REGULATIONS FOR THE CIVIL CAMP IN HUITEPEC

Companions, brothers and sisters from different national and international organizations, and defenders of the environment and Mother Nature.

The Good Government Council, Central Heart of the Zapatistas Before the World from the High Zones of Chiapas, Mexico. Speak their word and present the REGULATIONS OF THE CIVIL CAMP FOR PEACE THAT IS IN THE COMMUNITY OF HUITEPEC second municipal section of San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico.

The indigenous Zapatista peoples together with the autonomous authorities bear the duty and obligation to protect, conserve and defend our Mother Earth and all that exists within her, such as the water, rivers, springs, forests, trees, animals, valleys and mountains.

Also to defend and fight for our Mother Earth and all living things and natural resources is to defend our own life before the destruction and death tax of the neoliberal capitalist system. Because for us the land and all its natural resources are fountains of life and not a business, as the bad governments and entrepreneurs make it.

For this reason the Good Government Council of the High Zone present the following rules and regulations for the proper functioning of the civil observation camp in the named place: “ÁREA NATURAL PROTEGIDA Y RESERVA ECOLÓGICA COMUNITARIA ZAPATISTA “EL HUITEPEC.”

REQUISITES

First – Bring your notebooks, pens, recorder, video and still cameras, etc. to document your experiences.

Second – Participants at the camp will be responsible for the costs of their stay such as: transport, food and lodging.

Third – The consumption of alcoholic beverages or drugs during your stay is prohibited. Failure to comply with this rule will be cause for expulsion from the site.

Fourth – All the decisions made will be administered in conjunction with the orientation and approval of the responsible community commission.

Fifth – Do not respond to any kind of provocation that could endanger the community and the campers.

Sixth – Observers are not to make any type of declarations nor political manifestations to the press during their stay.

Seventh – Do not leave the site without authorization from the responsible community commission, for example: to make purchases, health reasons, familial communication, or to explore the ecological reserve.

Eighth – Always maintain a clean campsite, as in the kitchen, dining area, dormitory, latrine and other places.

Ninth – It is prohibited to either mistreat or cut any trees, any plants, or kill animals in and outside of the ecological reserve.

Tenth – At the end of your stay in the camp, you will elaborate in a written report upon your activities, about your experience and the situation you will have seen firsthand, which will be submitted to the JBG of the Zona Altos with a copy for Frayba.

Any noncompliance with these regulations will be cause for expulsion from the civil observation brigades and will be reported to your parent organization.
