Campamento Zapatista

by Stop The Genocide Campaign Thursday, Feb. 01, 2007 at 1:06 PM
comisiondeapoyo@gmail.com (951) 288-8319

The Mexican government has a long history of mistreating and ommiting the voices of its internal indigenous population. One nearby example is the genocide of the Cucapá of Mexicali, who have been denied fishing permits, eventhough they have been fishing in this valley for over 9,000 years; indeed before the area was even called Mexico.

Campaign for Dignity and Survival:


Stop the Genocide of our Indigenous People's


Saturday, Feb 3, 2007


at the Space Ark Gallery


106 S. 58th st. Los Angeles, CA 90042


Beginning at 6:00 pm



The Cucapá, an Indigenous people of Mexicali, have been denied fishing permits, even though they have been fishing in their valley for over 9,000 years; indeed, even before this area was considered Mexico.

Fishing is part of their ancestral traditions and is their only form of support. On the other hand, commercial fisherman have no problems obtaining fishing permits.

During the upcoming fishing season, which runs from February to May, the Sixth Delegation of the EZLN, along with adherents of “The Other Campaign” will set up camp in the Mexicali dessert community of the Mayor Cucapa, and will join the local community in exercizing thier rights to fish in a peaceful, civil disobedient campaign for social change and justice.

Understanding that adherents and supporters will be traveling from all over the world to jointhis camp of resistance to support the Cucapa struggle, La Otra en el Otro Lado, a collective of adherents from San Diego, Orange County, Riverside, Los Angeles, Oxnard, Santa Barbara and Watsonville have committed to provide resources to help sustain the camp.







HOW YOU CAN HELP PUT A STOP TO THIS INJUSTICE!


• Join the Resistance Encampment & Support the Community.


• Set up a collection site on your school campus, house, place of employment, meeting area etc. Contact us to set up a Collection Starter Kit.


• Help us collect non-perishable foods, camping equipment, money etc. You can contribute through the Pay Pal link on our blog.


• Participate and attend campaign fund-raisers and events. Visit our blog for schedaled events.


How the campaign came to be In June of 2005, the Ejercito Zapatista de Liberación Nacional, EZLN, anounced the Sixth Declaration of the La Candon Jungle and calle for “The Other Campaign”, a process to which all Mexicans and Chicanos living in Mexico and on this side of the US/Mexico border were asked to join.

From January through November of 2006, “Delegate Zero” commenced a national tour visiting the four corners of Mexico during which he met with Mexicans and Chicanos.

This to bring to the forefront awareness of social struggles for justice throughout Mexico and the Chicano/Mexican communities, so that we, the adherents, can come together and as human beings struggle for social change through peaceful means.

The second facet of the Other Campaign will begin at the end of February in the Mayor Cucapa community, about an hour in the outskirts of Mexicali, where the Cucapa live.

The EZLN Commission arrives at El Mayor Cucapa in the first week of March.

Campaña por la Dignidad y Sobrevivencia:



Alto al Genocidio de Nuestros Pueblos Indigenas


3 de Febrero del 2007


en el Space Ark Gallery 106 S. 58th st. Los Angeles, CA 90042


Evento empieza a las 6:00 pm






A los Cucapá , uno de los pueblos indígenas de Mexicali, Baja California, se les ha negado el permiso de pescar a pesar de que ellos tienen más de 9,000 años pescando en ese valle.

La pesca es parte de sus tradiciones ancestrales y es su única forma de sobrevivencia. En contraste, los pescadores comerciales no tienen ningún problema en conseguir permisos de pescar.

Durante la próxima temporada de pesca que comenzá a fines de febrero y culminará a mediados de mayo la Delegación Sexta del EZLN, junto con adherentes de “La Otra Campaña” harán un plantón en la comunidad del Mayor Cucapá, y acompañará a los habitantes de la region a ejercer su derecho de pescar como parte de una campaña pacífica de desobedencia civil por un cambio social por la justicia.

Comprendiendo que adherentes y simpatizadores llegarán de todo el mundo para integrarse al campamento de resistencia y para apoyar la lucha de los Cucapá, La Otra en el Otro Lado, un colectivo de adherentes de San Diego, Orange County, Riverside, Los Angeles, Oxnard, Santa Barbara y Watsonville, se ha comprometido a recaudar recursos para apoyar la iniciativa.







Como ayudar a darle alto a estas injusticias!


• Intégrese al Comité de Apoyo para el Campamento de Resistencia.

Como se difundio la campana, en junio de 2005, el Ejercito Zapatista de Liberación Nacional, EZLN, dio a conocer la Sexta Declaración de la Selva Lacandona, y anunció La Otra Campaña. Dichas iniciativas convocaron a quienes forman la Nación mexicana, incluidos los mexicanos y chicanos que viven en el “Otro Lado”, es decir el México ocupado.

De enero a noviembre de 2006, el delegado Zero realizó una gira por la República mexicana, durante la cual se reunió con mexicanos y chicanos, y se compartieron las diferentes luchas que personas, a grupos y colectivos realizan, abajo y a la izquierda.

La segunda etapa de La Otra Campaña comenzará a fines de febrero, en la comunidad de El Mayor Cucapá, una hora al sur de Mexicali.

La Comisión del EZLN llegará a dicho punto la primera semana de marzo.
