Today on this day we express our solidarity with the compañeros from san francisco xochicuautla in the situation of risk they are taking and facing these days due to acts of the bad government, and we point directly to the government as responsible for the repression which they have been doing to the people of san francisco xochicuautla; we are already fed up that they do whatever they want with us, the government always wants to get away with it, to use our natural resources for projects for super-highways to make themselves rich, they order the repression of the peoples who defend the mother earth; the government is nothing more than a figure which comes to destroy the natural assets and get the benefit from them, but we will not allow this because the land belongs to those who work and care for it, not to those who destroy it; so let us join forces to end this injustice committed by the same narco government, which has a habit of sending forces to attack and repress the peoples so they will no longer defend their land, but they are wrong because we are many who want to join forces and put an end to the narco-government.
So we want to tell the compañeros from san francisco xochicuautla that they are not alone, because their struggle is our struggle and we lift up our hands to support them, we will continue in the front and in resistance, to defend ourselves and each other from the acts of the bad government, we join their struggle and raise our voice in solidarity so that in this way we can construct a better world where there is peace and justice, not super-highways that benefit only a few or the bad government itself.
So we express all our solidarity and support to the people of san francisco xochicuautla in their struggle, we want to tell you that our organization is with you, your struggle is ours and we will remain on alert for any act by the narco-government.
We also demand the immediate release of our imprisoned compañeros who have spent years in prison without having committed any crimes, but the government takes it as a crime to demand that the territory be respected, to have the commitment to struggle and defend the mother earth which is being plundered by the government for use for business purposes, they make up crimes to imprison people, they send their minions to repress and intimidate people so they will no longer continue fighting and defending the mother earth, we demand the release of our prisoners Esteban Gómez Jiménez imprisoned in Cintalapa de Figueroa, Chiapas (amate # 14), Santiago Moreno Perez and Emilio Gómez Jiménez prisoners in Playas de Catazajá, Chiapas (CERSS # 17) and well as the freedom of other political prisoners in Mexico and the world.
From the northern zone of the state of Chiapas the women and men of San Sebastian send militant greetings to all the compañeros, communities and peoples of Mexico and the world who are resisting.
Never again a Mexico without us
