In the Global Day of Solidarity and Support to the ejidatarios of San Sebastian Bachajón in their fight against dispossession, the Adherents to the Sexta Barcelona will hold an exhibition and video screenings in the local offices of the General Confederation of Labour (as known in Spanish, ‘Confederación General del Trabajo-CGT’). These events will report on the expropriation of lands and natural resources that the bad Mexican Government plan to implement through the imposition of mega-projects which will bring dispossession and death for the indigenous peoples. The community, located in the northern part of the jungle in Chiapas, where the blue waters come together in the waterfalls, is known for its beauty and unique colour and is attractive and generates tourist interest. This area is part of a comprehensive mega-tourism plan, including projects such as luxury hotels, an airport and golf courses. The intention is to continue destroying Mother Earth and all those who live in harmony with her, the last caregivers of the land that remain, the indigenous peoples, all to further grow the coffers of great capital. In addition there is the San Cristóbal – Palenque highway construction project, which if carried out, would affect several communities in the course of the project, and without regard for the fact that these lands are the life, the home and the sustenance for the communities that live there. And let us not forget the compas held prisoner for defending the land which now has cost them their liberty.
