Communique from the Clandestine Revolutionary Indigenous Committee --
General Command of the Zapatista Army of National Liberation.


June 19, 2005

To the People of Mexico:
To the Peoples of the World:

Brothers and Sisters:

As of today, the Zapatista Army of National Liberation has declared,
throughout all rebel territory, a


Based on this, we are informing you:

First - That at this time the closure is being carried out of the
Caracoles and the Good Government Offices which are located in the
zapatista communities of Oventik, La Realidad, Morelia and Roberto
Barrios, as well as all the headquarters of the authorities of the
different Rebel Zapatista Autonomous Municipalities.

Second - That also being carried out is the evacuation of the members of
the different Good Government Juntas and the autonomous authorities, in
order to place them in shelter. Now, and for an indefinite time period,
they will be carrying out their work in a clandestine and nomadic
manner. Both the projects as well as the autonomous government will
continue functioning, although under different circumstances than they
have been up until now.

Third - That basic community health services will continue functioning
in the different Caracoles. Civilians will be in charge of these
services, and the CCRI-CG of the EZLN is distancing them from any of our
future actions, and we are demanding that they be treated as civilians
and with respect for their life, liberty and goods by government forces.

Fourth - That there has been a call-up of all members of our EZLN who
have been engaged in social work in the zapatista communities and those
of our regular troops who have been in their barracks. In a similar
fashion, all broadcasts by Radio Insurgente, �The Voice of Those Without
Voice�, in FM and in short wave, have been suspended for an indefinite
period of time.

Fifth - That, simultaneous with the publication of this communiqué,
national and international civil societies who are working in peace
camps and in community projects are being urged to leave rebel
territory. Or, if they decide freely of their own volition, they remain
on their own and at their own risk, gathered in the caracoles. In the
case of minors, their departure is obligatory.

Sixth - That the EZLN announces the closing of the Zapatista Information
Centre (CIZ), not without first thanking the civil societies who have
participated in it, from the time of its creation until today. The
CCRI-CG of the EZLN formally releases these persons from any
responsibility for the future actions of the EZLN.

Seventh - That the EZLN releases from responsibility for any of our
future actions all persons and civil, political, cultural, citizens and
non-governmental organizations, solidarity committees and support groups
who have been close to us since 1994. We thank all of those who have,
sincerely and honestly, throughout these almost 12 years, supported the
civil and peaceful struggle of the zapatista indigenous for the
constitutional recognition of indigenous rights and culture.
