(en) [Mexico] Anarchists do act in Ricardo Flores Magon memory By ANA (pt) [machine translation]

Date Wed, 30 Nov 2016 12:53:33 +0200

Like every year, this November 21, 2016 , we paid a visit at the tomb where lie the remains of the companion Ricardo Flores Magon[16.09.1873 - 11.21.1922], in order to honor his memory, his ideas , his struggle, his life, and remember their cowardly murder 94 years ago in Leavenworth prison in the United States. ---- Only through the vile murder, they managed to snatch the voice of Ricardo, who never wavered, even in the face of persecution, imprisonment, or the decline of his health with which blanched his prisoner, sick body. And even with its imposed and cowardly death sentence, they could not silence those anarchist ideas that Ricardo, along with their co-religionists, unfurled under the banner of "Viva Tierra y Libertad", with which they sowed the land and peasant hands and workers of this region will in the world.

Ricardo and his fellow Liberal Mexicano, postulated since the early twentieth century the struggle against the dictator Diaz; up very early the flag of the revolution, which were gradually turning into anarchist voices packed Mexican history with their ideas and their actions. Among them came the main revolutionary postulates, with such force that both those who ended the revolution could ignore them.

Their voices were insistent and their frontal cries of freedom, who refused to be submitted before any political power - not Mexican or American. Only with the vile and cowardly murder could cut this irreducible voice, but not silenced their ideas, fertile, free, anarchic.

As every year, it, yes, few, it seems less and less, to put the black flag of anarchy in the grave of Ricardo, along with flowers of freedom, talking about his memory of his ideas are still alive and latent, that with all our faults, our mistakes, our limitations, which are many, we remain here under the motto of "Viva Tierra y Libertad."

When I die, maybe my friends write to my grave "Here lies a dreamer"; and my enemies "Here lies a madman." But no one will dare to write this inscription. "Here lies a coward and traitor to his ideas" Ricardo Flores Magón
