For a long time I been wanting to come out with certain DIMEX inspired T-Shirts collections that pay tribute to certain movements/characters that have inspired the brand to become what it is. One of those movements has to be the EZLN. Their movement struck the world when they decided to be heard by raising their arms against the Mexican military in order to obtain peace and tranquility from the governing laws and corporate incursions on their territory. They don’t consider themselves anything just people that want to work their lands and avoid any mexican government/corporate involvement with their territory that once belonged to them the “Maya”.
” We don’t want to impose our solutions by force, we want to create a democratic space. We don’t see armed struggle in the classic sense of previous guerrilla wars, that is as the only way and the only all-powerful truth around which everything is organized. In a war, the decisive thing is not the military confrontation but the politics at stake in the confrontation. We didn’t go to war to kill or be killed. We went to war in order to be heard.”
—Subcomandante Marcos
This tribute in T-Shirt form is coming soon and will be available at our Dimex Store as well as in most of our Stockist. Hope you like it, and “Hasta La Victoria Siempre”.
