(en) anarchist group "bad horse", APO: "LIKE THE RIGHT WEEDS, WE WILL CONTINUE TO PROCEED, WITHOUT HURRY BUT WITHOUT STOPPING" [Traduction automatique]

From the prologue of the publication The Process of Liberation of the Mother Earth of the Nasa People ---- For communication, orders, shipments send to the mail: d_ippos@hotmail.com or close to the self-managed space On the Face (87 Patreos, Patra), every Tuesday and Friday, 19.00 to 22.00 ---- "LIKE THE RIGHT WEEDS, WE WILL CONTINUE TO PROGRESS, WITHOUT HURRY BUT WITHOUT STOP" ---- The Nasa are an indigenous people living in the North Caucasus of Colombia. Since 2014, they have started the process called the Liberation of Mother Earth. This consists of land reclamation actions, in which private companies have imposed sugarcane monocultures, intended for the production of biofuels. With the motto "the land has no bosses", the Nasas have managed to regain thousands of hectares of land, destroying monocultures and planting in their place food which in many cases is distributed in the slums of the big cities. The whole community participates in these actions, dedicating hours of daily work. With stones, wood and slingshots they defend their land, freedom, dignity and culture, Seeking against the rights of companies,

The struggle of this people for the defense of land and water against the domestic and international interests that have appropriated their ancestral lands, results in the constant targeting and the attempt to exterminate them by the Colombian state, the paramilitary groups operating in the region. , the companies and the rights of the landowners.

During the pandemic and during the restrictive measures imposed, the attacks on Nasa intensified. The pandemic was used as an opportunity to strike at the process of liberating the land, to disarm the resistance, to terrorize the people who are struggling. In vain though. The shootings, the arson, the arrests, the proclamations and the assassinations cannot bend the liberators who continue despite the terrorism. "With power, persuasion, music and joy. The pain for the fallen comrades does not bend us, it gives us strength. "It's been rebellious," they write.

At the time of writing, indigenous killings are taking place. On April 20, Liliana Pena Chocue, Governor of the La Laguna-Siberia Shelter, in Caldono, North Cauca, Colombia, was threatened with death by NASA's territorial control and decision to allow their coca on their land, then killed. "These violent incidents affecting our communities are increasing day by day, as there is no end to the news of the ongoing assassinations of leaders and members of our communities, the constant threats of those defending their territories and defending their territories. the structures of self-government, "the Cauca Regional Council (CRIC) said shortly after the assassination. which unites ten indigenous peoples living in the area. The continued eradication of illegal coca crops in their territories resulted in the injury of dozens of indigenous people after being shot by paramilitaries. The Indigenous Militia arrested 12 paramilitaries with heavy weapons after the attack.

A few days later, caravans of Indigenous people from the Caucasus are flown to Cali to join forces with strikers fighting the new anti-labor reforms and the tax bill, which was eventually withdrawn by the government. Strikes and mobilizations take on the character of a general uprising, with countless arrests, beatings, torture and killings of militants. NASA proves in practice that the struggles for the defense of the land and freedom are inextricably linked to the workers' demands, to the struggles of the workers and the insurgent people of Colombia against the plunder of their lives and capital.

This edition seeks to contribute to the promotion and dissemination of the difficult, special and formidable struggle waged by the liberators of the land in the North Caucasus of Colombia. The special relationship they have with the natural world, the way, the perception and the strategy that the indigenous peoples in the North Caucasus develop for their struggle within the given social, political, cultural conditions, the difficulties and the obstacles they find constitute valuable experience for movements as well as food for thought, experimentation, discussion and dialogue.

The example of their struggle can serve as an inspiration for the fighters who in a series of fronts in Greece are trying to block the "development" that plunders and destroys the natural world and dissolves the life of societies. Not to be copied and patented. After all, this would be useless, especially given the different culture and civilization, the different conditions that prevail, the particular social correlations that have been formed throughout history and the struggles. But to act as a catalyst in's thought and action. To ponder or even to show new ways. To highlight the diversity and diversity of the games. Contribute to an open dialogue on how we can develop our tools and our struggle.

We hope that in the next period new struggles will begin, that the existing ones will be strengthened, that these "annoying weeds" will spring up and grow everywhere, that they will take root deep in the earth, as the NASA say. Weeds that will break the void and the cement of capitalist growth and profitability, that will fight for life against death, hope, freedom and dignity against fear and submission. Weeds that will break the prevailing narrative according to which everything is judged on the basis of profit and cost, that will overthrow the giant plans of the state and investors which will desert whole areas, destroy mountains, seas, rivers and entire ecosystems and privatize water and electricity.

With the hope of meeting where the struggles for life, land and freedom breathe. In cities, mountains, villages, where you are fighting for a freer life in aaronic coexistence with the natural world. Because this is how this publication started, in the events and mobilizations for the defense of Agrafa from the investment plans that want to turn them into a industrial zone from wind farms.

For the edition,

anarchist group "bad horse",
