      A - I N F O S  N E W S  S E R V I C E

To national and international public opinion,

  Terrorism, sedition, rioting, criminal association? How can one, seeing 
that they accuse the striking students of all these things, not become 
outraged? In the FZLN, we reject this legaloid farce and we condemn the 
flagrant violation of the human rights of the arrested students, as well as 
the repressive escalation that the authorities are preparing.

  As for the thugs hired by the rectorship, we ask how much extra they are 
paid for on-the-job risks? And as for the intervention new federal riot 
police, as if we didn't have one with the local ones, we say nothing either? 
Where is the conscience in this country? Is it possibly that the histeric 
screams of the right, widely defended by the large television monopolies, we 
perhaps already view as rational arguments? Can it be that the words of Jose 
Emilio Pacheco will come true: "Are we all today that which we hated 20 
years ago?" In the FZLN, we say no, it is not normal or rational to 
animalistically repress the students by way of the military police. It is a 
step towards fascism.

  One who defends free, public education is not a terrorist. The 
responsibilty for what happened belongs to he who does not fufill the 
accords that he signed with a stamp which were carried out by peaceful 
negotiation, launches ultimatums and prepares unilateral exits, uses hired 
thugs, lies to the public opinion, and deploys soldiers against the 

Immediate freedom for all of the UNAM politcal prisoners! Fufill the accords 
signed on December 10th!
