To the National and International Press:
First. - The Zapatista Army of National Liberation will be publicly announcing the detailed agenda of the trip it will be making to Mexico City for the purpose of engaging in dialogue with the Congress of the Union.
Second. - To this end, the EZLN is calling a press conference for February 22, 2001, in the indigenous community of La Realidad, municipality of San Pedro de Michoacán, at 10:00 AM.
Third. - Media persons do not require any special credentials in order to gain access to the site of the press conference. Some ID from the media for which they work will be sufficient.
Fourth. - This news event is only for the media.
Fifth. - Once again, we are clarifying that police officers disguised as journalists will not be allowed entrance, nor, by decision of the community, those persons from the television station which destroys indigenous schools with their helicopter (even though now they are holding "concerts for peace").
