“Did you hear? It’s the sound of their world collapsing”
The Zapatistas are back! From the dark of night, the command of the Zapatista Army of National Liberation has just released the following communiqué.
As one Maya era draws to an end, and thousands of Zapatistas silently re-emerge from the dark of night to peacefully occupy the town squares of Chiapas, Subcomandante Marcos of the Zapatista Army of National Liberation releases this defiant communiqué from the depths of the Lacandon jungle.
Comunique of the Clandestine Revolutionary Indigenous Committee — General Command of the Zapatista Army of National Liberation.

To whom it may concern
DID YOU HEAR?
It is the sound of their world collapsing.
It is that of our comeback.
The day that was the day, used to be night.
And night will be the day, that will be the day.
From the Mountains of the Mexican Southeast.
On behalf of the Clandestine Revolutionary Indigenous Committee — General Command of the EZLN
Subcomandante Insurgente Marcos
Mexico, December 2012
