Declaration of the Frente Campesino Ezequiel Zamora

AGAINST THE KILLERS, IMPERIALISM AND FOR AGRARIAN REVOLUTION
WE PEASANTS ARE MARCHING ON CARACAS

Caracas-Braulio Alverez, leader of the Frente Campesino
Ezequiel Zamora, was wounded with two bullets but is in
stable condition, according to his sister luisa Alvarez,
broadcast on Radio Nacional of Venezuela on Thursday at
11:30 pm

Alvarez was about to carry out a meeting with a peasant
group in Copa Redonda, in the town of Paez, Yuracuy State,
when he was intercepted and two bullets hit him. His sister
believes that the attackers were waiting for him.

The Frente Campesino Ezequiel Zamora groups together
peasants from all of Venezuela and is organizing them around
the achievements of the Land Law and other legal instruments
which the workers of the countryside have won.

However, since 2001 more than a 100 peasants have been
murdered, which has been denounced by the Frente and
Alvarez, victims of killers apparently backed by the large
landlords that have been hurt by the law.

The reply of the Frente Campesino Ezequiel Zamora is to
continue to build and broaden the PEASANT MARCH FOR THE
AGRARIAN REVOLUTION. against the murderers and in defense of
national sovereignty which is taking place the 11th and 12th
of July in Caracas under the slogan: "ZAMORA TAKES CARACAS."
