June 22, 2015 – Links International Journal of Socialist Renewal – With the growing intersection among the campaigns for justice for the 43 disappeared students and the resistance movements’ struggle against the privatisation of natural resources and nationalised industries, the rhythm of resistance activities has not slackened over the last year, despite the mid-term elections. This is why the People’s and Worker’s Political Organization (OPT) sees the urgency to taking stock and projecting what immediate steps to take. This report is based on the gathering Mexico City’s OPT branch in Tlalpan organised preparatory to the campaigns it will participate in for the latter half of the year.

Elections

The world press covered the elections held throughout the country on June 7. Governors of half of the states were contested, along with half of each chamber of the national legislature and a large number of local officials in all jurisdictions. The capital, Mexico City, is demarcated into 16 districts (Delegaciones), and all 16 district heads changed.

Mexico: Caravana nacional del pueblo autóctono yaqui en defensa del agua, tierra, trabajo y vida

A Juventud Anticapitalista canta mientras espera la llegada de la Caravana yaqui.

Mayo 30, 2015 – Links International Journal of Socialist Renewal -- El pueblo autóctono yaqui organizó una caravana que atravesó el país con el propósito de defender del agua, tierra, trabajo y vida. Culminó en México, D.F., el jueves 21 de mayo.

El autor de este artículo participó en una de las ceremonias de bienvenida ese día: la que celebró la llegada a la Delegación Tlalpan en el sur de la Ciudad; él tomó las fotos.

Al pueblo yaqui se les despojaron en incrementos a lo largo de los siglos desde la conquista española, hecho que aumenta con la dominación norteamericana. Organizaron la Caravana como una aportación en aumentar la unidad entre los que resistan el neoliberalismo depredador.

Como se aprecia en las fotos, la solidaridad expresada por la ceremonia en Tlalpan emprendió la Organización Política del Pueblo y los Trabajadores, la Juventud Anticapitalista y el Sindicato Mexicana de Electricistas. De igual forma el Sindicato de Trabajadores de Transporte de Pasajeros del Distrito Federal prestó su camión para la carvana.

Mexico: National caravan by Indigenous Yaqui in defence of water, land, work and life

Anticapitalist Youth await Yaqui caravan.

Article and photos by Nevin Siders, Mexico City

May 26, 2015 – Links International Journal of Socialist Renewal -- The indigenous Yaqui people held a caravan that crisscrossed the country to defend of water, land, work and life. It culminated in Mexico City on May 21. I participated in one of the welcoming ceremonies that day, in Tlalpan district in the south of the city.

The Yaqui people have been dispossessed by degrees over the centuries since the Spanish conquest, which has only increased since domination by the United States. They organised the caravan as a step toward increasing unity among those who resist neoliberalism and its predatory practices.

As the photos attest, solidarity in the Tlalpan ceremony was organised by the People’s and Worker’s Political Organization (OPT), the Anticapitalist Youth (JA) and the Mexican Electricians’ Union (SME). Use of the caravan bus was donated by the Union of Passenger Transportation Workers in Mexico City (STTP-DF).

January 5, 2015 – Links International Journal of Socialist Renewal -- The People’s and Worker’s Political Organization (Organización Política del Pueblo y los Trabajadores, OPT)  held its first national congress in Mexico City on the weekend of December 12 and 13, 2014.

Since its founding in 2011, the party has grown to have local units registered in 16 of Mexico’s 32 states. According to convention organisers, 200 members attended the convention held in the headquarters of the Mexican Electricians Trade Union (SME), which was the protagonist for its founding in 2011 and has continued to press for it as an alternative to the parties of capital and their hangers-on.
