AGAINST NEOLIBERALISM, IN SUPPORT OF THE PERUVIAN PEOPLE AND THE REVOLUTIONARY TUPAC AMARU MOVEMENT

At 18:00 on December 23, 1996, more than 200 individuals among the companions of the antagonist movement in Rome protested for two hours outside the Peruvian embassy in Rome in order to reiterate their support for the fight of the Peruvian people, for the liberation of political prisioners, for a guarantee of the physical integrity of the commando group which intervened in the Japanese embassy in Lima, and against the neoliberal economics which, in Per=F9, has resulted only in hunger and misery for her people. The following chants were raised: NO TO THE BARBARITY OF NEOLIBERALISM RESPECT FOR THE HUMAN RIGHTS OF POLITICAL PRISONERS ONWARD TO VICTORY COMMANDANT HUERTA A delegation of the protestors met with some delegates of the embassy, among whom was present Marco Carreon, presented as the Minister of the embassy. Substantially disturbed by our presence, the delegates of the embassy declared that their government is working for a peaceful solution, but reiterating the considerable firmness of president Alberto Fujimori. For our part we confirm the requests already declared, underscoring our constant presence, attention and mobilization concerning the occurrences. At approximately 7:40 in the afternoon, while the protestors were peacefully dispersing, certain elements of our "forces of order," demonstrating their contrarity to the success of the protest, and their "solidarity" with their homologues, stopped two isolated companions, identifying them. Roma, 23-12-96

-Esteemed companions, I want to thank you in the name of the national direction of MRTA, of the companions of the comando "Edgar Sanchez" and of the companions imprisoned in various jails in Peru. Since December 16 the prisoners initiated, as you all know, a general hunger strike in protest of the Peruvian government in order to demand answers and action against the inhumane jailing regime. This strike coincided with the seizing of the Japanese embassy on behalf of the commando "Edgar Sanchez", whose principal objective was the liberation of all our companions who are injustly detained for striving for a better society. We reemphasize our thanks for the show of solidarity demonstrated by the pressure that you all are also exercising in this moment upon which depends a negociated solution for the exchange of political prisoners with the Peruvian government. Many thanks again, and always toward victory. We will succeed!
