Movimiento Revolucionario Tupac Amaru (MRTA) Communique #16

On April 22, 1997, at 3:00 p.m., military and police units stormed the embassy, thereby murdering all the members of our commando and one other person, according to reports so far. The National Directorate of the Tupac Amaru Revolutionary Movement (MRTA) would like to report the following to the international community:

1. A new crime has been committed against the best sons and daughters of the people, a crime carried out by the terrorist regime of Alberto Fujimori, with the compliance of the governments of Japan and North America.

2. During the one-sided battle, the members of Edgar Sanchez Commando displayed the morale of Tupac Amaristas, the decision for victory or death, to stand for the liberation of our people and against neo-liberalism, which has only brought our people sorrow and oppression.

3. With the murder of Comandante Nestor Cerpa and the members of the Edgar Sanchez Commando, the genocidal Fujimori regime seeks to convince our people and the international community, once again, that the Tupac Amaru Revolutionary Movement has reached its end.

4. We, Tupac Amaristas, lower our flags in honor of our murdered brothers and sisters, strengthened in our resolve to continue the fight for a peaceful society with social justice.

5. We say to our people and to our militants all across the country, the members of the Edgar Sanchez Commando did not die, they have reached the level of heroes, they will be with us during all of our mobilizations and actions.

The workers' commander from the people of Tupac Amaru, in all of his human qualities, was a slap in the face of the genocidal generals, and they could not endure this.



The People Of Tupac Amaru Will Continue To Fight Against The Neo-Liberal Model And Against State Terrorism! The People Will Not Surrender! Neither Surrender Nor Defeat ... The Struggle Continues!
