The Abejas commemorate the Acteal massacre on the 22nd of each month. This past February 22, the Abejas published a press release in which they shared their analysis of the current situation in their municipality, in light of the recent release of several prisoners accused of the massacre. They also remarked on conflicts taking place in other parts of the state.
