  2. – Finally, we advise you that our delegates are now ready to participate with an attentive and respectful ear. We are going with our faces uncovered so that you cannot identify us. Or, better still, so that you may identify us as one more among our compañeros, compañeras and compañeroas of the Sixth.

That’s all.
