"Cheran is not completely independent - it still has state and federal funding. But its autonomy as an indigenous Purepecha community is recognised and underwritten by the Mexican government. Its ban on political parties, meanwhile, has been upheld by the courts, which have confirmed its right not to participate in local, state or federal elections.
So why has it succeeded - thrived even - in such a cruel but beautiful region? Margarita, Melissa and Heriberto will give you the same one-word answer: solidaridad - solidarity.
...armed checkpoints were established on the three main roads coming in to town.
The police and local politicians were quickly driven out of town because the people suspected they were collaborating with the criminal networks. Political parties were banned - and still are - because they were deemed to have caused divisions between people. And each of the four districts of Cheran elected representatives to a ruling town council. In many ways, Cheran - a town populated by the indigenous Purepecha people - returned to its roots: to the ancient way of doing things, independent of outsiders.
"As long as there's at least one person that wants to keep this up, we will all stand behind them. We all feel proud because we stopped something, and did something that none of the other communities dared to do." Quotes by the BBC:
Maybe I missed a reference to the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion. The document itself is regarded as a forgery or plagiarized. Here are some definitions.
- take (the work or an idea of someone else) and pass it off as one's own.
forg·ery | \ ˈfȯr-jə-rē \
1: the crime of falsely making or changing a written paper or signing someone else's name
2: something that is falsely made or copied
Even with these defintions, assuming the document is defined by either, the reality more than implicates what is happening to us as true. The Art of War by Sun Tzu holds these ideals for obtaining and holding power similar to The Protocols. Machiavelli is possibly another example of where these Zionist ideals may have originated. Regardless, who ever holds these utilities of power can and will be stopped. The path has been shown to us and we must move forward to achieve our freedom over our destiny.
