After spending two days in Tijuana, Baja California, listening to various representatives of disenfranchised peoples, Subcomandante Marcos laid out the first details of an expanded Other Campaign.
Simon Fitzgerald reports:
"In the MultiKulti Theatre in downtown Tijuana, Marcos clarified that his trip around the country was to make first contact with adherents to the Other Campaign, "to see who is getting close to us just for the photo-op and who is really working in their communities." Afterwords, larger delegations of indigenous comandantes - with at least one man and one woman from the Clandestine Revolutionary Indigenous Committee - would spread out across the country. Each of these delegations would move to a single region of Mexico, meeting with adherents for private conversations "with more time and without the pressure" of the current tour, which has traveled across four states in under two weeks since the reinitiation on October 8.
"...This process will also be a long one that may see many different electoral campaigns come and go. Illustrating this point, Marcos also offered some clues as to how the Other Campaign would be internationalized. "If we would have said ten years ago that we would travel into every small corner of Mexico, people would have said 'You ´re crazy!' Maybe I will sound crazy now, but I am going to say here, we will travel to every part of the United States and Canada to speak with the Mexican compañeros there."
