CCRI-CG of the EZLN and the Rebel Zapatista Autonomous Municipalities of Chiapas

Originally published in Spanish by the CCRI-CG of the EZLN

and the Rebel Zapatista Autonomous Municipalities of Chiapas


Translated by irlandesa

July 19, 2003.

To the People of Mexico:

To the Peoples of the World:

Brothers and Sisters:

This is our word:

FIRST. - The globalization of power has demonstrated throughout

the world that it has entered its most aggressive stage by making

military war its primary weapon of domination. Nonetheless, the

attack against the people of Iraq not only bore witness to

globalization's true destructive nature, but it also provoked the

greatest worldwide condemnation in the history of humanity.

Despite the fallen statues, worldwide resistance and rebellion

have been maintained and are growing. The zapatista rebellion is

just one small part of the great demonstration of human dignity

throughout the planet.

SECOND. - In our country, the Mexican political class (which

includes all registered political parties and the three branches of

the Union) betrayed the hope of millions of Mexicans, and of

thousands of persons from other countries, of seeing the rights

and culture of the Indian peoples of Mexico constitutionally

recognized. A short time ago, Mexican politicians, completely

distanced from reality, gave an excellent demonstration of their

unlimited capacity for the ridiculous, by holding one of the most

comical election campaigns in Mexican history. The high

absenteeism in the July 6 elections was a popular reaction which

they are still refusing to recognize.

THIRD. - In response to all of this, the EZLN has decided to

completely suspend any contact with the Mexican federal

government and the political parties, and the zapatista peoples

have reaffirmed that resistance is their primary means of struggle.

In both communiquis which were released by members of the

CCRI-CG of the EZLN this January 1 in San Cristsbal de las

Casas, Chiapas, we zapatistas reiterated our status as rebels.

We also announced that, despite the stupidity and blindness of

Mexican politicians, the so-called "San Andres Accords on

Indigenous Rights and Culture" (signed by the federal government

and the EZLN on February 16, 1996 and expressed in the

so-called "Cocopa Law") will be put into practice in rebel


FOURTH. - On that occasion, we zapatistas also reiterated our

right to express solidarity with the just struggles of the people of

Mexico and of the world. This was in response to those who

demanded that we limit ourselves to the indigenous issue in

Mexico. We expressed our support, at the world level, for

Venezuelan sovereignty, for the people of Iraq and for all those

struggles in resistance against the power of money. We

expressed our support in Mexico for those primarily indigenous

brothers and sisters who are resisting throughout the country.

FIFTH. - Over these last few months, the indigenous zapatista

peoples and rebels organized in the EZLN have prepared a series

of changes, which have to do with their internal functioning and

their relationship with national and international civil society, and

they are ready to make them public.

SIXTH. - In order to announce and explain these changes, 30

zapatista Autonomous Municipalities have asked the CCRI-CG of

the EZLN to have Subcomandante Insurgente Marcos carry out, in

addition to his work as spokesperson of the EZLN, the duties of

spokesperson for the Autonomous Municipalities, although just

temporarily. In accordance with this, today and in the coming

days, both documents will be made public, signed by

Subcomandante Insurgente Marcos in the name of the CCRI-CG

of the EZLN and of the Rebel Zapatista Autonomous


SEVENTH. - To those brothers and sisters, in Mexico and

throughout the world, who have had relationships regarding

projects or correspondence with the rebel zapatista Autonomous

Municipalities, and to those, in Mexico and throughout the world,

who have addressed the EZLN to request our word and/or

participation in different international initiatives against the

globalization of power, we are asking for your patience and

understanding. Until such time as these changes are announced

and have become operative, we shall not be able to give them the

attention they deserve.

That is all...for now.

Comandancia General of the

Zapatista Army of National Liberation.
