ZAPATISTA CALL TO ACTION
Protest Presidente Fox's visit to California
Thursday/ Jueves 10 am infront of Mexican Consulate
870 Market St. (Powell BART)
San Francisco,
415-642-4079

As we're all aware, the Congreso Mexicano refuses to meet with the Comandancia Zapatista at this pivotal point in Mexican and world history. They also refuse to implement the San Andres Peace accords on Indigenous rights, signed by the Mexican government four years ago. As it stands, the campaign of disinformation launched by TV Azteca and
Televisa against the EZLN and their key demands, in conjunction with Fox's "doublespeak" concerning the San Andres Accords, makes it vital that we
offer the Zapatistas our support, especially relating to the Comandancia (Zapatista Comanders) addressing el Congreso Mexicano. As such, an opportunity to express our support and solidarity with the Comandancia is upon us. Vicente Fox
will be in the Silicon Valley this week on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Given the extreme short notice, a small group met today to talk about the possibility of doing an action,We have decided that this Thursday, March 22, is best (in terms of press, time, effectiveness).

QUE CORRA LA VOZ, please pass the word on this action to family,
friends, co-workers.
