Sic Vita



Like to the falling of a star,
Or as the flights of eagles are,
Or like the fresh spring's gaudy hue,
Or silver drops of morning dew,
Or like a wind that chafes the flood,
Or bubbles which on water stood:

We Are All Zapatistas



Behind our black mask,
Behind our armed voice,
Behind our unnameable name,
Behind what you see of us,
Behind this we are you,
Behind this we are the same simple --
Ordinary men and women
That are repeated in all races,
Painted in all colors,
Speak in all languages
And live in all places.
Behind this we are you.
Brothers and sisters from all over the world
Welcome to this corner of the world
Where we are all equal because we are different
Welcome to the search for life
And the struggle against death.

- Major Ana María, Chiapas, Mexico
