As had been announced in the previous communique made by the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN) “Bad and not so bad news” (November 2013), the “Zapatista Rebelliousness” magazine has been born, as directed and written by indigenous Zapatistas.

In the first volume, an editorial signed by Subcomandante Insurgente Moisés presents the magazine: “We have spent 30 years constructing how to think and live better, this before the people of Mexico and of the world.  Humble but sanely  the autonomous way we want to govern ourselves has been decided by thousands of women and men.  There is nothing hidden in what we are doing or what we seek and desire; instead it is there for everyone to see […].  We are sharing with our comrades from Mexico and the world our humble thought of a new world we desire and think about.”

The magazine also features more reviews of the Zapatista Escuelita from BAEZLN themselves: “In this first volume we will begin to share the words and thoughts of our comrade Zapatista support bases, families, guardians, teachers, on how they see the Escuelita that we have been presenting, and also how they saw the student comrades.”  With reference to anarchists, Subcomandante Insurgente Moisés notes that “there are other brothers and sisters who are rebels and not indigenous who can write and share in this medium, so as to share how it is that they think and how they see this system that desires to put an end to planet Earth.  For this reason, in this volume we share some words provided by anarchist comrades.”
