CHAPTER SEVEN
Let Us Advance!* Information Organ of the Patriotic Regional Junta of the Sinú, San Jorge, and Cauca

The People Commands

The Patriotic Regional Junta of the Sinú, San Jorge, and Cauca dictated on December 17, 1968, its first legislative decree. This act has an enormous historical importance because it is the first law which embodies and expresses the will of the Colombian people. It has great significance because it demonstrates the authentically popular content of our struggle and makes crystal clear its expression of a people's war and not an armed foco.

This memorable decree formalizes the authority which this Junta has been exercising since its foundation; it confirms the embryonic character of the government of and for the people, which will rule the destiny of the future People's Republic of Colombia. In signing this draft the members of the Junta, conscious of our important historical mission, are in agreement concerning the content of our first declaration on the goals for which we organized ourselves: to satisfy the requirement of the revolutionary struggle in the countryside, that is, to seize the land, parcel it out, defend it, liquidate the enemies, unify the people in the course of a popular war, replace the reactionary government, transforming the Junta into an organ of popular power, into a local government of the people.

With great pride we publish this document so that the entire oppressed and exploited people can celebrate with us this first
