Mexican Army Harasses EZLN's Sixth Commission (Communiqué from the CCRI-CG)

April 30th, 2007
To the People of Mexico:
To the People of the World:
To the Other Campaign:

The EZLN makes the following public denouncement:

Elements of the Federal Army harassed the delegates of the Sixth Commission of the EZLN that are carrying out the work of the Other Campaign in the Northeast region of our country.

On April 29th at around 7:30p.m., the convoy of adherents of the Other Campaign that is accompanying Comandantas Miriam and Eucaria and Comandante Zebedeo were detained at a military checkpoint stationed on the highway between Montemorelos and Linares, Nuevo Leon.

The soldiers aggressively searched and interrogated the civilians that accompanied the Zapatista delegation, took pictures of them and of their vehicles, and searched the vehicles exhaustively.

Since the beginning of our direct participation in the Other Campaign, various federal and state police agencies, as well as army intelligence and the CISEN, have dedicated themselves to vigilance over the Sixth Commission, taking photos, collecting information, and in some cases, harassing the people that accompany us or who we listen to on our journey.

These spies and undercover agents have confirmed that the EZLN is not promoting armed struggle but rather people’s civil participation. They know that, in contrast to the government and political parties, we are not telling lies, but rather listening and making echo of the injustices that our people suffer in all of the national territory. They also know that we do not transport weapons or drugs.

In the last part of the first phase, this harassment was even greater, and now, on this occasion, the aggression was directly against the Zapatista delegation.

With the movement of the Other Campaign, the EZLN has followed a civil and pacifist path of struggle. It is public and provable that the EZLN has nothing to do with organized crime, neither within nor outside of governmental or political party spheres. This is a ridiculous pretext with no substantiation, used as an excuse to assault our compañer@s.

Fifth. If the federal government has decided to close this civil route also and opts now for the reinitiating of the war in the Mexican Southeast, they should say so clearly. In whatever case, we are ready. For one thing or the other.

We make a call to all honest and noble people to come out against this harassment.

Democracy! Liberty! Justice!
