5. The guests of honor—the relatives and compañeros of the students from Ayotzinapa who we all long for in their absence—have let us know that they will be participating. That means all of us will have the opportunity to listen to them.
6. Finally, we want to let you know that our delegates are ready to participate with an attentive and respectful ear. We will attend with our faces uncovered so that we cannot be identified. Or better yet, so that we can be identified as just one among many of our compañeros and compañeroas of the Sixth.
That’s everything.
