Today Friday we have come together in a roadblock at these high points of our territory in the ejido San Sebastián Bachajón, and in 15 days’ time it will be a year since the cruelty committed by the Mexican state, killing 3 people, leaving 3 in a state of coma due to the repression they suffered and with another 43 young normal school students disappeared from Ayotzinapa.
These figures are in addition to thousands of others assassinated and disappeared throughout the country, as well as political prisoners incarcerated for their commitment to the defence of our territory and life as indigenous and non-indigenous peoples.
We hold the bad government responsible for the murders of our compañeros Juan Vázquez Guzmán on 24th April 2013 and Juan Carlos Gómez Silvano on 21st March 2014; at the same time we demand the freedom of our others unjustly imprisoned, Esteban Gómez Jiménez, prisoner in Cintalapa De Figueroa, Chiapas (Amate #14), Santiago Moreno Pérez and Emilio Jiménez Gómez, prisoners in Playas De Catazaja, Chiapas (Cereso #17), who were imprisoned for having the commitment to defend our mother earth, we also call for the freedom of other prisoners of Mexico and the world.
We denounce those responsible for the release of the two intellectual authors of the murder of the teacher and compañero Galeano by the self-appointed “judge” Victor Manuel Zepeda López, of the criminal court in Comitán de Domínguez, Chiapas, on 12th August this year, knowing that their accomplices in the CIOAC-Histórica know that they are guilty of organizing the crime.
Justice for the compañeros for defending freedom, peace, life and the mother earth.
We will continue to join the struggle, our struggle for the live appearance of the young people and for justice, so that together with other indigenous peoples, with other organizations of the country we will overcome the capitalist monster for a better world, where there will be peace, democracy, justice and a harmonious relationship with nature and the entire cosmos.
Never again a Mexico without us
