arnoldo garcía: no one dies




Sup Marcos committed revolutuonary suicide,

revolutuonary reincarnation,

a revolutionary act of self-immolation

so that Galeano would rise alive unwounded,

a spirit made flesh with paliacate smiles,

a zapatista Phoenix taking flight

from the ashes of that pipe-smoking masked brother.


Si Che viviera, también se llamara Galeano..,


Marcos stepped down

and Galeano stepped up.

Life trumps death.

Communities trump corporations.

Neozapatismo trumps neoliberalism.


As always with the zapatistas,

the creativity of life


the dogmas of death.




and no one dies….
