PVEM militants intimidate and block passage to members of LaSexta in Teopisca

Organized families from the the San Francisco community in the municipality of Teopisca, Chiapas, denounced that a group of militant people from the Green Party of Mexico blocked their way out of Teopisca, "they were a few metres from our reclaimed land, trying to intimidate us and preventing compañeros of the Sixth from passing through. Allies (of the PVEM) with another shock group, mainly from El Escalon, municipality of San Cristobal de las Casas and other communities, invade our recovered lands which we have occupied. We recovered the land because we are original people, we have been paeons and indentured servants for 200 years."

We are a group of organised campesinos and campesinas from the community of San Francisco, municipality of Teopisca, adherents to the Sixth Declaration of the Lacandon Jungle of the EZLN, in defence of land and territory

who are all members of the green ecologist party, for blocking our exit road from Teopisca; they were a few metres from our reclaimed land, trying to intimidate us and preventing compañeros of the Sixth from passing through. Allies (of the PVEM) with another shock group, mainly from El Escalon, municipality of San Cristobal de las Casas and other communities, invade our recovered lands which we have occupied. We recovered the land because we are original people, we have been paeons and indentured servants for 200 years.

We demand that the three levels of bad government respect out recuperated land, our rights, and our self-determination. We also hold responsible all of the people already mentioned, the shock group from the municipality of San Cristóbal de las Casas, Pedro Hernández Espinoza and the three levels of government, for all of the aggressions which may be suffered by the adherents of the Sixth in our recuperated land.

LAND AND FREEDOM

HASTA LA VICTORIA SIEMPRE

Sincerely,

Organized group from San Francisco, Municipality of Teopisca, Chiapas, Mexico. Adherents to the sixth declaration of the Lacandon Jungle of the EZLN
