On December 21, 2012, with the silent mobilization of 40,000 Zapatista support bases in the cities of Ocosingo, Las Margaritas, Palenque, Altamirano and San Cristobal, the EZLN sent the following communique.
DID YOU HEAR IT? It’s the sound of their world collapsing.
It’s the sound of ours resurging.
The day that was the day, was night.
And night will be the day that will be day.
Democracy! Freedom! Justice!
