[Weird I just knew this was coming...I put Marcos back in my auto-searches because I just had a little feeling that he was going to reappear soon...and BLAM! Here is is again...] CONFERENCE INVITATION FROM SUBCOMANDANTE INSURGENTE MARCOS EJÉRCITO ZAPATISTA DE LIBERACIÓN NACIONAL. MEXICO. October 2008 To: Planet Earth From: Subcomandante Insurgente Marcos. Chiapas, Mexico. Receive the regards of the men, women, children and elders of the EZLN and my own. As we had already announced, we, the Zapatistas think that now (maybe even before) there is a rage against everything that is going on, in our country as well as in the world. This rage is not mere anger or resentment, but rather has two essential elements: it is a rage that is the consequence of an injured dignity and it is a creative rage, that is, it points towards a transformation of the situation. We also see that there are many differences between these proud rages that we see, listen to and feel. Not just in that which is obvious (such as geography), but also in the way and the path, destination, speed and rhythm of their steps. Nevertheless, we think they have something in common: the aggressor who causes this rage is the same one: a system, capitalism, which destroys dignity above all. That is why our idea of making some sort of encounter, came; a space where these rages could find, meet, learn and relate to each other. The Mexican Zapatistas have named this space the “FESTIVAL MUNDIAL DE LA DIGNA RABIA” and think the presence of you and your organization, your ear and word, is necessary. That is why we want to invite you to take part in this “Festival de la Digna Rabia” which is to be held in Mexico City, and in the Chiapas zapatista, from December the 26th 20a08 to January the 5th 2009. We hope that you are able to come. Vale. Salud and may ideas find and find each other. From the mountains of the Mexican Southeast Subcomandante Insurgente Marcos. Mexico, October 2008. P.S.- Enclosed you will find a letter with the details of the event from the compañero Sergio Rodríguez Lazcano, director in chief of Rebeldía magazine.
