In this month of March, we spread our word from behind these four walls. We join the peaceful mobilizations for the end of the capitalist war against Indigenous peoples, and an end to the exploitation of mother earth. The capitalist system does nothing more than continue to invade and conquer, in order to exploit, murder, and destroy everything in its path, dispossessing Indigenous peoples of their resources to enrich the few at the expense of the innocent.
Capitalism is dedicated to inciting war, invading countries and towns for economic reasons, and investing in the creation of more weapons to destroy the people. Meanwhile, the people continue to suffer from hunger and necessity leading us towards global destruction.
As conscious people, we respect and defend life knowing that we are one with mother earth. Our existence is a harmonious part of her.
For that, we shout for an end to the war in Ukraine, Syria, and Palestine, and we express our solidarity with all the victims of the political war of capitalism.
End political persecution!
End forced disappearances!
End prefabricated imprisonments!
Yes to justice!
Yes to freedom!
Yes to life!
Long live the dignified resistance and rebellion!
Until we are all free!
