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.

DID YOU HEAR?

It is the sound of your world collapsing.

It is that of ours rising anew.

The day that was the day, used to be night.

And night will be the day, that will be the day.

Democracy!

Freedom!

Justice!

From the Mountains of the Mexican Southeast.
