(en) [Mexico] Faced with prey and statist and capitalist speculation, self-management and anger By ANA (ca, pt) [machine translation]

On a date commemorating the 32nd anniversary of the earthquake of 1985, again the inability and political profit of the tragedy by the government and also of every political class where the alarm did not sound because one can not control the force of nature and it can not be assured that the city is safe, where the negligence of governments and their pronouncements as absolute connoisseurs of truth, leads to the granting of hundreds of real estate contracts in Mexico City for the sole purpose of private gain and with the purpose of that the city continues to grow, even when there is no water, transportation is insufficient, roads are collapsed and contamination also puts us at risk a few months ago, as Miguel Angel Mancera reminds us when declaring that "(...) encourage investment that generates work sources and inputs to a better quality of life ... Grow in a planned and orderly way so that sustainability is a universal axis ... The development of life must meet vertical residences, with the multiple or mixed soil use. They continue to build houses and buildings with restricted uses where there is no possibility that people receive services that are needed, for example, shops, dye shops, etc. You can not island people in developments and cities-dormitories, where there is nothing like the colonies that is doing the State of Mexico, which has no service . " Interview given to Real Estate magazine, n. 82, 2012.

The earthquake of September 19, shows again how the government does not have the capacity to govern or to save, being the autonomous society and solidarity that when pitying (to suffer with the other, to feel the pain of the other) is organized. Thousands of people have been able to help each other through equals, taking horizontality to the practical level, leaving aside the government that only kills, while thousands of self-employed help each other, giving what they have: food, medicine everywhere, people waiting hundreds of architects, engineers, and thousands of families, women, and children delivering food to every community in disaster areas to assess how to clear the debris; masons, students, carpenters, locksmiths, electricians, finally, people without any profit, without any payment, all day and night working in common. There is no chaos, there are discussions, but the self-management of all organized in solidarity is the highest expression of the anarchy of the people, with the fist erected and in silence working, without government and without command, without police and without army.

The authority says "they go home!" And the anonymous people are still working, which creates mistrust and incapacity, because thousands of eyes observe everything and the government wants to manage and capitalize on the tragedy for political campaigning purposes, and so we asks us to go out, to invent stories the way they want and to generate telenovelas with the tragedy, to give medals between them that change the face of the murderous government, stained with thousands of disappearances and executions, and as we know of their provocations, anonymous we are with the eyes wide open as the tremor also shook our consciousness.

We will not stop supporting or assisting the zones, we will not stop helping the shelters; but we can not let the army destroy the buildings with people inside, alive or not, because the bodies are ours too, they belong to our families and we will not let them be part of a missing list knowing we can get them out; we will not let them administer and control our pain, let us therefore withdraw from power.
