“All of us know, whether or not we are able to admit it, that mirrors can only lie, that death by drowning is all that awaits one there. It is for this reason that love is so desperately sought and so   cunningly avoided. Love takes off the masks that we fear that we cannot live without and know we cannot live within.”
— James Baldwin, “The Fire Next Time”

Zapatismo: From Intuition to Practice

watermelon1. GLOBAL WAR

“The Fourth World War is destroying humanity as globalization is universalizing the market, and everything human which the logic of the  market is an enemy and must be destroyed. In this sense, we are all the enemy to be vanquished: indigenous, non-indigenous, human rights observers,  teachers, intellectuals, and artists. Anyone who believes themselves to be free and is not.”

“We declare that we will make a collective network of all our particular struggles and resistences, and intercontinental network of resistance against neoliberalism, and intercontinental network for humanity. This intercontinental network of resistance will strive to find itself in other resistances around the world….This intercontinental network of resistance is not an organizing structure: it has no central head or decision-maker; it has no central command or hierarchies. We are the network, all of us who resist.”
— Subcomandante Insurgente Marcos
