First Across-Borders Encounter-The Other Campaign

by Zezta LA Thursday, Sep. 14, 2006 at 9:44 PM (310) 424-7646

Primer Encuentro Transfronterizo de La Otra Campaña September 15, 16 and 17 of 2006 Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico


First Across-Borders Encounter-The Other Campaign

The organizations, groups, collectives and individuals from both sides of the US-Mexico border who are part of the National Campaign with the Other Politics for a National Program of Leftist Struggle and for a New

Constitution (The Other Campaign), call to friends and adherents and sympathizers of the 6th Declaration of the Lacandon Jungle, to laborers, youth, indigenous people, those in social struggle, intelectuals, artists and all those out there who identify with struggles from the left and from below to participate in the First

Across-Borders Encounter, taking place in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico, on the 15, 16 and 17 of September, 2006.

During the last few years we have contemplated with indignation how our country rapidly deteriorated in practically all areas: the political class was entrenched in a struggle for power and privilege, meanwhile

people are hungry, abused and have had their most elemental civil rights violated; the captains of finance, industry and commerce have tried to steal more and more of the nation, sacrificing and pillaging the unprotected classes, the workers, the women, the students, the children, the elderly, having aligned with foreign capitalists without care for the community.

Innumerable events past and present -- Oaxaca and Atenco are tragic examples - demonstrating on different levels that the government of Mexico sees it easier to strike than to dialogue, to repress than to negotiate, and more comfortable to abuse women rather then confront their adversaries with reason.

We, conveners of the First Across-Borders Encounter of the Other Campaign, repudiate all the practices that privilege violations of all kinds of powerful people that from above rule against those from below, and not by coincidence, those from the left.

These are the very reasons in which we make this initiative in the form of an Encounter of dialogue and action, and as part of the assumed compromise with our brothers and sisters, of country and heart that form part of The Other Campaign.

We hope that the organizations and people that create the struggle concretely for peace, democracy, justice, independence, dignity and the liberty of Mexico unite with us in these workshops in which, not in vain, we remember with respect, the past men and women who gave foundation and future to our nation, being one of the fundamental reasons to be part of this, a very Other Campaign.

Primer Encuentro Transfronterizo de

La Otra Campaña

Las organizaciones, grupos, colectivos y personas en lo individual que a ambos lados de la frontera México-Estados Unidos forman parte de La Campaña Nacional con Otra Política por un Programa Nacional de Lucha de Izquierda y por una Nueva Constitución (La Otra Campaña), convocan a comp@s adherentes y simpatizantes a la Sexta Declaración de la Selva Lacandona, a chambeadores, jóvenes, indígenas, luchadores sociales, intelectuales, artistas, y a todas y todos aquellos que se identifiquen con las luchas desde la izquierda y desde abajo, a participar en el Primer Encuentro Transfronterizo que tendrá lugar en Tijuana, B.C. México, los días 15, 16 y 17 de septiembre de 2006.

Durante los últimos años hemos contemplado con indignación como nuestra patria padece de un deterioro acelerado en prácticamente todos los ámbitos: la clase política se encuentra enfrascada en una lucha feroz por el poder y los privilegios, mientras la gente padece hambre, abusos, y violaciones a sus más elementales derechos civiles y humanos; los capitanes de la banca, la industria y el comercio se afanan en saquear más y más los bienes de la Nación, sacrificando sin reparo a las clases desprotegidas, a los obreros, a las mujeres, a los estudiantes, a los niños, a los ancianos, y se alinean con los capitales extranjeros sin que les importen los padeceres del pueblo.

Innumerables hechos pasados y presentes –Oaxaca y Atenco son trágicos ejemplos- demuestran que a los diferentes niveles de gobierno de México les es más fácil golpear que dialogar, más socorrido el método de la represión que el de la negociación, les resulta más cómodo abusar de las mujeres que enfrentarse con la razón a sus adversarios.

Nosotras y nosotros, convocantes al Primer Encuentro Transfronterizo de La Otra Campaña, repudiamos todas las prácticas que privilegian las violaciones de todo tipo que los poderosos de arriba ejercen en contra de quienes somos de abajo y, no por accidente, de izquierda.

Estas son las razones que nos hacen lanzar esta iniciativa de encuentro, de diálogo y de acción, como parte del compromiso asumido con nuestras y nuestros hermanos de patria y corazón que también forman parte de La Otra Campaña.

Esperamos que las organizaciones y personas que en su quehacer cotidiano y concreto luchan por la paz, la democracia, la justicia, la independencia, la dignidad, y la libertad plena del pueblo mexicano, se unan a nosotr@s en estas jornadas en las que, no por nada, recordamos con respeto como en el pasado hombres y mujeres dignos supieron darle cimiento y futuro a nuestra Nación, una de las razones fundamentales de ser de ésta, una muy Otra Campaña.
