north america / mexico | indigenous struggles | press release Wednesday June 22, 2005 18:39 by Marcos - EZLN
Communique from EZLN saying that they have put the structures in place which would allow the organisation to survice even if the government or its paramilitaries eliminate "some or all of its publicly known current leadership."
Communiqué from the Clandestine Revolutionary Indigenous Committee of the Zapatista Army of National Liberation
To the People of Mexico:
Brothers and Sisters:
First and Only - We are informing you that, since the middle of 2002, the EZLN has been engaged in a process of reorganizing its political-military structure. This internal reorganization has now been completed.
We have the necessary conditions in place to survive an attack or enemy action that would do away with our current leadership or which would attempt to annihilate us completely.
The chains of command and the succession of responsibilities have been clearly established, as well as those actions and measures to be taken in the event of being attacked by government forces and their paramilitaries.
The CCRI-CG of the EZLN is letting it be known that conditions are in place to continue leading the zapatista struggle even if it were to lose – be it through jail, through death or through forced disappearance – some or all of its publicly known current leadership.
That is all.
From the Mountains of the Mexican Southeast.
