http://www.congresocomunalidad2015.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/cartel-web3.jpgIn the last week the "First International Congress on Comunalidad" about communal struggles and strategies has taken place in Puebla, México.  It was a plural space with the aim of engaging in rigorous and profound discussions on economic, social and political issues related to the horizons opened through community-popular struggles. This debates on comunalidad, communalism, and struggles for the commons have proven their relevance for the understanding of new social and political problems in moments of crises of capitalism.

Hereafter summary of the article about oaxacan comunalidad  by  the zapotec anthropologist Jaime Martínez Luna, who took part in the Congress:

The history of Oaxaca has been interwoven with principles and values that display its deeply rooted comunalidad. For the Oaxacan people across many centuries, this has meant integrating a process of cultural, economic, and political resistance of great importance. Since the Spanish conquest individualist and mercantilist as it was Oaxaca has responded with a form and reason for being communal that has permitted it to survive even in the face of an globalizing process. The concept of comunalidad, can be seen as the central concept in Oaxacan life. 

nos-faltan-43The report issued on September 6 by the Interdisciplinary Group of Independent Experts (GIEI) concludes that the Mexican government’s version of the fate of the 43 forcibly disappeared students from Ayotzinapa is wrong and not substantiated by scientific evidence.

Human Rights Activists deeply troubled by the government’s grave mishandling of the case. Experts’ call for the government to pursue further lines of investigation to clarify what happened to the students and provide truth and justice to their families.

The group of renowned experts on criminal prosecutions and human rights was formed by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) based on an agreement with the students’ families, their representatives, and the Mexican government. Their report reflects six months of extensive work to search for the students, investigate those responsible, provide attention to the surviving victims of the attacks and victims’ families, and to develop proposals regarding enforced disappearances in Mexico.

However, after four and a half years, far from eradicating the serious and systematic human rights violations, the current government indifference and lack of action deepened the long time serious situation of injustice that the state had lived. Proof of this is that so far remain unpunished all the grievances committed by the government against the social movement in 2006, a suspicious impunity that shows the existence of a fact amnesty for crimes against humanity committed during the previous administration, headed by Ulises Ruiz Ortiz. In Oaxaca, a state of emergency exists undeclared. The military and police presence arranged between Gabino Cue and Enrique Peña Nieto evidences the policy of criminalization to the social protest. To “guarantee” the Election Day was only an excuse to set Oaxaca, in fact, under siege.

On a sunny afternoon in July 2013 we sat in a blockade in Alvaro Obregon, in the municipality of Juchitán, Oaxaca, along the southern Isthmus of Tehuantepec, to listen to fishers and farmers reflect on life at the Isthmus. Since 2012, these Istmeños have blocked the only access road to the Barra de Santa Teresa—a thin strip of sand and mangroves that separates the Mar Superior from the Mar Inferior on the Pacific coast of the Isthmus—to stop the construction of what would be Latin America’s largest wind-farm: the San Dionisio project. The now shelved project would have required 102 turbines and transmission infrastructures, and would have been the eighteenth wind-farm constructed across the southern Isthmus since 2006.
