Voici un vidéo traitant d’Amado Avendaño Figuera, personnage ayant vécu la rébellion des Zapatistes du Chiapas du 31 décembre 1994.

Voilà maintenant un petit bout que je suis parti! Je me relance donc dès maintenant avec un vidéo traitant d’Amado Avendaño Figuera, personnage ayant vécu la rébellion des Zapatistes du Chiapas du 31 décembre 1994.J’ai avec le vidéo un texte décrivant le contexte de tout cela, cependant pour le moment il n’est pas traduit dans la langue de Molière. C’est un texte en anglais, mais je vous rassure que les versions française et espagnole ne tarderont pas à sortir (n’est-ce pas Ricardo? 😉 ).

Amado Avendaño Figueroa, Ex-Governor of Zapatists Rebellion in Chiapas, December 31th 1994


It is heard that one known as Iyotanka Tatanka (Sitting Bull) once said:
“Let us put our minds together and see what life we can make for our children.”

We must be able to use our minds, to think clearly, if we are to actin a good way to the benefit of our children and their’s. Having truthful knowledge and information helps us to have clarity.

One who walked among us, Amado Avendaño, helped so much to provide truthful informations. In addition to being a journalist, he was anattorney, a defender of the rights of the Zapatista peoples, and the first governor in rebellion of Chiapas.

Amado was chosen by the indigenous peoples of Chiapas to be their candidate for govenor after the Zapatista uprising in 1994. Those in control feared him and murdered several people while trying to assassinate him.

Avendaños said he felt as if they had already assassinated him, adding that he no longer feared anything, not even death. “They already assassinated me once. That’s why the government and my enemies don’t have anything left they can do against me now.”

Though Amado received the most votes, oppressors refused to allow him to take his rightful office. He then formed a government in rebellion, for service in which it was said:

Don Amado Avendano has acquitted himself well” – Subcomandante Insurgente Marcos – 8 December 2000 – on the end of Amado’s 6-year term as Governor in Rebellion of Chiapas.

Though suffering some permanent damage from the attack on his life, Amado persisted in resisting the oppression.

Amado said that he had worked 45 years as a journalist, based on one secret: “The truth must be told, no matter how hard it is to tell it: that is the key to good journalism.

On 26 April 2004, Amado told a budding journalist: “In Bolivia, in Latin America, and throughout the hemisphere, the system and this low intensity war obligate us to fight, and the journalists must also enter this fight with everything we have.

Just three days later, word came of Amado’s walking on, leaving us a fine example of fearless crusader, in resistance to injustice and oppression.

Mexico loses a significant fighter, Chiapas one of its greatest sons, the indigenous peoples a brother, and the Zapatistas a friend… Amado was an attentive and respectful ear for the pain of the Chiapas indigenous, even before the war against oblivion began… he listened when most were deaf and he looked when many were blind.” –Subcomandante Marcos

For those who were never blessed by personally meeting and listening to Amado, here’s a video that will give you a small glimpse into his big spirit and good heart.

This video was recorded 28 December 2003 on the tenth anniversary of the Zapatista Uprising, just months prior to Amado’s pre-mature passing. It is one of, if not the, last interviews with him to be soarchived.

It’s good to know that we are not alone. It’s so good to know that in this hemisphere and in the world there are many crazies who fight against a rotten society. We have to do journalism, also, to change the world, thinking about the future of our children and grandchildren” — Amado Avendaño Figueroa, 26 April 2004.
