Compañeros and compañeras, receive a combative greeting from all the humble children, women and men of the ejido San Sebastián Bachajón; we hereby express our full support in solidarity with the compañeros members of Las Abejas of Acteal so as to support and raise our voice, we say to them that we will not take even one step back, our organization will continue in front struggling and supporting the compañeros in the situation of risk they are going through due to actions of the bad government; our word is stronger than a wall and we will join forces in order to defend life, the people and Mother Earth, we know that we are not alone in this struggle, because there are other people who are embracing and struggling to transform this world into something better and together united we will build a path of peace, freedom and justice.

Have faith, compañeros and compañeras.

We want you to listen to our words that your struggle is our struggle, that our organization is to support one another, this is why we express our contempt and anger at the narco government for contracting paramilitaries to assassinate and disappear people; we hold the government responsible for the threats and attacks against our compañeros members of the organization Las Abejas of Acteal, made in the ambush, armed aggression and physical injuries against three members, when on December 29, 2015 at approximately 7pm a group of three hooded individuals two of them dressed in black and one in a military-style shirt, shot at our compañeros with firearms in a vehicle near the Tsibal’um bridge about a kilometre and a half from the municipal headquarters of Pantelhó; this happened when they were returning from collecting sacks of coffee in the San Joaquin community in the same municipality; this ambush took place in the same region where six months ago Manuel López Pérez, a member of Las Abejas of Acteal, was ambushed and killed by three shots from a firearm.

We also demand the immediate release of our imprisoned compañeros Esteban Gómez Jiménez, prisoner in Cintalapa de Figueroa, Chiapas (amate #14), Santiago Moreno Pérez and Emilio Jiménez Gómez, prisoners in Playas de Catazajá, Chiapas (cereso #17) who were imprisoned for having the commitment to fight and defend the mother earth, just as we also demand the freedom of other political prisoners of Mexico and the world.

From the northern zone of the state of Chiapas the women and men of San Sebastián send militant greetings to all the compañeros and compañeras, communities and peoples of Mexico and the world who are in resistance.

Never again a Mexico without us

Long live the peoples who struggle for their autonomy and freedom!
