EZLN denounces the release of the murderers of Zapatista teacher Galeano
“It is once again made clear that truth and justice will never, ever come from above. From above the only thing we can expect is pretence, deceit, impunity, and cynicism.
The criminal above will always receive absolution and reward, because the one who judges him is the same one who pays him. They are the same, criminals and judges. They are poisonous heads of the same Hydra.”
The Zapatista Army for National Liberation (EZLN) denounced in a communique signed by Subcomandante Insurgente Moisés and SCI Galeano (previously Marcos) on August 18th that the two people accused of the murder of the Zapatista teacher Galeano were freed. Galeano, José Luis Solís López, was murdered on May 2, 2014 en La Realidad, municipality of Las Margaritas, Chiapas.
In the communique, they informed that on August 12th, the self-proclaimed judge declared innocent the two intellectual authors of the murder, “despite that fact that they and their accomplices in the CIOAC-Histórica know that they are guilty of organizing the crime. They aren’t the only ones responsible, but they are guilty”. They further stated: “fat and happy, to their homes in the village of La Realidad. They were supposedly being held prisoner for the murder of our teacher and compañero. We already know that they have been declared innocent of this crime by the same people who financed and supported them: the federal and Chiapas state governments.”
