Bachajon-sigue-300x225Compañeros and compañeras, receive a combative greeting from the children, women, men and elders of the people of San Sebastián Bachajón. On September 24th we remembered our fallen compañero Juan Vázquez Guzmán, 5 months after he was cowardly murdered by the bad government on the night of April 24th, 2013 when he was resting at home, the murderers shooting him with a firearm. The memory of compañero Juan Vázquez Guzmán is our strength as an organization to keep fighting and defending our territory from plunder by the bad government which does not cease wanting to destroy our organization.

We inform you that our organization of the Sixth Declaration of the Lacandon Jungle has made an agreement to begin working a new gravel bank in the territory of San Sebastián Bachajón to meet the needs of the ejidatarios, the name this bank will carry is Nah Chawuk. Our idea comes from seeing so much repression from the bad government and the corruption and abuse from the ejidal commissioner Alejandro Moreno Gómez, together with the former ejidal commissioner Francisco Guzmán Jiménez, who destroyed the ejido’s gravel bank through uncontrolled exploitation and did not make themselves accountable to the ejidatarios for using the resource, they just put it in their purse and that of the politicians. These people who truly behave like organized criminals only seek their own personal gain and the people are an obstacle to them.

The new gravel bank Chawuk Nah will be for the benefit of all the people, not like Alejandro Moreno Gómez and the other corrupt commissioners do, who make money for their purse, they just exploit and profit from the mother earth while the people and the ejidatarios are discriminated against and completely marginalized by these bad authorities who do not  seek the collective benefit, but only benefit their people from the political parties and people from the government who make their purses richer by making Mother Earth into a business. So as an organization of ejidatarios we determined to begin work on the Chawuk Nah gravel bank to meet the needs of ejidatarios and for the collective benefit of the people.

We hold the federal, state and municipal governments and also the ejidal government of Alejandro Moreno Gómez responsible for any aggression, threats and repression which they try to do to impede our work as an organization and as ejidatarios on the Chawuk Nah gravel bank.

We are now looking at how these corrupt authorities are buying the communications media  of Cuarto Poder to publish lies and tarnish our organization, with information published on September 25, from an alleged journalist, by name Juan Sanchez, where it says that it is affecting the ecological reserve in the ejido and that it will cause confrontation between 7 thousand ejidatarios, but this is a lie because the ejidal map says that the hilly area is designated for a gravel bank, but Alejandro Moreno Gómez does not have the ejidal documents and only does what he is told to do by the bad government and Francisco Guzman Jimenez (aka the goyito); this is how pure falsehoods arise in order to suppress and destroy our organization, which is the only one which is struggling to defend the dignity of its people, because they have already sold themselves. In the ejido there were originally about 2 thousand ejidatarios, but the government has inflated the census of ejidatarios in the National Agrarian Registry to 4 thousand to better impose their frauds on the election of ejidal authorities. Our organization is peaceful and does not provoke confrontations, our organization defends the territory and the mother land from the capitalist projects of the bad government, this bad government and the ejidal authorities who obey them are the provocateurs, they generate violence in the ejido and are the murderers of social activists like Juan Vázquez Guzmán.

These bandits are the same ones who keep up the dispossession of our territory and who have illegally changed the coordinates of the decree of 1980 for the natural protected area of the waterfalls of Agua Azul in order to dispossess the ejido, with the police violating the law and human rights. The bad government does not like our organization to work independently without asking it for scraps and to live our autonomy without asking it for permission, it only wants to see us bent over and obedient like slaves.

We demand that the three levels of government respect our organization and our autonomy, we hold them responsible for any aggression, threats and harassment against our work and the compañeros and compañeras of the organization.

We demand the immediate release of our compañeros ANTONIO ESTRADA ESTRADA, unjustly imprisoned in Playas de Catazajá, Chiapas, and MIGUEL DEMEZA JIMENEZ, in El Amate in Cintalapa de Figueroa. We deplore the decision of the First Collegiate Circuit Court in Tuxtla Gutierrez not to release the compañero and social activist ALBERTO PATISHTÁN GOMEZ, but we will not rest until we achieve his freedom and that of our political prisoner compañeros.

Never again a Mexico without us

From the northern zone of Chiapas, receive a hug from the women and men of San Sebastian Bachajón.

Attentively

Land and Freedom!

Hasta la victoria siempre!

Freedom for Political Prisoners!

Freedom for Alberto Patishtan Gomez!

Juan Vázquez Guzmán Lives, the Bachajón Struggle continues!
