Urgent: adherents to La Sexta from San Sebastián Bachajon denounce military presence in their area.




19th October 2016

800 public security police and 400 paramilitaries are presently near to Zapatista territory and the ejido Bachajón

Compañeros and compañeras, organizations, receive our combative greeting.

We ask for your help to share this urgent information.

This morning, at about 9:00 am, the presence of public safety officers at the crossroads to the access road to the Agua Azul waterfalls was observed; it was reported that there were 5 buses of public safety officers, 7 large trucks and 8 small trucks which were accompanied by 25 small trucks of paramilitaries; a helicopter from the state police is flying over Zapatista territory, there are approximately 800 officers of public security and 400 paramilitaries, which makes 1200 people in total who are going to participate in the eviction of a group of ejidatarios headed by CC. Daniel Moreno Gómez, Manuel Jiménez Moreno, Juan Álvaro Moreno and  Carmen Aguilar, among others, who are in possession of the toll booth; this action is not only the eviction of those groups, but also represents a major threat to the adherents to the sixth and the compañeros support bases of the EZLN, since they are situated in indigenous territories and Zapatista territories, which favours the dispossession of our land; it should be noted that this work is organized by the ejidal commissioner C. Manuel Guzmán Álvaro, because they have held roadblocks at different points on the 17th and 18th of this month to demand the intervention of the state authorities to attend to ejidal problems; the same people issued a communiqué on 15th October this year which demands that arrest warrants are executed and requests the intervention of state authorities to evict groups of ejidatarios and address the problems of the community of Agua Azul. We as adherents to La Sexta reject the police presence in our territory, because many of the indigenous compañeros are unaware of what the ejidal commissioner is doing, making it easy for the bad government to enter into indigenous territories.


Long live autonomy.

The police of the bad government out of indigenous territories.
