Compañeras and compañeros,

We want to inform you that today at seven in the morning caciques entered our territory claiming to be owners of the recuperated land that rightfully belongs to us, accompanied by their White Guards in 30 disguised trucks. They entered violently, beginning to burn our stuff and throw gases.

We, as people organized in the Sixth Declaration of the Lacandon Jungle, in the space of struggle of Semilla Digna and member of the Indigenous National Congress (CNI), decided to recover these lands on the 20th of December, 2015; they rightfully belong to us, since they are the lands that we have worked for generations; those that claim to be the owners of the lands are Francisco Ruiz, Rodrigo Ruiz, and Octovin Albores.

For all these reasons, we ask you to be attentive to whatever aggression may be carried out against us, and we hold the three levels of the bad government responsible. Compañeros and compañeras, we will keep you informed of the situation.

San Isidro Los Laureles, Municipality of Venustiano Carranza
