To the people of Mexico:
To the people of the world:
Brothers and Sisters: The attack that our brothers, the people of Oaxaca suffered and suffer cannot be ignored by those who fight for freedom, justice and democracy in all corners of the planet. This is why, the EZLN (Zapatistas) calls on all honest people, in Mexico and the world, to initiate, starting now, continual actions of solidarity and support to the Oaxacan people, with the following demands:
For the living reappearance of the disappeared, for the freedom of the detained, for the exit of Ulises Ruiz and the federal forces from Oaxaca, for the punishment of those guilty of torture, rape and murder.
We call to those in this international campaign to tell, in all forms and in all places possible, what has occurred and what is occurring in Oaxaca, everyone in their way, time and place. We call for these actions to come together in a worldwide mobilization for Oaxaca on December 22, 2006. The people of Oaxaca are not alone. We have to say so and demonstrate it, to them and to everyone. Democracy! Freedom! Justice!
By the Indigenous Revolutionary Clandestine Committee - General Command of the Zapatista Army of National Liberation. Mexico. Insurgent Subcommander Marcos.
