13010799_601633180000915_2430123146005846135_nWe hereby inform you that Grupo Higa, staff of Governor Eruviel and his corrupt ally, Angel Valdez Ramírez (representative of the communal property of the indigenous community of San Francisco Xochicuautla), have illegally entered with machinery of Grupo Higa, and are now besieging our community with riot police which they have placed on the main ways of access to the community.

The machines are beginning to work ILLEGALLY in the two main ends of the Otomí Forest, for which a protection order (amparo) was recently won.
We hold Ángel Valdez Ramírez and Eruviel responsible for any act of repression that is carried out, and also for the harassment they are committing against our indigenous community.

We beg you to remain alert as they seek to continue with the dispossession of the lands for the construction of the private highway from Toluca to Naucalpan. We will keep you informed through this media.
