Letter from Roberto Paciencia Cruz on International Prisoners’ Day

This September 24, as part of International Prisoners Day, Roberto Paciencia Cruz, unjustly imprisoned in Penitentiary No. 5, San Cristobal de Las Casas, Chiapas, adherent to the Sixth Declaration of the Lacandon Jungle of the EZLN, shares his word. In an open letter to public opinion, the state media, national and international alternative media, the Sixth, the brothers and sisters of Believing Peoples, to the Diocese of San Cristobal de Las Casas, independent organizations, the National Indigenous Congress and the EZLN, in the name of all those unjustly imprisoned, Roberto reveals the pain, preoccupations and injustice that they are suffering by being separated from their families. He claims that “those who are most punished by these injustices” are the prisoners’ families. He points out the lack of consideration by the authorities for them: “the governors do not care that the family of a prisoner is crying, or go to sleep hungry or that our children walk barefoot for lack of support from their parents.”

Roberto ends his letter inviting “all state, national and international independent organizations to join this cause in demand for our freedom.”

It should be remembered that despite giving ample evidence of his innocence, more than three years of his detention, Roberto Paciencia Cruz has still not been sentenced.
