<nettime> ON JUNE 10, JOIN THE ONGOING VIRTUAL SIT-IN, AGAINST THE WAR IN CHIAPAS


We are here. We do not surrender. Zapata is alive, and in spite of
everything, the struggle continues."

                   --Fourth Declaration of the Lacandona Jungle

ON JUNE 10, JOIN THE ONGOING VIRTUAL SIT-IN,
AGAINST THE WAR IN CHIAPAS,
FLOOD A MEXICAN GOVERMENT WEB SITE!

                   The Electronic Disturbance Theater plans to target an

agency within the Mexican government that has been responsible for the
expulsion of international human rights observers from Chiapas for a
Virtual Sit-In. On Wendnesday *June 10th* the next scene of Electronic
Civil Disobedience will take place between 11am to 5 pm Eastern Standard

Time.

                   (10:00 a.m. to 4:00 pm Mexico City Time)

                   (4:00 to 10:00 p.m. Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)

                   To join the action just click this URL

                   http://www.nyu.edu/projects/wray/June10.html

                   and activate the Zapatista FloodNet between these
hours.

                   The Electronic Disturbance Theater understands that
the marked increase in deportations of international observers since the

beginning of this year, along with new efforts to make entry into Mexico

more difficult, is part of a Mexican government's strategy to remove
witnesses from the conflict zone in Chiapas. The group sees this
strategy as part of a longer term program to pacify resource rich
southern Mexico. The first step is the containment and elimination of
the Zapatista communities.

                   The Electronic Disturbance Theater opposes the
Mexican government, the Mexican elite and foreign capital that it
represents. The group supports the Zapatistas and the autonomous
indigenous communities in Chiapas and elsewhere in Mexico.

                   The Electronic Disturbance Theater believes that its
electronic actions against the Mexican government are not colonialist,
as some critics have charged, but are instead anti-colonialist. The
forces of neo-colonialism and neo-liberalism in Mexico are found in the
PRI government, not in its opposition. Resistance to Mexican
neo-colonialism comes from both within and outside of Mexico's
geographic borders. The reality is that the Mexican government does not
represent the sovereign will of the Mexican people, but rather it
represents the will of Mexican elite and foreign capital.

Join the next act of Electronic Civil Disobedience on *June 10.*
