Some late notes for the consulta


17 March 1999

To the Civil Society of Mexico:
To the State Coordinating Committees of the Consulta:

Brothers and sisters:

We greet you and hope everything is going well in the tours of the Zapatistas delegates. According to the information arriving to us, our companeros and companeras are glad and excited to see the effort, sacrifice and dedication of the people working in the Coordinating Committees and in the organizing of public events. Thanks for all this. Here I send you some quick notes about various matters.

1.- We wish to inform you that in the City of Mexico there is a group of delegates of the EZLN that are willing to accept invitations to events not forseen by the Delegation Coordinating Committees, and to meet with the national and international press. To contact them, please contact Dona Rosario Ibarra de Piedra.

2.- March 19, there will be an event with the Zapatista delegates in the University City. We want to invite all organizations of students, teachers and university workers to participate in this mobilization, especially the student organizations in the UNAM who are fighting against the registration fees [cuotas]. We have thought of this event as something in which all university-related people can participate, in other words, everybody working and/or studying in the institutions of higher learning. Thus, we are also inviting the students in the Polytechnical institutes, the normal schools, the Iberoamerican University, the Universidad Americana, the NPR, the pedagogical institutes, and everybody in universities and private institutes of higher learning.

This March 19,1999 everybody to the esplanade of Rectory in the University Campus.

P.S. SMOULDERING IN DEFEAT.- To everyone who loves and adores soccer! With regard to the final score, we can say that doesn't reflect what really happened in the soccer field, since on the green the "zapatodos" demonstrated vivacious and frolicsome play for the delight of young and old. Anyway, we didn't lose, we just needed more time to win (Napoleon dixit). Furthermore, it's clear that our guys were affected by the altitude, the climate, the smog, the field, the Asian crisis, Popocatepetl volcano, the Clinton-Lewinski affair, and those uniforms, each big enough to fit two of us. Ah! And let's not forget that the "zapatudos" arrived a bit tired because they arrived to D.F. after dribbling around 70,000 Federales.
