ACSCopyShop: Krise, Katastrophe, Kopierer kaputt

Unsere Compas vom ACS Copy Shop brauchen unsere Solidarität.

Seit 2021 existiert in Bonn der kollektiv betriebene “ACS Copy shop”.

Der Plan ist aufgegangen: aus einer träumerischen Idee ist ein laufender Laden geworden, welcher die Stammkundschaft des alten Betreibers übernehmen konnte und darüber hinaus sowohl deutschlandweit als auch international tolle Zusammenarbeit mit linken Projekten leistet.

Dennoch hat der Laden durch die herrschende Coronakrise finanzielle Einbußen gemacht und jetzt hat auch noch der für das Buisness unentbehrliche Drucker den Geist aufgegeben.

Deswegen ist der ACS nun auf unsere Hilfe angewiesen, damit diese sinnvolle Arbeit weitergehen kann.

Wenn ihr könnt, gebt gerne etwas dazu, jeder Euro hilft!

Triqui occupation brutally evicted on April 25th 2022 in Bellas Artes, Mexico City

In the early morning on April 25th the Mexican police and special forces evicted the one year old occupation of the indigenous Triqui community, that is fighting for justice after suffering murder, political persecution and displacement in their territories in Tierra Blanca, San Juan and San Miguel Copala, Oaxaca. 

Approximately 50 Triqui people are being held custody on a polluted parking lot at this moment after experiencing a brutal eviction at 1 am on April 25th 2022 involving humiliation of women and violation of children, one of them having an open lesion on their head. Governmental forces are trying to divide the children from their parents. 

The Triqui communities live in the Mixtec region of Oaxaca where groups such as MULT (Movimiento de Unidad y Lucha Triqui) have positioned themselves as armed groups that control the territory. Triqui are demanding a safe relocation to their territories aswell as the release of all charges against the political prisoners and resolution of the murders.

As the persecution continues the release of all Triqui being held in custody is being demanded as the danger of deportation to Oaxaca or having their kids being separated from their parents would lead to repression and possible murder.

Spread the information and solidarize with the Triqui from Sierra Blanca! 
We demand to the government of Claudia Sheinbum and Andrés Manuel López Obrador:

  1. Immediate cessation of the encapsulation made to our sisters and brothers in the Venustiano Carranza Delegation.
  2. Appearance of the Triqui boy Samuel and guarantee the physical, psychological and mental integrity of all the people who were in the shelter (UPDATE: Samuel has appeared).
  3. Punishment of those responsible for the operations carried out against the Triqui community and the Caravan for Life.
  4. Resolution of the conflict of displacement of the Triqui community of Tierra Blanca, Copala.

New aggressions by the paramilitary group ORCAO in Zapatista territory

(From: Radio Zapatista, original in Spanish by Red de Resistencia y Rebeldía AJMAQ.)

In the face of the aggressions with firearms against the EZLN Support Bases of the autonomous community of Moisés and Gandhi on October 13, 2021 in Chiapas-Mexico, we DEMAND:

Immediate cease to the criminal actions of the ORCAO paramilitaries!

Cease the harassment of the Autonomies and Life built by the EZLN!

Jobel, Chiapas, México
14 October 2021

To the people of the world
To the National Indigenous Congress
To the Indigenous Government Council
To the National and International Sixth
To the Networks of Resistance and Rebellion

Brothers and sisters, compañeros and compañeras,

The Good Government Council “Nuevo Amanecer en Resistencia y Rebeldía por la Vida y la Humanidad”, Caracol 10 “Floreciendo la Semilla Rebelde,” informed Red de Resistencia y Rebeldía AJMAQ that, slightly over a month after the arbitrary detention of the autonomous authorities José Antonio Sánchez Juárez and Sebastián Núñez Pérez, by the paramilitary group of the Regional Organization of Coffee Growers from Ocosingo (Orcao).

That same group, last night, 13 October 2021, at approximately 20:30, once again attacked the bases of support of the EZLN of the autonomous community of Moisés and Gandhi.

At 1:25 this morning, the gunfire increased, reaching the Autonomous Middle School. At 2:20, the strongly armed group were positioned only 90 feet from the homes of the families bases of support of the EZLN, who were therefore forcefully displaced in search of a safe shelter.

The aggressions of the paramilitary group ended at approximately 3:30, according to information from the Good Government Council.

We demand respect to the land and territory of the Zapatista peoples, their autonomy and free determination.

No more criminal actions by the ORCAO paramilitary group!
No more harassment against the autonomy and life built by the EZLN!
Red de Resistencia y Rebeldía AJMAQ

We demand the end of the war against the Zapatista communities.

Solidarity with Fidencio Aldama

The following letter was written by Migrantifa NRW and the Arts & Culture group of the German coordination of the Zapatista trip.

Hello Fidencio,

We write this letter to you from the territory known as Europe.

First we want to ask you, how are you?
Secondly, we want to thank you for fighting for life and for not giving up nor selling out.
Thirdly, we want to tell you why we are writing this letter to you.

Thanks to the campaign launched recently by “Fidencio libre” we were able to approach people with your story and that helped us activate and organize to demand your freedom.

We know the state, both in Mexico and Europe, is a mere servant of the powerful and their Capital. That is why here too, we see how the police attacks and send people to jail who defend land, water and our mother Earth. In Germany, we have friends in places like the Hambach forest, Keyenberg and Lützerath where brave people like you risk their lives so we all can have a good life, a decent one with dignity. Here’s is a video of some of them (we hope you have the possibility to watch it):

The network in Rheinland organizing the Zapatista trip in Germany.

Another group that we told about your campaign is Migrantifa NRW, a group of and for migrants in Rheinland that fights against racism, antisemitism and fascism. They are also fighting an important struggle to abolish Frontex, a border agency of our bad government: the European Union. They are responsible of violating human rights and separating families through deportation. Their policies are racists and server the interest of the colonial and capitalist powers. We agree with them that this inhumane group must be abolish, just as we believe in your freedom.

People from this group are also very talented and kind. When we told them your story and explained that there is a campaign to demand your freedom they were very excited to contribute and they painted this mural in solidarity.

In Europe we also have political prisoners, like the case of Gabriel Pombo da Silva, an Anarchist who has spent most of his life behind bars but hasn’t giving up and keeps fighting against Capitalism and repression. (https://enoughisenough14.org/2021/05/22/campaign-for-the-release-of-gabriel-pombo-da-silva/)

Gabriel was born in Vigo, Spain, which is the port the Zapatistas decided to land their vanguard delegation, the 421 Squad.

We hope the arrival of the Zapatistas to continental Europe will show Mexico and the world how there’s no such thing as “good” Capitalism. We wish people here in Europe also get to know of your life and struggle. Finally, we hope enough people will wake up to demand freedom for you, Gabriel and every political prisoner who is suffering repression from an unjust system of “justice”.

From the SLUMIL K´AJXEMK´OP, the Europe that doesn’t give up, we send you a big hug and we want to let you know that you are not alone, we fight with you and we will keep telling your story until we see you free.

May 8, 2021 – Paramilitary Group Deprives Pedro Lunez Perez of his Life as the National Guard Patrols Nearby

(Text from our friends in Schools for Chiapas.)

Pedro Lunez Pérez , of Coco, Aldama was shot inside of his home by paramilitary fire while National Guard patrolled. nearby.

The Fray Bartolomé de Las Casas Human Rights Center (Frayba) received information from the Permanent Commission of the 115 Community Members and Displaced Persons of Aldama, stating that today, around 2:00 p.m., Mr. Pedro Lunez Pérez, 24 years old, lost his life. This appalling and irreversible incident occurred in the community of Coco, municipality of Aldama, while Pedro Lunez was inside his house. It is the result of constant gunfire by the paramilitary group located in the territory of Santa Martha, municipality of Chenalho, which enjoys total impunity.

Since yesterday, the gunfire from the territory of Santa Martha, municipality of Chenalho, has been directed towards the inhabitants of the municipality of Aldama, Chiapas. The Permanent Commission of the 115 community members and displaced persons of Aldama, once again reported that today, at approximately 2:00 p.m., the armed aggressions began again. The unfortunate death occurred while the National Guard and state police were near the community of Coco.

At the close of this urgent action, the armed attacks by the Santa Martha paramilitary group continued. At approximately 16:29 hours, gunshots were fired from El Puente, Santa Martha Chenalhó, in the direction of the community of Juxton, municipality of Aldama. At 17:44 hours, high caliber gunfire came from the attack points of Tijera Caridad, Puente, Kante, Panteón, and Chuchte de Santa Martha Chenalhó.

The Mayan Tsotsil population living in the communities of Coco, Tabac, Xuxchen, San Pedro Cotzilnam, Chayomte, Juxton, Tselejpotobtic, Yeton, Chivit, Sepelton, Yoctontik and the Municipal Seat of Aldama, recently benefited from the granting of Precautionary Measure no. 284-18, according to Resolution 35/2021 of April 23, 2021, of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR), where it considered “that the situation meets prima facie the requirements of gravity, urgency and irreparability contained in Article 25 of the Rules of Procedure of the IACHR”, requesting that the Mexican State:

A) Adopt the necessary, and culturally relevant, security measures to protect the life and personal integrity of the beneficiary families; specifically, to guarantee security within their communities, and during their displacements, with a view to preventing threats, harassment, intimidation or acts of armed violence by third parties;

B) Agree on the measures to be adopted with the beneficiaries and their representatives; and

C) Report on the actions taken to investigate the facts that gave rise to the adoption of this precautionary measure and thus prevent its repetition.

Frayba expresses its deep concern for the unfortunate incidents that took place today, once again the Tsotsil people are in mourning. It also points out that it is very serious that the Mexican State is still not implementing the precautionary measures in order to prevent armed attacks, so we urgently demand the adoption of the precautionary measures granted by the IACHR in favor of the Mayan Tsotsil population of the municipality of Aldama; We also demand an exhaustive investigation to find those responsible for the armed attacks by paramilitary groups that act under the cover of impunity, terrorizing, torturing and displacing the population and that have resulted, in addition to the loss of human lives, as the Mexican government’s failure to intervene effectively bets on the extermination of the people.

We call on national and international solidarity to sign this urgent action and write to the Mexican authorities to disarm the violence in the territory.

You can sign the petition here: denuncia Frayba. Thank you.

The Caravan for Life has started

Indigene Delegation aus Mexiko auf dem Weg nach Europa

Am Montag, den 3. Mai 2021, verließ eine Delegation von Maya-Indigenen aus dem südmexikanischen Bundesstaat Chiapas den amerikanischen Kontinent, um nach Europa zu segeln. Sieben Mitglieder der „Zapatistischen Autonomiebewegung“, benannt nach dem mexikanischen Revolutionsgeneral von 1910, Emiliano Zapata, gingen vor der „Isla Mujeres“ („Insel der Frauen“) an Bord des Segelschiffes “La Montaña”, um nach einer rund sechswöchigen Überfahrt europäisches Festland zu betreten.

Der Name dieser Insel ist Programm für die gesamte Reise, denn es werden weitere indigene Delegationen folgen, die sich zu mindestens drei Vierteln aus Frauen und Anderen Geschlechtern zusammensetzen und neben der zapatistischen EZLN dem Congreso Nacional Indígena sowie der FPDTA-MPT angehören.

Eine Abordnung des CNI überreicht der Delegation die Maya-Fahne; Foto: Daliri Oropeza.

Ein Ziel dieser „Karawane für das Leben“ ist es, am 13. August 2021, genau 500 Jahre nach der Kolonisierung Mexikos durch Spanien, in Madrid an die Türen der Macht zu klopfen und den Herrschenden zu sagen: „Vor 500 Jahren habt ihr begonnen, uns zu kolonisieren, aber ihr habt es nie geschafft, uns zu besiegen.“ Dies ist jedoch nicht der einzige Grund für den Besuch der indigenen Delegation in Europa.

Einladung von Basisbewegungen „von unten und links“

Eingeladen hat ein breites Bündnis linker europäischer Basisbewegungen, die vor allem zu den Schwerpunkten Feminismus und Gendergerechtigkeit, Antirassismus, Antifaschismus, Klimagerechtigkeit und Antikapitalismus arbeiten und zum Teil in Alternativen Strukturen und Ökonomien leben.

In Deutschland bezeichnen die Aktivist*innen ihre Organisation als „Netz der Rebellion“. Beabsichtigt ist ein Austausch von Aktivist*innen in fast allen europäischen Ländern mit der insgesamt rund 160 Menschen umfassenden Delegation, bei dem es um nichts weniger als um das Überleben der Menschheit und um den Schutz des selbstbestimmten Lebens gehen soll.

„Zu lange schon werden die zentralen Probleme der Menschheit weltweit ignoriert, damit die Menschen, Ressourcen und Lebensgrundlagen kapitalistisch verwertet und ausgebeutet werden können“, so die Frankfurter Aktivistin Rosa Flora, Mitglied einer der beteiligten Gruppen. „Solange sich niemand wehrt, wird die Naturzerstörung und die Unterdrückung und Benachteiligung beispielsweise von Frauen oder Indigenen weitergehen. Aber eine Gegengewalt würde die Menschheit nicht retten, der Widerstand muss intelligenter sein, als die kapitalistischen und patriarchalen Aggressoren“, so die Aktivistin weiter.

Die mexikanischen Indigenen bereisen auch Deutschland

In Deutschland formiert sich dieser “Widerstand” aus verschiedenen Bewegungen bereits seit Ende letzten Jahres „von unten und links“, so die Selbstbezeichnung der Aktivist*innen. Sie bereiten den Empfang der mexikanischen Delegation im Sommer dieses Jahres vor. „Durch Corona stehen wir dabei vor einer riesengroßen Herausforderung, aber wenn es zum Beispiel der Fußball schafft, während der gesamten Pandemie Spiele durchzuführen, sollte es ein ebenso lösbares Problem sein, den Austausch von hiesigen Aktivist*innen und Bewegungen mit den mexikanischen Indigenen Corona-konform zu gestalten. Sie können uns viel über Autonomie und Subsistenzwirtschaft, aber auch über Geschlechtergerechtigkeit und Naturbewahrung beibringen“, so der Münsteraner Volker Elan, ein weiterer Aktivist aus dem Netzwerk.

Wann die indigene Delegation aus Mexiko in Deutschland ankommt, ist noch nicht gewiss. Die Vorbereitungen laufen jedoch auf Hochtouren, erste Festivals mit kulturellen Beiträgen finden bereits – online – statt. Einen Spendenaufruf gibt es auch schon, er ist neben weiteren Informationen auf der Homepage des “Ya Basta-Netzes”, einem Zusammenschluss von Solidaritätsgruppen und anderen Initiativen zu finden. Dort gibt es auch mehr Informationen über die “Gira Zapatista” genannte Delegationsreise: www.ya-basta-netz.org

May 1st, 2021

Last Saturday we got to give a speech at the International May 1st Festival.

We thank Frauen*streik Bonn for inviting us and allowing us to share our word. Thank you!

Our stand, thank you to everyone who helped us :D.

I have a dead brother. My brother was killed by a bullet at dawn.
I asked the bullet where it came from. She replied: “From a gun. From a soldier’s gun of the goverment of the powerful who serves another powerful, who serves another throughout the world.”

The bullet that killed my brother does not have a homeland, and neither does the fight that must be fought to prevent more sisters and brothers from being killed.

That is why we made a commitment to unite all the resistances, all the rebellions, all the struggles of Europe from below and to the left.

We have listened to women who live in fear because men considered them objects to be used, abused, raped and murdered.

We have heard from seasonal workers in Bornheim who are exploited and forced to work and live in deplorable conditions.

We have heard exiles from Guinea in Cologne seeking a chance to live in peace and the German state wants to send them back to a certain death.

We have heard Ahmedin from Eritrea who wants to be with his family and the German state gets in the way.

We have heard from artists who are struggling to make ends meet.

We have heard from homeless people who want to live with dignity.

We have heard from people who don’t have any hope left.

But we have not only heard pain, we have also met people and groups who have said enough! People who are getting together, organizing and fighting back.

Groups like Frauen*streik Bonn that fight for gender equality and a world where women live without fear.

Groups like Promo-Guinee-Afrika e.V., AfroConnexions e.V., Guinée Solidaire Organisation, Flüchtlingsrat Rhein-Sieg, Flüchtlingshilfe Bornheim and NoBorders Rheinland that fight to protect exiles and immigrants and to keep families together.

Groups like Hambi Bleibt, Lützi Lebt and Unser Aller Wald that protect our forests and villages against the mining industry, especially the RWE.

Groups like the FAU in Bonn and Düsseldorf, and Global May Day that fight with workers to make sure their labor rights are respected.

Groups like the Myanmar Civil Disobedience Movement fighting for real democracy against a military coup.

We say to all of them that their fight is our fight. The fight for life. #OneWorldOneStruggle: for freedom, unity and solidarity!

We invite all those who fight and resist to the network of rebellions of the Europe of below and to the left. A network that is organizing the trip of the Zapatistas, the National Indigenous Congress of Mexico (CNI) and the Peoples’ Fronts in Defense of Land and Water, Morelos, Puebla, Tlaxcala. This summer we will meet to listen to each other, organize ourselves and demand justice.

Justice for our sisters and brothers of the CNI and the CIPOG-EZ who were killed by the paramilitary group “Los Ardillos”.

Justice for our dead brother who was killed by a bullet at dawn: Samir Flores Soberanes

#SamirVive, la lucha sigue.
(Samir lives, the struggle continues,)

Against the mining Industry

The following groups are fighting against the mining industry to protect our land, water and forest. They have our full support. Thank you for fighting for a better world.

If you know of other groups fighting against the mining industry, please let us know.
