The JBG detailed the following: “We Zapatistas know that in our state and our country there are sincere and honest people who understand the just cause of our Zapatista struggle who can help us.  Though we encounter many obstacles, we Zapatistas will continue forging ahead with our Zapatista struggle and construct our autonomy.  The organizations that can assist are invited to present themselves in the office of this [JBG] in the Highlands of Chiapas.”
