(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #231 - Mexico: Resisting the PRI is to resist the worst (fr)[machine translation]

Date Thu, 28 Nov 2013 08:57:06 +0200

With the return of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) since December 2012, we had written that we were expecting the worst[1]. We are not disappointed. ---- Just came to power, Enrique Peña Nieto (EPN) signed with the PAN (National Action Party, Catholic right) and the PRD (Party of the Democratic Revolution, left far more radical) the Pact Mexico, sealing the unit of the Mexican political class to deepen neoliberal bleeding in the country. With some paternalistic social programs to get the pill, EPN has undertaken to reform the constitution to be able to privatize everything goes. It began with education, and is now tackling energy. National and transnational capitalism benefits and looting the country with mining or tourism projects wind, hydraulic imposed by force. Social and indigenous resistance is imprisoned, murdered or forced into exile, while organized crime runs fine days. This is the beauty of the corrupt political and judicial system built by the PRI during his 70 years in power.

Self-organization as resistance

Some local struggles come to oppose this movement, the more massive are those of the Zapatistas and community fonts Guerrero. In this ravaged by organized crime state, many indigenous communities have organized since 1995 to put out the police and army, largely corrupt and inefficient, and develop their own police and justice, based on the rehabilitation and repair. In these regions, affecting nearly 100,000 people, crime and organized crime have collapsed through these autonomous community practices.

A global social movement struggling to emerge

But the global struggles are harder to articulate. Mobilization against education reform, for example, took months to train and out of corporatism monstrous education union whose leader-es are also widely corrupt. Despite attempts to create a popular movement bringing together teachers, social organizations and parents in some states (Oaxaca, Guerrero), the movement has not massification and laws were passed. The energy reform recently announced in a country committed to its oil, however, could cause a massive mobilization. And why not represent the straw that broke the camel?
