(en) USA: NYMAA Communique of Solidarity with Atenco

Date Mon, 29 May 2006 12:37:22 +0200 (CEST)

The following is a statement from the New York Metro Alliance of
Anarchists in solidarity with the people of San Salvador Atenco, a town in
Mexico that recently endured a brutal police raid due to their involvement
with the People's Front in Defense of the Land and the Other Campaign.
Mobilizations have taken place all over the world to demand the immediate
cessation of hostilities and the immediate release of all those still in
prison, but the situation remains tense.

Rebellion is Bursting into Blossom

Across the world, from Global South to Global North, news of the struggle
in San Salvador Atenco is spreading like a prairie fire. Even in New York
City, a center of empire and a capitol of capital, we have heard of the
brave resistance of the people of Atenco to a global system of terrifying

Four years ago, when the people of Atenco fought from below against the
incursion of an airport on their land, they captured the attention and
embodied hopes of all of us who fight for autonomy and freedom. Like us,
the people of Atenco fight for their own lives, but not solely their own.
Their rebellion shook a free trade plan at its foundations, and has drawn
a line of defense for communities across the region.

We consider this month?s police attack in Atenco an attack on everyone in
the Western Hemisphere. Once again the powerful are employing arbitrary
arrests, beatings, rape and murder to defend their system from the modest
demands of human dignity. Once again the businessmen, politicians and
police are trying to bury the truth alongside their victims. But from New
York to Atenco, resistance continues to bloom ? astonishing those with
suits and flags, money and guns.

In this spirit, the New York Metro Alliance of Anarchists demands the
IMMEDIATE RELEASE of all those arrested or disappeared by government
forces, and the IMMEDIATE WITHDRAWAL of all such forces from San Salvador
Atenco. Let those for whom oppression would bring fear and silence know:
we are prepared to mobilize in our city to oppose the atrocities committed
against you, and to fight for a world that includes us all.
