(en) [Mexico] Libertarian communiqué regarding death projects in the Yucatan Peninsula By ANA [machine translation]

Date Thu, 27 Dec 2018 07:34:33 +0200


Extractivism is once again news, now in communities of the Yucatan Peninsula where it is worth remembering that extractivism also presents an ecological facet as renewable energy, when, in fact, they are an even greater exploitation of Mother Earth and all beings inhabiting it or its forced displacement or death. In this context, they send us the following communiqué and hope that it will continue to stir up the flame of insurrection against extractivism. ---- We reproduce the text below: ---- All the independent and subversive media ---- To all xs individualities and collectivities with anarchism affinity ---- Anyone who is interested ---- As a group of individuals related to libertarian thought, we intend to share our perspective on the brutality of expropriation, repression and persecution that we are living today in the Mayan communities, with which we are creating a solidarity bond accompanying their resistance and struggle.

Extending our anti-authoritarian and anti-capitalist anti-reformist positions, we make it clear that we are not willing to have any agreement or get involved in policies that come from governmental bodies, however, we respect and stay out of decisions about strategies used in the Mayan communities in their processes of autonomy and self-determination, in specific solidarity with which we have affinity.

That said, it is important to disseminate information about its decentralization, extending ties of solidarity, serving as a bridge between the Maya organization and the individuals or groups that want to join forces to fight the communities in resistance and their demands the defense of life, land and all living beings before a system operating under the damaging logic of neoliberal capitalism that plundered any living organism that gives any benefit or wealth in the name of the country's "progress" and "economic development."

From our perspective, we condemn the imposition of megaprojects that have consequences such as pollution of groundwater, the use of transgenic and pesticides that corrode the soil becoming infertile, and the destruction of biodiversity in human hands causing extinction, such as land for hydrocarbon extraction, expropriation, supply or auctioning of land for exploitation by transnational and national companies.

Filled with anger at these bloody actions, but motivated by the fact that there are communities organizing to confront these atrocities, we were able to meet the Muuch Xíinbal Assembly of Defenders of the Maya People, a community organization where representatives of different communities in the Península meet occasionally to share their problems as a community and discuss possible solutions to be taken. This set comes from the publication in networks of a meeting with residents in the municipality of Peto (Mayan community) to alert them about the consequences that green technology companies promoted in the Yucatan Peninsula.

After the implementation of the energy transition plan in 2015, the accelerated imposition of projects in this area in recent years, along with the granting of land grant licenses without consulting the inhabitants of the communities, caused great discontent that is channeled through the current gestating organization in southeastern Mexico.

It has been demonstrated that companies must comply with environmental impact assessments, but in most cases they have many irregularities or in some others there is no such assessment, and the expropriation, deterioration and destruction of nature are ignored in thousands of hectares . This shows the unsustainability of these projects, which as a last drop promote mechanisms of "participation" such as consultation and evaluation of social impact, which on their facade are painted to take into account the decisions of the community, however, in reality they are tools bureaucratic practices developed to benefit the interests of companies that in turn divide, pacify, struggle and exacerbate the differences that arise between communities and even in some cases,

"These Mayan lands of the Yucatan Peninsula and the natural resources we have today are at serious risk of contamination and deforestation, since the date on which federal and state authorities authorized megaprojects of high impact on the environment, as they approved 6 solar parks , 9 wind farms and 1 farm for 49,000 pigs in our territory. wind and solar energy companies that invade us with their projects are: Wind from the Gulf, Strength and Clean Energy of Yucatan, Consorcio Energía Limpia, BHCE, Renewable Energy of the Peninsula, Vega Solar 1 and 2, the wind energy company Elecnor, the company Lightenning PV Park and Jinkosolar, the sustainable company Photoemeris, the PV development company Yucatan and the company Aldesa Energías Renovables. "

In this context of extractive projects, our contribution from our libertarian position is of solidarity and direct action respecting the decisions of the struggle of the communities, without leaving aside our organizing and operating individually, which is immanent in our life, we extend the information so that since other positions can contribute to this struggle in defense of life, land and its elements, and we urge you to join in this struggle and follow up by maintaining direct communication with the people of the Assembly, keeping them alert to what may happen . Without further ado, for now, we extend a fraternal greeting from the lands of the Mayab.

We leave the links where the Múuch Xíinbal organization can be contacted for more information and to clarify any doubts, just as we shared the audio of a presentation by a member of the Assembly of Defenders of the Maya People, which was exhibited at the Meeting of Studies and Anarchist Reflections organized between affinities, this year.
