As the Cancun, Mexico summit of the World Trade Organisation approaches,
Comandante Zebedeo and the Zapatistas condemn the WTO, reminding the world of
the Alternative Media Tech Convergence Sept 1-7, the Campesino (peasant farmer)
Forum 8-9, and the Global Day of Resistance Sept 9th..
"Make ourselves children of rebellion and resistance", declare the Zapatistas.
> Comandante Zebedeo has declared, in the name of the EZLN:
"We would like to mention that in the coming days there will be a very
important meeting in Cancun, Mexico.
And we are not referring to the meeting of the World Trade Organization, that
body which commands the new world war against humanity.

No, we are talking about the meeting which will have people from all over the
planet, in order to repeat the "no" to the exclusionary world of money and to
affirm that another world is possible.

It is our understanding that there will be a meeting from September 1 - 7
concerning alternative media and technology, and from September 8-9, a
campesino forum.

And, on September 9, within a month, there will be mobilizations in Cancun and
throughout the world against those who think they are the owners of the planet.

In September, the word of the zapatistas will go to Cancun and to the planet,
in the method and manner which shall be decided.

Brothers and sisters:
We would also like to send greetings and to embrace, with special affection and
admiration, all those worlds which there are in the world.

We do not know the countries, but we do know some people who are fighting in
them, and we have learned, through their words and their actions, that dignity
and rebellion have nothing to do with flags, languages, types of exchange and
passports. We are telling those different worlds that from here, from the
mountains of the Mexican southeast, they are not alone.

Brothers and sisters:
Let us leave racism and exclusion behind, let us see a common path that will
lead us towards the hope for a more human life.

In order to build this new world, it is necessary and important that all men
and women make ourselves children of rebellion and resistance, and realize that
our wages will be being the first to try out the modern jails built by the so-
called governments.

Which will mean then, not to lose sight of the world-wide global monster.

And these have been our words, and what follows is dancing and struggling.

Viva world resistance!
Viva world rebellion!
Vivan the poor peoples of the world!
