94 Years After the Assassination of Ricardo Flores Magón

This is a commemoration (not as memorable dates but to a life filled with rebellion) to all the ungovernable and maladjusted that have battled the state in its purest essence; capitalism, militarism, domination and oppression; against the industrialization of thought, whatever its forms or modes; why not also say against injustice and coercive justice.

We take brief account of the damages, especially remembering the comrades that have had their lives snatched by the cages of human misery.  We remember those because their spirits have spread the pathway toward freedom. In particular, we remember Ricardo Flores Magón.  As Librado Rivera told us in a letter in 1923, where he spoke of the assassination of Magón in the Leavenworth penitentiary:

“If his sudden death deprived him of seeing his cherished ideals of freedom, love and justice, those dreams of happiness didn’t disappear with him: they live as beacons of light illuminating the minds of humanity that suffer the torture of hunger and misery”.

As such, 94 years after his assassination, his ideals still resonate with us. Above all is the quest for justice and the dreams of happiness, walking together with our brothers and sisters that now, everywhere on earth, live incarcerated in penitentiaries, seeking to maintain their wings which others have sought to break.  To you all, it must be mentioned, we will not forget you!

Equally, today we remember those that day in and day out struggle for freedom against confinement.  For those, we give these words of remembrance, of memory, shouting, demanding…

Freedom for the Political Prisoners of Eloxochitlán de Flores Magón!

Prisoners to the Streets!
