Comandante Tacho (

Zapatistas affirmed their solidarity with Palestine, during the opening of the National Indigenous Congress in the Zapatista Stronghold of La Realidad, Chiapas, near the Guatemala border.

Comandante Tacho, spoke to Indigenous Peoples from throughout Mexico, as they arrived for the National Indigenous Congress, August 4-8, with a press conference planned for Saturday in the jungle stronghold.

Comandante Tacho said the people of Palestine, like the Indigenous Peoples, will survive the Conquistadors and oppressors.

"We grew, forgotten by the powerful, for 500 years in all of the corners of our Mexican homeland. We as originary peoples were ignored, deceived, forgotten, exploited, and enslaved in their dominion for more than 500 years.

"And now, through the rise of the neoliberal powers, the machine of destruction appears once again to disappear our peoples.

"They have made it bigger and more modern, supported by laws and bad governments, in order to invade us once again.

"It has a new plan of dispossession, dispossessing us of our mother earth using the machinery of the power of money, looting the riches that mother earth has held and kept safe for millions of years.

"With this machine comes the death and destruction of our peoples and our mother earth."
