Bachajón reports new threat of dispossession
March 20, 2015
The compañeros of the ejido San Sebastian Bachajón, adherents to the Sixth Declaration of the Lacandon Jungle, report that the roadblock conducted by political party supporters at the turning to the waterfalls of Agua Azul, which started on 17th March, is continuing; now it is the people of Commissioner Alejandro Moreno Gómez (ejidal Commissioner) and Samuel Díaz Guzmán (vigilance councillor) who are in charge of this.
The ejidatarios informed us by telephone that the Commissioner is organizing his people to evict the compañeros from San José en Rebeldia and from the “San Sebastian” Regional Headquarters, land recuperated by the compañeros of San Sebastián Bachajón.
The compañeros will not give up the struggle for the defence of their land and territory and for the release of their prisoners.
We ask that you remain aware of the situation of the compañeros.
