Pilgrimage in El Bosque (@Radio Pozol)

On June 6, around 2,500 members of the Believing People of El Bosque went on a pilgrimage to demand attention to the problems experienced in the region such as violence, corruption, drug trafficking, lack of basic services such as access to health and potable water.

They asked the three levels of government “to put a stop to all the injustices that are on top of our communities, pueblos, and cities,” the “no repetition of events such as the murders of Chabajebal, San Pedro Nichtal-ucum, and Unio´on Progreso, municipalities of El Bosque, Chiapas. As well as massacres like Acteal, Ayotzinapa, Guerrero, Aguas Blancas, etc.”; “a stop to forced disappearances of men, women, and children; a stop to repression”; “a stop to to the imprisonments of human rights defenders and innocent people”; “the presentation with life of all the disappeared persons of the country”; “justice for the deaths of the children murdered by the IMSS from the community of Pimienta, municipality of Simojovel, Chiapas”; and the immediate liberation of all the political prisoners and unjustly imprisoned.

Participants of this march were members of the Believing People of the neighboring municipality of Simojovel, who maintain demanding justice for the death of Yadira González González and Emmanuel Francisco López, the babies who died in La Pimienta after the application of vaccines from the IMSS last May.
