Judith de las danzas aztecas Cuauhtemoc se puso en huelga de hambre

by Rodrigo Argueta Wednesday, Jun. 24, 2009 at 11:25 PM

Compas todas, la compa Judith de las danzas aztecas Cuauhtemoc se puso en huelga de hambre, ella esta entre las calles 3ra y 4ta sobre la Beaudry a un lado del 110 fwy.

Creo que no hay mucho que decir para poder ubicar el trabajo de la compa Judith, ha estado en practicamente con todas las organizaciones y grupos aqui en Los Angeles y mas alla, con su grupo de danzantes ha estado al frente o atras o donde se pueda en casi todas las marchas y eventos, cada vez que le hemos pedido apoyo, alli esta, alli esta SIEMPRE!! con los tambores y la danza.

ha estado con los Filipinos frente al consulado de ellos innumerables veces, con los del Frente Farabundo Marti para la Liberacion Nacional otras tantas, con las marchas realizadas en Maywood, en las marchas de Emiliano Zapata por 15 años en el este de los Angeles, con los nicaraguenses del Frente sandinista de Liberacion Nacional, en incontables veces con la gente de Union del Barrio, jamas ha desairado a los compas Puertorriqueños, con los grupos del movimiento migratorio los de antes y los de hoy, fue la unica danza que acompaño a la coalicion del Sur de California en su marcha reciente, ha danzado en eventos con diferentes expresiones de la Hermandad Mexicana, a estado en casi todos los centros organizativos, con los sindicatos, con las costureras, los empleados despedidos de las fabricas, en todas las marchas y eventos organizados por el Frente Indigena Oaxaqueño Binacional, han dado la cara por los compas de Atenco, Michoacan, Guerrero, Peru, Bolivia, Venezuela, Guatemala, Colombia.. etc.. y han danzado por la Fundacion Niños De Chiapas para recaudar fondos, han participado en cada evento del Frente Unido de los Pueblos Americanos,

Son practicamente el ultimo bastion de apoyo politico real del Ejercito Zapatista de Liberacion Nacional -sin menospreciar a los otros compas y colectivos que tambien estan realizando un trabajo de apoyo para los Zapatistas- , Doña Judith al frente de las danzas nunca jamas se nego, ni se negara a lanzarse a cada batalla que se le presente.

Quien puede siquiera sugerir que sus virtudes en la lucha callejera son infinitamente mayores que cualquiera (si los hubiera) de sus errores?
Hoy, la compa se ha hechado en los hombros una lucha que deberia estar encabezada por los afectados directamente, la lucha de los maestros y la lucha de evitar recortes a las escuelas y al ciclo de estudios y al presupuesto, etc.

su corage la ha empujado ha ponerse en huelga de hambre en las oficinas del distrito escolar. Los maestros que estaban en huelga de hambre ya la levantaron por haber cumplido la fase que se propusieron y ahora ella los releva, con la presencia de alg unos de los maestros y pocas gentes mas, pero solo ella esta en huelga de hambre en este momento.

Perdon por citar a los aqui--se citan y hay muchos mas grupos que no se citan por que se llevaria un libro completo el citar a todos los grupos--que hemos sido apoyados por los Danzantes Mexicas, en Santa Ana, Oxnard, Tijuana, Los Angeles, etc etc etc
es mas; seria muy dificil hacer el recuento de todas las batallas y marchas y eventos a donde la hemos visto, con ese vigor que solo puede dar la conviccion de que la guerra del pueblo en contra de los opresores es una guerra hasta el final de nuestros dias.

Si este correo te llega es porque de alguna forma conoces a los danzantes o a doña Judith quien empezo su huelga de hambre el dia 19 de Junio sin una fecha fija para terminarla, pero aunque sea un dia o una semana, con esa accion nos esta llamando a participar y no podemos dejarla sola pues si no lo hacemos como podriamos verla a los ojos otra vez y pedirle su apoyo cuando lo necesitemos?.

AHORA ES EL TIEMPO DE CUMPLIR CON ELLOS ASI COMO ELLOS YA HAN CUMPLIDO DE SOBRA CON NOSOTROS.
ELLA ESTA PIDIENDO A LOS COMPAS DEL ARTE QUE LO PINTEN, A LOS MUSICOS QUE LO CANTEN, A LAS ORGANIZACIONES QUE PROPAGANDICEMOS LA LUCHA, A LOS PADRES DE FAMILIA QUE SE CONCIENTICEN Y A LOS MAESTROS Y ESTUDIANTES QUE DIGNIFIQUEN SU PAPEL HISTORICO.


Judith de las danzas aztecas Cuauhtemoc se puso en huelga de hambre, ella esta e ntre las calles 3ra y 4ta sobre la Beaudry a un lado del 110 fwy.

se necesitan compas cantores que lleguen a trovar a unque sea alguna vez si deseas llegar a tocar al campamento, si quieres apoyar de cualquier otra forma regresa este correo o comunicate al (323) , se necesita agua y tu presencia, Gracias compas
VIVA DOñA JUDITH!
VIVAN LOS DANZANTES!
VIVAN NUESTROS PUEBLOS EN LUCHA!

si alguien puede traducir esto pues gracias



Judith from Danza Cuauhtémoc is fasting and needs YOUR support

Message from Rodrigo Argueta about danzante Judith (translated)

Brothers and sisters, our compañera Judith from Danza Azteca Cuauhtémoc has gone on hunger strike. She is on Beaudry between 3rd and 4th streets beside the 110 freeway.

There is not much to say to describe the work of comrade Judith--she has been with practically every organization and group here in Los Angeles and beyond. With her group of dancers, she has been at the front or behind or wherever in almost every march and event, each time we have asked for support she's there, she's ALWAYS there! with the drums and the danza.

She has been with the Filipinos in front of their consulate an innumerable number of times, with the Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front many others, at the marches conducted in Maywood, at the marches for Emiliano Zapata for 15 years in East Los Angeles, with the Nicaraguans of the Sandinista National Liberation Front, numerous times with the folks from Unión del Barrio, she has never ignored our Puerto Rican comrades, qith groups from the immigrant rights movements of the past and of today, hers was the only danza to accompany the Southern California Immigration Coalition at their recent march, she has danced at events with different manifestations of Hermandad Mexicana, she has been at almost every organizational center, with the unions, with the garment workers, laid-off factory workers, at all the marches and events organized by the Binational Oaxacan Indigenous Front, they have backed up the compañerxs from Atenco, Michoacán, Guerrero, Perú, Bolivia, Venezuela, Guatemala, Colombia, etc. and they have danced for the Chiapan Children's Foundation to raise funds, have participated in each and every event of the United Front of the Peoples of the Americas....

They are practically the last bastion of real political support for the Zapatista National Liberation Army, without devaluing the other friends and collectives who are also working to support the Zapatistas, Doña Judith heading up the danzas has never denied, and never will refrain from throwing herself into each struggle that comes about.

Who could even suggest that her strength she gives to the fight in the streets are infinitely greater than any (if there were any) of her errors? Today, our compañera has taken on a struggle that should be spearheaded by those who are directly affected, the fight of the teachers and the struggle to avoid cuts to the schools, the school year, and the budget, etc.

Her courage has pushed her to fast at the office of the school district. The teachers who were on hunger strike have broken their fast since they accomplished this phase of what they proposed to do, and now she has relieved them, with the presence of some of the teachers and a few others, but only she is on hunger strike as of now.

My apologies for only mentioning those groups here cited--it would take a whole book to list everybody who has also received the support of the Aztec dancers, in Santa Ana, Oxnard, Tijuana, Los Angeles, etc. etc. What's more, it would be very difficult to enumerate all the battles and marches and events where we have seen her, with that vigor that can only come from the conviction that the war of the people agaisnt their oppressors is a war until our dying days.

If this letter reaches you, it's because in one way or another, you know the dancers or Doña Judith who started her hunger strike June 19 without any set date to break it, but whether its a day or a week, with this action she is calling us to participate and we cannot leave her alone. If we did, how could we look her in the eye again and ask for her support when we need it?

Now is the time to be there for them like they have always been there (and then some) for us. She is asking that the artists paint, that the musicians sing, that the organizations spread the word about the struggle, that the parents raise their awareness, and that the students and teachers dignify their historic role.

Judith from Danza Azteca Cuauhtémoc has gone on hunger strike, she is on Beaudry between 3rd and 4th streets just beside the 110 freeway.

Brothers and sisters in the struggle are needed to sing, or even if you just want to touch base with the campout, if you want to support in any way, e-mail back or call, we need water and your presence!

Long live Doña Judith!
Long live the dancers!
Long live our people in the struggle!
