To our Zapatista sisters and brothers:

To our compañer@s of The Other Campaign:

To our compañer@s of the Zezta Internazional:

To the adherents of the International Campaign in Defense of El Barrio and our allies across the world:

To the civil society in Mexico and the world:

We want to share with you the first update regarding the convocation of the Worldwide Day of Action for the Liberation of the Political Prisoners of San Sebastián Bachajón and the International Day in Honor of the Women of The Other Campaign, on March 7 and 8, respectively.

First – Our sisters and brothers of San Sebastian Bachajón will also organize actions on March 7 and 8 to demand the liberation of the 10 political prisoners.

Second – Our sisters and brothers of San Sebastian Bachajón have succeeded in breaking down the neoliberal border, which those from above impose upon us, by sending us a video-message from Chiapas to El Barrio, New York. This video-message has touched our hearts. It includes an explanation of their dignified struggle, the recent attacks, and the arrest of the 10 political prisoners. In addition, they also offer special messages to all the women around the world who are in struggle, to The Other Campaign, and to Movement for Justice in El Barrio.

Third – Here in New York, one of the activities that Movement for Justice in El Barrio will organize for the Worldwide Day of Action for the Liberation of the Political Prisoners of San Sebastián Bachajón and the International Day in Honor of the Women of The Other Campaign is a public forum, where we will present the video-message.

Fourth – The video-message will be available for all those compañer@s who would like to present it in their rebellious corner of the world as part of the Worldwide Day of Action for the Liberation of the Political Prisoners of San Sebastián Bachajón and the International Day in Honor of the Women of The Other Campaign. It will be translated from Tzeltal and feature subtitles in Spanish and English. If you would like a copy of the video, please contact us as soon as possible at movementforjusticeinelbarrio@yahoo.com

Fifth – We have received many responses in support of the convocation. It is very clear that around the world there is a great deal of support for the people of San Sebastián Bachajón and the dignified struggle of the women of The Other Campaign. We wish to thank those of you who have responded and disseminated the convocation worldwide.

That is all for now, compas.

We send you embraces of love and solidarity.

From El Barrio, NYC
