I. Pronouncements

The General Strike Council declares that the most recent attempt by the 
government and university authorities to destroy our struggle through the 
violent eviction and imprisonment of around one thousand companeros, at the 
hands of the paramilitary PFP, has failed, the CGH lives, the strike 
continues. Monday the 14th at 10am, the General Strike Council will begin a 
march, from the Alvaro Obregon monument, to enter University City and 
re-take the Assemblies in all of the Colleges. We explicitly declare the 
peaceful character of our demonstration, contingents from each school will 
take the necessary security measures to shut out any type of provocation.

While even one of our companeros remains imprisoned and while the solution 
to our petitionary sheet is not being discussed at the dialogue table, in 
respect of the accords signed by the authorities on December 10th, there can 
be no classes at UNAM. We trust in the dignity of the students opposed to 
the strike. We know that they will not return to classes as if nothing has 
happened -as the repressor De la Fuente intends- at the same time that their 
companeros find themselves in prison for the "crime" of firmly defending 
their just demands and when no resolution is in sight. We call upon you all 
to join in the Assemblies, this coming Monday.

We demand the immediate, unconditional freedom of absolutely all of our 
political prisoner companeros, who are being held as hostages by the 
terrorists Zedillo, Labastida, Diodoro Carrasco and Juan Ramon de la Fuente, 
who are attempting to crush the student movement. We will not permit them to 
keep even one of them.

The General Strike Council reiterates that its petitionary sheet of 6 
points, has added one more, the freedom of all of our political prisoners. 
We point out that after nearly ten months of striking, not one of our seven 
demands has been met, even though all are elementary and very easy to 
resolve. We demand the immediate solution to the 7 points of our petitionary 

The General Strike Council demands that the employee of Zedillo, Juan Ramon 
de la Fuente, immediately renounce his position as rector. He has no 
business at UNAM, he who came with the sole purpose of deceiving the 
university community, taking advantage of its desperation in a contemptible 
manner, to pass the order for the repression of the student movement and the 
violation of the university's autonomy. He has no business at UNAM, he who 
called for the confrontation between university students. He has no business 
at UNAM, the little deputy of Diodoro Carrasco, the employee of Zedillo and 
Labastida, he must go.

We pronounce:

d) We call upon all university students to not attend class, if only to 
validate that the repressive ends that the authorities gave to a problem is 
one that concerns us all, in the same way we call upon all workers to seek 
out forms of expressing your indignation and displeasure.

e) We fight for a solution by means of dialogue, as was established December 
10th with the authorities, for which we vehemently reject all unilateral 
ends imposed by the university authorities.

f) We demand the disappearance of the Preventative Federal Police and the 
Corps of riot police, whose purpose has always been to repress social 

g) To the bankers we say, stop with your alms-begging, take your dirty hands 
off UNAM and return to the people of Mexico that which was stolen by 

h) We call upon intellectuals and to all people in general to unite with the 
CGH in its fight.


We call upon the university community to attend a march from the Alvaro 
Obregon monument to University City, Monday, February 14th at 10 in the 
morning. With the objective of retaking the assemblies in all of the schools 
and colleges of University City.

We call upon social organizations to join in this mobilization as endorsers.

We call for a national strike of the entire education sector focusing on the 

1. The defense of free, public education.

2. Immediate and unconditional freedom for all social fighter political 
prisoners and the disappearance of the Preventative Federal Police.

3. A solution to the CGH petitionary sheet.

We call for a national meeting Saturday, February 19th for all of the 
institutions of higher learning to discuss the following points:

The possibility an outburst of a national strike.

The formation of a council for the general struggle.

The reactivation of the national front in defense of free education.


Meeting at Reclusorio Norte, Saturday, February 12th at 9 in the morning.

A national journey to collect signatures in defense of the political 
prisoner companeros.
