Sixth Commission of the EZLN -- MEXICO -- September 13, 2006.
To the adherents of the Sixth and the Other Campaign -- To the People of Mexico
Companeros y companeras:
During the past months of July and August, the Sixth Commission of the EZLN
has carried out a series of consultations and contacts with diverse
organizations, groups, collectives, families, and individuals, all adherents
of the Sixth Declaration of the Lacandon Jungle and the Other Campaign. With
the results from these consultations, we sent an evaluation and a proposal
to our compa=F1er@s indigenous commanders of the EZLN.
Having received the authorization of the CCRI-CG of the EZLN, the Sixth
Commission will begin to make public in the next few days a series of
analyses, considerations, and proposals. In these texts, the Sixth
Commission of the EZLN will provide a review of the antecedents that gave
rise to the Sixth Declaration of the Lacandon Jungle, a summary of the Other
Campaign at one year since its inception, an analysis of the electoral fraud
that culminated in the imposition of PAN candidate Felipe Calderon as
president of Mexico, our critical position on the mobilization against this
roguishness, as well as a proposal to all of the adherents of the Other
Campaign on the following steps for this struggle we have taken on together.

For now we want to communicate a first resolution made based on this
consultation and our evaluation.

First: With the demand for liberty and justice for our compa=F1er@s political
prisoners of Atenco, the Sixth Commission of the EZLN will reinforce its
solidarity presence in the capital of the country while simultaneously
restarting the journey that had been suspended, visiting the 11 states in
the north of the Mexican Republic where we have not yet been in order to
listen to the "compas" from these lands.

Second: In order to do this, a group of [men and women] commanders from the
CCRI-CG of the EZLN/ Sixth Commission will relocate to Mexico City in order
to relieve Delegate Zero so that he can finish the suspended journey. While
Delegate Zero travels to the north of the country promoting the struggle for
the liberation of our "compas" and listening to the word of the Other in
these places, the commanders will stay in and around Mexico City, attentive
to the situation of the prisoners from Atenco and participating, when
possible, in the activities carried out in demand of their liberation.

Third: The journey to be reinitiated will attend primarily to meetings with
adherents and indigenous peoples in the states and regions, although we do
not discard participation in public acts that are agreed upon by adherents
and the Sixth Commission of the EZLN. News of the aggression against Atenco
and the situation of the prisoners will be diffused everywhere.

Fourth: Roughly speaking, the journey will restart October 9th of this year
with the following itinerary:

Sinaloa (Escuinapa, Mazatl=E1n, Culiac=E1n and Los Mochis); then by maritim=
transport to Baja California Sur (La Paz and possibly Los Cabos); then by
highway to Baja California Norte (Ensenada, Tijuana, Mexicali, meeting with
the Other Campaign on the Other Side and at some point visiting the compas
of the National Indigenous Congress-Northeast: the Kumiai, Cucapa, Triquis
and Mixteco Indigenous peoples); from there to Sonora (Santa Ana,
Hermosillo, Guaymas-Empalme, Ciudad Obregon and along the way meeting up
with the Papago, Seri, Mayo, Yaqui and Pima indigenous peoples who also
belong to the National Indigenous Congress-Northeast); afterwards, from Los
Mochis to the Sierra Tarahumara in Chihuahua by train, so that we can meet
with the Raramuri members of the CNI; next, continue by train to Chihuahua,
then by highway to Ciudad Juarez and Parral; then to the Region Lagunera in
Coahuila and Durango; afterwards we'll head to various points in the state
of Zacatecas; from there to San Luis Potosi, the capital and the highlands;
next to Monterrey and Linares in Nuevo Leon, afterwards to Saltillo,
Monclova and Pasta de Conchos in Coahuila, followed by Matamoros, Ciudad
Victoria and the southwest of Tamaulipas; from there to the Huasteca
Potosina where we'll finish our national tour and return to Mexico City
(tentatively in the last days of the month of November).

Fifth: The itinerary is based on the proposals for activities which were
submitted to us by the adherents in each state or region before the shameful
acts in San Salvador Atenco May 3rd and 4th of this year. Details on the
dates and routes will be released when possible, as we are still looking at
the routes and the highway conditions; these will be communicated to the
adherents in the states of the North of Mexico and the Other on the Other

Sixth: This decision of the CCRI-CG of the EZLN and the Sixth Commission has
already been considered and approved by the compa=F1er@s of the People's Front
in Defense of the Land, who were attacked, along with other compas of the
Other, the 3rd and 4th of May 2006, by federal and state of Mexico
government forces. The compa=F1er@s from Atenco have expressed that they are
in agreement.
