At 527 years after the start of the resistance and rebellion of the original peoples against the colonial invasion, the war of the patriarchal capitalist system and its megaprojects continue to bring death and destruction throughout the world and put all forms of life at risk on planet earth.
Particularly in Mexico, with the lie of wanting to eradicate poverty in the south of the country, the López Obrador government conspires with business mafias, organized crime, and political parties of all colors to take up the old dream of Porfirio Díaz and the plans of all neoliberal governments since Salinas de Gortari and offer up the national territory to global capital.
In the face of national and worldwide disaster, the National and International Assembly of the National Indigenous Congress / Indigenous Governing Council and Adherents to the Sixth, the Networks of Resistance and Rebellion, Organizations and Collectives of “The Isthmus Is Ours” gathered in Juchitán, Isthmus of Tehuantepec, Oaxaca, on September 6, 7, and 8, 2019:
WE CALL on the communities, organizations, and people of Mexico and the World, in accordance with the ways and times of each organization, TO PERFORM COORDINATED ACTIONS within the framework of the
Global Day of Struggle
In Defense of Life and Our Territories
“SAMIR FLORES LIVES”
on October 12, 2019
We invite you to a dispersed and forceful mobilization throughout the country against the megaprojects of death, a mobilization with an anti-capitalist and anti-patriarchal character, seeking all sectors to participate, making the paliacate (bandana) a common symbol, and that in all spaces we show art, music, creativity from below.
We denounce that with the implementation of megaprojects such as the so-called Maya Train, the Dos Bocas Refinery, the Inter-Oceanic Corridor of the Isthmus, the Morelos Integral Project, the new airport and its associated works such as the Mexico-Tuxpan Highway, as well as a monstrous set of environmental, territorial, and social predation projects with mining, hydroelectric, agribusiness, industrial corridors, gas pipelines, oil pipelines, fracking, wind farms, large-scale enterprise solar panels, etc. that are part of the infrastructure that is intended to be imposed for the looting of natural assets (oil, minerals, forests, jungles, wind, rivers, lakes, and oceans) and the overexploitation of labor from our towns in Mexico and Latin America to deliver our territories to the great transnational capital, destroying biodiversity, and exacerbating the catastrophe of global warming, making it clear that this proposal of the state with a neoliberal developmentalist character to solving the problems of Mexicans who face unemployment, poverty, and violence, among others.
The activities that each organization defines must be registered no later than October 1 in the email email@example.com.
