(en) Mexico, Press release of the Anarchist Black Cross - the statements of GDF

Date Tue, 04 Dec 2012 20:06:09 +0200

In recent days, following the events of the demonstrations on December 1 for the inauguration of Enrique Peña Nieto as president, in which the police forces, both federal Federal District brutally repressed demonstrators, Officials of the Federal District, including those found himself head of government and the capital's attorney, have made statements declaring that those responsible for the clashes are anarchist groups.--Before this we want to clarify: ---- The Anarchist Black Cross is an initiative libertarian Mexico, our work is aimed to extend solidarity with prisoners, both common called as those imprisoned for their ideas and political actions and anarchists, accompanying them in their legal processes, spreading his letters and making outreach events in their status, repressive anti conducted workshops, promoting self-organization in our neighborhoods and communities; as well as knowledge of legal defense strategies, under the idea that repression is a mechanism inherent in the Capital and the State, which does not hesitate to use to maintain the domination and exploitation in which this system is based; also disseminate ideas and thinking anti-prison, driving the debate about the nature of social control of the prison, and their role in maintaining the capitalist system.

As an initiative, our efforts are aimed at these tasks, which have been made public. All activities organized, and in which we participate, are summoned from our website and email, as well as being signed.

In the mass media has been mentioned that among the male and female detainees are persons belonging to anarchist groups. Before this goes without saying that none of those arrested belong to Mexico Anarchist Black Cross, however, express our absolute solidarity with all people who have been arrested and demanded his immediate release.

We understand that these statements, which are intended to become involved as perpetrators of the events of the demonstrations are part of a campaign of criminalization and persecution against groups and individuals anarchists and libertarians. Marcelo Ebrard has been characterized by identifying and criminalizing anarchist groups, from his tenure as Secretary of Public Safety of the City, so it is not strange to us this season and we see these signs in a rematch against us because of the work we have been conducted mainly in solidarity with anarchist youth that the government of Mexico has kidnapped his jails in recent years.

We sympathized with them, and with different national cases of political prisoners, and in that context we have made several complaints showing the intrinsic repressor Federal District government, who used their own laws facciosamente for creating and mounting accusations processes riddled with irregularities.

We denounce this persecution campaign, launched in 2003 with accusations anarchist groups after the commemorative march of October 2nd and in the last year has worsened (just mention that in recent days a call apocryphal circle to an activity in solidarity with prisoners), continue with the administration of Miguel Angel Mancera, who has not hesitated to give incriminating statements about anarchist groups that act in the City of Despair.

What happened on December 1 is the product of social discontent. The swearing in of EPN is only a part, we can not fail to see that there is a growing outrage at the social, economic and political climate, in which the concentration of power in a small group of people and companies are bringing serious consequences for the vast majority of people. Police, federal and local, displayed his usual brutality against every protester, against anyone who in their path, making arbitrary arrests and indiscriminate. This, coupled with the news of wounded comrades around San Lazaro, sparked further anger protesters.

For us, violence originates in the political system and the state, we try to bring their instruments of social control, and the economic system that deprives us of the ability to have a decent life and exploits us through appropriation of our work. This is the original violence and she will always be legitimate to organize. The real terrorists are those who by their actions or their silent complicity, have plunged the country into a senseless war, filling the cities of fear and death, and criminalizing poverty chasing and killing is organized and who dares to stand up .

So, with this statement denounced the growing campaign of criminalization of social protest, especially against the anarchist groups and individuals. We hold it to the Government of the Federal District. We demand the immediate release of each and every one of those arrested.

Down the prison walls!

Freedom to all LA!
