Compañeros and compañeras, we inform you that the bad government is using a strategy of supposed tourist businesses to create an environment of persecution against indigenous communities, but especially of our organization, through false accusations of assault on the highway and organized crime, in order to undermine our struggle by presenting us as thieves or criminals, for this reason they are increasingly sending police to our region of San Sebastian, which is near the Agua Azul turning on the road from Ocosingo to Palenque, because they can find no way to stop us defending our territory and as they see that more and more of the brother and sister ejidatarios are opening their eyes to the bad policy of the government and therefore leaving increasingly more isolated the ejidal commissioner Alejandro Moreno Gomez and the vigilance councillor Samuel Diaz Guzman, who have no one to embrace them but their patrons the bad governments.

This trick of the bad government to accuse us of false crimes of assault and organized crime is the same as in 2009 and 2011, when they imprisoned the political prisoner compañeros for defending the land, but we are not afraid of the government’s threats, we demand that the three levels of bad government respect the people and organized communities, because we will not rest in the defence of the land and our rights as a people.

We demand the withdrawal of the public forces from our lands which have been dispossessed since February 2011 and of the National Commission for Protected Natural Areas.


We demand freedom for our political prisoners Juan Antonio Gómez Silvano, Mario Aguilar Silvano and Roberto Gómez Hernández and for the unjustly imprisoned compañeros Santiago Moreno Pérez, Emilio Jiménez Gómez and Esteban Gómez Jiménez.

From the northern zone of the state of Chiapas, the women and men of San Sebastián Bachajón send our combative greetings.

Never again a Mexico without us


Land and Freedom! Zapata Vive!

Hasta la victoria siempre!

Freedom for political prisoners!

Juan Vázquez Guzmán Lives, the Bachajón struggle continues!

Juan Carlos Gómez Silvano Lives, the Bachajón struggle continues!

No to the dispossession of indigenous territories!

Immediate presentation of the disappeared compañeros from Ayotzinapa!
