Chiapas: EZLN criticizes structural reforms

In a communique published on 3 November entitled “Bad and not so bad news,” the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN) took count–both figuratively and literally–of the first generation of the “Escuelita” (Little School) which was held in August, with the participation of 1281 students.  The EZLN announced the new sessions planned for December and January, giving instructions for registration and participation.

The EZLN, through the voice of Subcomandante Insurgente Marcos, also criticized the “badly hidden lies” called “structural reforms.”  Marcos noted that the “well-behaved left” is now united in a “sanctified crusade” which seeks to accuse anarchists, young and mature, who defy the system: “Because now it so happens that these badly hidden lies known as ‘structural reforms,’ such as the labor suppression of teachers, the sale of the Nation’s resources, the robbery perpetrated by the government against the governed through taxes, that fiscal austerity–all of these, which only benefit the large monopolies, are claimed as being the fault of the anarchists.”
