Date Tue, 28 Jun 2005 08:45:49 +0300

The Zapatistas are going to be delivering their Sixth Declaration from the
Lacandon Jungle soon (they haven't released one since July of 1998...seven
years ago...and note that 7 is a very important number in the mayan cosmology).
Communiqué from the Clandestine Revolutionary Indigenous Committee -
General Command of the Zapatista Army of National Liberation.
Mexico. June 26, 2005. To the People of Mexico: To the Peoples of the World:
First - The CCRI-CG of the EZLN is informing you that it has finished
consulting with tens of thousands of support bases. Between June 20 and
June 26, meetings and assemblies were held in more than one thousand
indigenous communities in the southeastern Mexican state of Chiapas.

Second - Participating in these assemblies were only 100% indigenous and
100% Mexican men and women, adults, EZLN support bases, who listened to
reports from the zapatista leadership. There was also an analysis of the
national situation and of the proposal for a new step in the struggle.

Third - After analyzing and discussing the advantages and disadvantages,
the dangers and the risks, everyone expressed themselves, through
individual, free votes, concerning the proposal.

Fourth - The results were that more than 98% approved the new step, and
less than 2% decided not to support the proposal.

Fifth - In this manner, with the approval and backing of the wide majority
of its members, the EZLN shall undertake a new political initiative that
is national and international in nature.

Sixth - In order to report on what was analyzed and discussed in the
internal consulta - in addition to explaining and calling for joining in
with the new initiative which has been approved - the CCRI-CG of the EZLN
will, over the next few days, make public a series of texts which are part
of the "Sixth Declaration of the Selva Lacandona."
