THE PERSECUTION OF STUDENTS IS ALREADY GOVERNMENT POLICY: MARCOS

*Restrain the fascist violence of the right, says "the Sup"

February 2, 2000
To the national and international press:

Ladies and gentlemen:
     Here I send you two communiques on two subjects two: the attack on 
Prepa 3 and the Escuela Normal de El Mexe, Hidalgo. In both of the attacks, 
the "new" police specialized in students were present: the preventative 
federal police. Pardon if the name appears as "Wilfredo" but should be 
"Wilfrido"(yes, I speak of Mr. Robledo, head of the PFP). The case is as 
that of la Mar; we consulted several newspapers and in some they put 
"Wilfrido" and in others "Wilfredo". In short, if it is "Wilfrido" or 
"Wilfredo", that only his mother knows for certain (that is if he has one).
     On the other hand, we are moved by the image of Zedillo on his bike, so 
much so that we forgot that to him we are only "one more incident in 
history". We were already about to exchange our horses for bicycles when a 
doubt was raised: is the "little hat" there to give the impression that he 
has a brain?
     Vale. Salud and don't be globalphobes, as the teacher Efrain Huerta 
already said: "Outside of the metro everything is Cuautitlan" (Is that how 
it was?)

>From the incidental mountains of the Mexican Southeast.

Insurgent Subcomandante Marcos.
Mexico, February of 2000.

PS: FOR DIODORO. That which "does not have any importance of engaging in a 
dialogue with the EZLN" (Zedillo "dixit"), is that the postscript of "One 
more step"? Or the postscript that "Wilfrido" will deliver personally? (or 
was it "Wilfredo"?)

PS: THAT EXPLAINS ITSELF: "Globalphobes of the World, Suicide!" (or rather, 
"Unite!").

PS: FOR THE SPANISH STATE. Do not be deceived: not all Mexicans are like 
Zedillo, that is, pathetic (although Aznar asks nothing of him).

PS: THAT ALSO MAKES HIS CONTRIBUTION TO THE RENOVATION OF THE LANGUAGE. Join 
the Club of Zedillophobes! We are already almost 100 million strong! (Next: 
the not-at-all exclusive Clubs of PRIphobes, Labastidaphobes, De La 
Fuentephobes, and the very exclusive one of Phobiaphobes(?!)

        COMMUNIQUE OF THE COMITE CLANDESTINO REVOLUCIONARIO                  
       INDIGENA-COMANDANCIA GENERAL OF THE EZLN.
                              Mexico.
February of 2000.

To the people of Mexico:
To the people and governments of the world:
Brothers and sisters:

     In the past days, in which it has been shown that the persecution of 
young students is already a policy of the government of Mr. Ernesto Zedillo 
Ponce de Leon, 64 students of the Normal Rural School, Luis Villareal, of El 
Mexe, were arrested with an excess of violence, in the Francisco I. Madero 
municipality, state of Hidalgo.
     The demands of the rural normalist students are rational: that their 
school should not disappear and that their graduates who qualify should 
receive teaching posts.
     Without trying even the slightest approach, the government of the state 
of Hidalgo and the federal government attacked the normalists, beat them, 
kept them missing and soon presented defendants of "robbery". The 
indescribable "Preventative Federal Police", which specializes in 
persecuting, beating, and arresting young students, participated in the 
action to compensate for their ineptitude in the battle against organized 
crime.
     The men, women, children, and elders of the Ejercito Zapatista de 
Liberacion Nacional condemn this attack, we support the normalists of El 
Mexe, Hidalgo, and call upon the strikers in particular and Mexicans in 
general to demand freedom for the imprisoned normalists and the fufillment 
of their just demands.

                      Democracy! Liberty! Justice!

On behalf of the Comite Clandestino Revolucionario Indigena-Comandancia 
General of the Ejercito Zapatista de Liberacion Nacional.
