To the community of the National School of Anthropology and History: Mexico City.
Brothers and sisters of the ENAH:
Greetings from all the men, women, children and old ones of the EZLN. A few days ago we received a letter from the community of the National School of Anthropology and History (students, academics and workers).
In this letter you invited our delegation to stay at, and use as our headquarters, the National School of Anthropology and History (ENAH) facilities during our stay in Mexico City.
We then wrote you in order to tell you that we accepted this invitation with much pleasure, and that our delegation of 23 Comandantes and 1 Subcomandante would make their headquarters in Mexico City at the ENAH beginning March 11, 2001.
It will be a great honor for us that this honorable university will be providing shelter for us and for the weighty baggage of hope with which we will be arriving. We are grateful to your community for this contribution to the peace process and to the constitutional recognition of indigenous rights and culture.
We are advising you, then, our brothers and sisters of the ENAH, that we will be arriving at your school on March 11, 2001.
Vale. Salud, and may history now make note of those who made it.
>From the mountains of the Mexican Southeast.
Subcomandante Insurgente Marcos.
February of 2001.
