The EZLN announces a communiqué

MVS News 20/11/2012

Within days of the end of the presidency of Felipe Calderón Hinojosa and Juan Sabines Guerrero, the Command of the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN) announced that it will break the silence that it has maintained since 2009.

“Soon the word of the Clandestine Revolutionary Indigenous Committee-General Command of the Zapatista Army of National Liberation Sixth Commission and the International Commission of the EZLN,” says the notice on the website of Enlace Zapatista, the Zapatista source of information.

The comandancia of the EZLN has not issued a communiqué since late 2008 and early 2009, when they met with anti-systemic organizations in in San Cristobal de las Casas for the Festival of Dignified Rage.

During the presidential campaign, their spokesperson, Subcomandante Marcos, maintained a correspondence with the philosopher Luis Villoro where he criticized the campaigns, the candidature and the candidates.

On November 17, the EZLN celebrated 29 years since it was founded in the canyons of the Lacandon Jungle, when three Indians and three Ladinos set up the first guerrilla camp. The date was remembered by adherents to the movement with cultural festivals.


Note: The last communiqué issued by the EZLN was actually in April 2011
