Civil Society gives Recognition of Innocence to Alberto Patishtán  

We raise our voices

patish_ai_libertad-4-de-4We raise our voices today in profound outrage at the decision of the court to keep an innocent man in prison. Today we are all Alberto Patishtán.

Faced with the cowardice and insensitivity of the Court, we all say YES to the recognition of innocence of the Tzotzil Professor, a recognition founded on truth and justice.

We think that in our country of Mexico, understanding, listening and dialogue as paths to the future are being closed with violence, imposition, plunder, repression and imprisonment.

What happened to the teachers in Mexico City is an example of the arrogance of those who think they can do anything, even keep part of the country’s indigenous heart in prison.

The teacher’s family, Gabriela, Héctor and Génesis, the people of El Bosque, the Tzotzil people, and all the believing people need him back, to return to live among them, to continue teaching and living together.

To all those who struggle for freedom and justice from below and who have shown their support for gaining the freedom of Alberto Patishtán, we call on you all to also support the recognition of innocence which the powerful do not have the courage to acknowledge.

The Judicial Power of the Federation has closed the road to justice. It is in the hands of the power of the Federal Executive or the Congress of Union to free the teacher, or does justice have to come from international institutions?

“I cannot ask for pardon for something I did not do”

“My freedom is an act of justice”

Freedom for Alberto Patishtán!
