Chiapas: EZLN Announces Mobilization against “Capitalist Wars”


In a communiqué on March 9th, the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN) proposed the start of a world campaign against the wars of capital whatever their geography. They announced that they will participate in the demonstrations that will take place in Chiapas on March 13th.

Here is the communiqué:



To the National and International Sixth:

To those who signed the Declaration for Life:

To honest people around the world:

In agreement with some individuals, groups, collectives, organizations and movements of SLUMIL K’AJXEMK’OP, the Zapatista communities have agreed to call for mobilizations and demonstrations against ALL capitalist WARS, currently underway in various corners of the planet. It is not only in Ukraine. Also in Palestine, Kurdistan, Syria, the Mapuche people, the original peoples throughout the planet, and so many libertarian processes that are attacked, persecuted, murdered, silenced, distorted.

Responding to that call, we have agreed to participate in the mobilizations on Sunday, March 13th, 2022, and thus continue with the actions against the wars that the system perpetrates throughout the world.

We therefore propose the start of a world campaign against the wars of capital, whatever their geography. Organize concerts, meetings, festivals, meetings, etc. In short, the arts against wars.

We call on all honest people, groups, collectives, organizations and movements in Mexico and in the world, according to their times and ways -and preserving their independence and autonomy-, to join the activities to demand an end to wars , starting on Sunday 13th.

For their part, the Zapatista communities will demonstrate, on Sunday, March 13th, 2022, in their caracoles, in the municipal capitals of San Cristóobal de Las Casas, Yajalon, Palenque, Ocosingo, Las Margaritas, Altamirano and on the roadsides in the communities, with a some thousands of Zapatistas.

Against all wars: all arts, all resistances, all rebellions!

From the mountains of the Mexican southeast.

Zapatista Sixth Commission.

Mexico, March 2022.
