Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN)
October 30th, 2006
To the People of the World
To our Compañer@s who are adherents of the Zezta International
From the Intergalactic Commission of the EZLN
Sisters and brothers.
Compañeras y compañeros.
To the people of Oaxaca who are calling on us, and because of this we are also making a CALL. We should show our commitment to each other in our actions. They are not alone. Just as the compañer@s of the Popular Assembly of the People of Oaxaca are showing us their dignity in struggle.
The call is to create peaceful actions. The occupation of embassies, blockades, marches, encampments, meetings, and protests everywhere in the world on the 1st of November 2006 and again on the 20th of November of the same year. Let us create this global mobilization together on November 1st and November 20th.
Because yesterday [Mexican President] Fox and the government of the rich of Mexico entered with their Federal Police and their helicopters with Mexican soldiers to make an unjust war against the town of Oaxaca, this is what Fox calls dialogue.
There are dead, wounded, incarcerated.
Because of this our call is for:
1. The immediate departure of the Mexican army and federal preventive police.
2. Immediate freedom for our detained compañer@s.
3. Justice for our murdered compañer@s and the punishment of the murderers.
4. Immediate departure of the murderer Ulises Ruiz.
We demand the freedom of our compañer@s political prisoners of the town of Atenco.
Our strength brothers and sisters, because we are the poor of the world, is that we fight together.
The people of Oaxaca are counting on us.
Intergalactic Commission of the EZLN.
Insurgent Lieutenant Colonel Moisés.
