman’s nose.

The community has been threaten with the invasion of 1500 elements of Mexican army into there community. This paramilitary attack is one of many threats that this “indigenous nation” has received for defending their history and territory since unmemorable times. It is important to note that the coom’cac (seris) inhabit a covet territory by rich foreign and local investors, who are favored with economic globalization. These investors have found a series of “legal” arguments to try to take over this wealthy zone in natural resources, especially the Isla Tiburon or “Shark Island” (largest one in Mexico). This Island is pretended to be conditioned for a mega project of “La Escalera Nautica” in the Golf California, converting the semi-virgin island into a tourist attraction with luxurious hotels and restaurants.

The Seri communities have resisted for many generations the dislodge attempts by the Government of Sonora and the federal government as well. This territory represents the cultural and historic roots of one of the most ancient cultures of the world, and now it is about to disappear due to the ambition of those with economic and political power.

This is a delicate situation, for this, without a doubt represents the danger of a social explosion of great magnitude. Not to long ago, members of another indigenous community, Mayo of Agiabampo 2, where repress for defending the last of communal lands in Sonora.

In the city of Tijuana we received a message from the Seri community asking for solidarity. One of the members of the Zapatista front was sent to the communities with whatever money available at the time, so he could confirm and broaden the information on the occurred, as well as ask what exactly did they need help in.

The compañero who visited the community was accompanied by a correspondent of the Jornada newspaper of Sonora. A video report was taken up by the two visitors, in this report the community said they still did not know why this operation was made. The community was attacked without an explanation (although the motives are obvious), later some members of the community asked for an explanation to the authorities. The authorities deny any authorization to the police forces, who attempted against the community. as a result of this operation 2 members of the Seri communities where injured and a helicopter was shot down, injuring the leg of the pilot who was on board.
