Call for Solidarity with the Political Prisoners of Eloxochitlán de Flores Magón, #Oaxaca

Editor’s Note: This communique speaks to the recent scheduling of the final hearing in the case of anarchist political prisoner Miguel Peralta Betanzos. Following the pattern of irregularities in the case, the court again broke their own laws, scheduling the final hearing in two months rather than within five days as the law states.

#Oaxaca: A Word From PIRATA About the killing of Some Members of CODEDI

Mexico: On Monday, February 12th, in the Miahuatlan federal road (Oaxaca), repeated shots from assault rifles hit the car where our brothers from the Indigenous people’s Rights Defense Committee (CODEDI) were driving, killing 3 comrades, two of them being underage.

#EZLN: The Popular Movement and the Electoral Strategy. An Indigenous Candidate for Mexico

The Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN) took a surprising twist to their history back on 10 October 2016, one which could yet shape the future of Mexican politics. Together with the National Indigenous Congress (CNI), which they are integrated with, they announced their intention to nominate an indigenous woman as an independent candidate for the upcoming presidential election in 2018 – “an indigenous woman, a CNI delegate, who speaks her indigenous language and knows her culture”.
