Compañeras and compañeros, brothers and sisters:
Good day, good afternoon, good evening.
Today is October 16, 2017.
In the name of the Zapatista compañera bases of support, we welcome the compañeros of the Indigenous Governing Council, the compañera spokeswoman María de Jesús Patricio Martínez, the National Indigenous Congress and all those present.
Compañeros and compañeras, brothers and sisters, today we are gathered here in this caracol to learn from and hear the words of the spokeswoman of the Indigenous Governing Council.
Compañeros and compañeras, brothers and sisters, this day is very important for us as originary peoples of the countryside and the city, to unite our forces to in support of this new plan for national struggle and to continue constructing our autonomy throughout the national territory. This is the only way we can defeat the bad capitalist system and form a new system of government from below and to the left with resistance and rebellion.
