San Cristobal de las Casas, March 17, 2015

Ejidatarios of San Sebastián Bachajón, adherents to the Sixth Declaration of the Lacandon Jungle, inform us that today, March 17, political party supporters from the community of Suquil Ulub carried out a roadblock at the turning to the waterfalls of Agua Azul, the compañeros adherents denied having any part in this.

They denounced that in recent days they have been attacked by the party supporters. Today in the morning, two compañeros ejidatarios who were carrying out their guard duties were beaten.

They hold Alejandro Moreno Gomez, Samuel Diaz Guzman and the three levels of government responsible for the attacks and for what may happen.

San Sebastian Bachajón continues to demand the release of their prisoners and continues in resistance in defence of its ancestral territory.

The compañeros asked people to be attentive to the situation in the Ejido San Sebastián Bachajón.
