Marcha Zapatista

La Marcha Zapatista Contra la Impunidad se llevó a cabo el 7 de Mayo del 2011 en San Cristóbal de Las Casas. La Marcha incluyó a miles de mujeres y hombres en solidaridad con el Ejercito Zapatista de Liberación Nacional (EZLN). La marcha en silencio fue convocada por el poeta y periodista Javier Sicilia cuyo hijo fue asesinado. La presencia de Zapatistas, quienes llegaron en camiones de redillas, fue inesperada ya que no habían salido de sus comunidades por cinco años. Desde el Centro Indígena de Capacitación Integral (CIDECI) hasta la Plaza de la Paz, las personas marcharon en el camino viejo a San Juan Chamula con carteles que decían “!Alto a la guerra de Calderón!,” “Estamos hasta la madre,” y “!No más sangre en nuestro suelo Mexicano!”

Miles de Zapatistas toman San Cristóbal de las Casas en Chiapas para repudiar la “guerra de Calderón”.

 

The Zapatista March Against Impunity took place on May 7, 2011 in San Cristóbal de las Casas. Thousands of men and women participated in the march in conjunction with the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN in Spanish). The silent march was convened by the poet-journalist Javier Sicilia in the wake of his son’s murder. The presence of the Zapatistas, who arrived in pickup trucks, was unanticipated given that they had not left their communities for five years. From the Indigenous Center for Integrated Learning (CIDECI in Spanish) to the city’s main Plaza de la Paz, the participants marched along the old road to San Juan Chamula with posters that read “Stop Calderón’s war!,” “We’re done!,” and “No more blood on our Mexican soil!”
