Fourth Declaration of the Lacandona Jungle

EZLN

Issued on January 1st, 1996, the Fourth Declaration of the Lacandona Jungle declared “the flower of the word will not die.” The government launched a large-scale military operation to capture the EZLN leadership in February 1995, and failed. With the EZLN evading capture, they re-grouped and announced the formation of a new political front – The Zapatista Front of National Liberation, again re-iterating their desire to see a peaceful political outcome to the conflict.
