Unjustly imprisoned, Roberto Paciencia Cruz, adherent to the Sixth Declaration of the Lacandona Jungle of the EZLN, incarcerated in the CERESO No. 5 in San Cristóbal de Las Casas, Chiapas. The unjust humiliation and psychological torture we all suffer in the different penitentiaries of the state and country is what we are daily confronting. For example, Saturday August 27, I was denied my visitors, who wanted to see me and spend some time with me. The warden Abelardo Méndez Gonzéles and the guard Isidro Manuel Vázquez Hernádez completely denied my visitors. These employees along with the director Victor Manuel Vázquez Hernández did not take into account the effort made by my visitors. As poor indigenous people this humiliates us. Because of this I am making this public denunciation, demanding the government Manuel Velazco Coello to take action against the officials who have mishandled their professional positions. At the same time, I demand that the state government to give me my freedom as soon as possible, and also the freedom of my compañero Alejandro Díaz Sántiz.
Finally, I invite all the global organizations to continue reclaiming the liberty of all of the political and unjustly imprisoned prisoners of the country.
Justice and liberty!
Roberto Paciencia Cruz
