Solidarity With The Popular Indigenous Council of Oaxaca-Ricardo Flores Magon
The Popular Indigenous Council of Oaxaca
Ricardo Flores Magon is an autonomous organiza-
tion of indigenous and non-indigenous people who
ally themselves with the struggle for indigenous
rights and social justice all over the world. They work
for a world based on self-determination, equality,
direct democracy, and mutual aid for all through var-
ious projects and campaigns ranging from coopera-
tive businesses, to educational programs, to cultural
projects to mobilizing against the oppressive power
structure. The hundreds of members of the CIPO-
RFM take action in their daily lives to create the new
world they carry in their hearts. Since its birth, the
CIPO-RFM has suffered terrible repression.
Members have been attacked, jailed and even mur-
dered by the government. Currently there are 16
members in prison. With support and pressure from
the public, twelve others have been freed.
The hundreds of members of the
CIPO-RFM take action in their daily
lives to create the new world they carry
in their hearts.

"Boston Por CIPO-RFM" asks you to consider this
information and the following proposal for a speaking
tour of representatives of the CIPO-RFM in the U.S. and
Canada. If you feel you and/or your organization can partici-
pate in this tour in any way, be it by hosting a stop on the tour,
fundraising, endorsement, networking or any other way,
please contact us. Please forward this email to anybody you
suspect might be interested in getting involved. There is more
information available on the CIPO-RFM on their website
Thank you.

Magonista Tour through the
US and Canada
Brothers and sisters:
Taking into account the importance of communicat-
ing directly with you to strengthen and encourage
our efforts, exchange experiences, to support each
other in every way, to link our struggles and to
accompany all initiatives, we have proposed to do a
tour through the US and Canada. Also, we want to
rebuild the historic solidarity that has existed
between the people of Canada and the US with
those of Mexico, particularly with the struggles of the
Magonistas who formed the Mexican Liberal Party.
That is to say, we want a reunion with the neo-
Magonistas after almost 100 years of having initiated
this collaboration, as it is shown by the history of the
peoples who struggle. We will commission several
members to spread the word of our communities and
organization and to fulfill the following purposes:
a) To present a balance of the situation faced by
the indigenous peoples of Mexico and particularly
those of Oaxaca after four years of the Fox govern-
ment and half a year of the government of Ulises
b) To spread the organizational project of the
Magonistas of the CIPO-RFM,
our forms of resistance and
struggle, as well as the way in
which we are making possible in
our space, a world different than
the one now, with autonomy,
self-management, and self-
determination as a compass.
c) To organize committees of
support for our struggle, our
communities and organization,
or even to establish networks to
stop the harassment, the vio-
lence, the repression as well as
how to resolve community prob-
lems of development, health,
housing, education, training,
human rights, etc., for the
communities of the
CIPO-RFM but for oth-
ers as well.
d) To create rela-
tions with networks,
with unions, collec-
tives, foundations,
good-hearted peo-
ple, and other groups
and associations of
support that already
exist, and to elaborate with
them, a specific work plan, according to their willing-
ness, compromise, and possibilities.
e) To establish agreements of collaboration and
exchange with the foundations, associations, unions,
organizations, universities, and all of those who can
and have the disposition to collaborate with our proj-
ects, to provide technical, economic, or any other
kind of support.
f) To build agreements of
commercialization of the prod-
ucts produced by our commu-
nities, clay craftwork, textiles;
organic honey and coffee;
mole and chocolate.
g) To orchestrate the com-
mon international support, for
the organization and the repre-
sentatives of the CIPO-RFM.
In order to accomplish all of
the above, we believe only you
can help us and that is why we
are asking if you have the possibilities:
1) To organize meetings, talks, interviews etc., in
different locations in your area with: organizations,
foundations, means of communication, universities,
people, intellectuals, artists, religious people,
women, young people, queer folks, elders, workers,
teachers, business people, etc. That implies the
propaganda, the local spaces, etc.
2) To establish contact with other places where
activities such as the above can take place.
3) To coordinate our agenda in each of those
places. In this point, do not worry, we are used to
working 24 hours a day.
4) To help us with the costs during our stay, meals,
and transportation to the next place of activities,
including the costs of getting to the US and Canada.
Since the tour depends on the invitations, we will not
reject any invitation, we just ask that that you let us
know what activity shall take place in each location,
so that we can come prepared. The idea is that you
organize yourselves internally to define what day will
be held in the certain place and what will be done
We are convinced that without your help, this activ-
ity will be impossible to accomplish, that is why we
ask for your support.
We look forward to hearing from you, and hope that
your responses will be favorable, we send you a red
and black hug, that is to say, searching for a way to
meet our equals.
For the reconstruction and free association of our
peoples. The organizing committee of the CIPO-
