On the Worldwide Day of Solidarity and Support for the ejidatarios of San Sebastian Bachajón in their struggle against dispossession, the Adherents to the Sixth from Barcelona will be offering an exhibition and some videos in premises provided to us by the Local Federation of the CGT from Barcelona. We will provide information about the expropriation of lands and natural resources that the bad Mexican Government intends to carry out and the imposition of its megaprojects of plunder and death for the originary peoples.

 

In the territory located in the northern zone of the jungle of Chiapas are situated the waterfalls of Agua Azul, which provide a lot of attraction and tourist interest due their beauty and unusual colour. This territory forms part of a comprehensive mega-tourism plan, which includes projects such as luxury hotels, an airport and golf courses. For this, they intend to continue to destroy mother earth and all those who live in harmony with it, the last remaining guardians of the land, the originary peoples, in order to continue to inflate the coffers of great capital. In addition, there is the construction project for the San Cristóbal – Palenque highway, which, if carried out, would affect several communities in the planned area of the project. They do not care that these lands are the life, home and sustenance for the communities who live there. Without forgetting the compas prisoners who for the defence of their lands have lost their freedom …

Once again they attack us, threaten us and beat us. They try to destroy our resistance, our life.

Once again we resist and continue to build where they destroy.

Once again, as they have done for more than 500 years, they believe they are the owners of the lands and the peoples.

Once again we reclaim and defend the common wealth that is owned by no one but the peoples.

14695551_1800877260127828_8900945864639347493_nThis time it was the compa Domingo Pérez Álvaro who was first threatened first, then beaten and wounded.

We must let them know that when they beat Domingo they beat all of us, and that we will continue moving forwards for Domingo and for his family and for all the compas of the community of San Sebastián Bachajón, who will remain standing for as long as one of them still lives.

 

ALL SOLIDARITY WITH DOMINGO!

Convocation for the Week of Worldwide Action in Solidarity with the Ejido San Sebastián Bachajón From Sunday, 4th December to Saturday, 10th December, 2016

To our sisters and brothers of the ejido San Sebastián Bachajón

To our compañer@s adherents to the Sixth Declaration of the Lacandón Jungle throughout the world

To our Zapatista compañer@s

To the National Indigenous Congress (CNI)

To the people of Mexico and the world 

 

Compañeras and compañeros,

We send you all warm greetings and embraces of solidarity from Canada, England, Mexico, Peru, the United States and Uruguay.

We, Hermann Bellinghausen, Hugo Blanco, Circulo de las Primeras Naciones de l’UQAM, Gustavo Esteva, John Gibler, Dorset Chiapas Solidarity Group, Malu Huacúja del Toro, Sylvia Marcos, Movement for Justice in el Barrio, Jean Robert and Raúl Zibechi, wish to share with you a humble proposal and hope that you will wish to join with us from your own places and in your own ways to carry out the Week of Worldwide Action in solidarity with the Ejido San Sebastián Bachajón from Sunday, 4th December to Saturday, 10th December, Human Rights Day 2016.

This initiative is supported by the adherents to the Sixth from San Sebastián Bachajón.

 

Compañeras and Compañeros,

The indigenous Tseltal communities of the ejido San Sebastián Bachajón, like so many originary peoples throughout the world, are under attack from the forces of capitalism and transnational corporations who will not rest until they have destroyed the entire planet with their megaprojects of death.

In San Sebastián Bachajón, the greed of governments and businesses covets the ownership of the beautiful waterfalls of Agua Azul, in order to construct an elite tourist destination. The ejidatarios of San Sebastián Bachajón are obstacles to their plans and their profit, as they inherited the lands from their ancestors and care for them as a great treasure of humanity. For this reason, they have been recipients of threats, aggressions, arbitrary detentions, forced disappearances, imprisonment, torture, and attacks from state forces and paramilitary groups.

On 17th October 2016, a brutal attack took place against the tireless community organiser and human rights defender from La Sexta Bachajón, the indigenous Tseltal Domingo Pérez Alvaro. He was detained for three hours before being savagely beaten and threatened with death by the group of supporters of the official Ejidal Commissioner of San Sebastian Bachajón, Manuel Guzman Alvaro, who left him gravely injured and unable to speak.

It is time to raise our hands, words and voices in solidarity with the adherents to the Sixth Declaration from the ejido of San Sebastián Bachajón who are an inspiration to us all in their dignified struggle, and who are currently experiencing serious acts of violence and police and military occupation, along with eviction, deceit and plunder, in the continuing attempt to dispossess them of their ancestral lands and sacred places. These recent threats and acts of brutal aggression compel us to offer our solidarity.

**

As a direct result of the determination of the ejidatarios of San Sebastián Bachajón to defend their lands, their beloved community leader and spokesperson Juan Vázquez Guzmán was savagely assassinated with high velocity firearms on 24th April, 2013 and community organiser Juan Carlos Gómez Silvano was murdered with over 20 gunshots on 20th March 2014.

Domingo Pérez Álvaro is now being threatened with a similar fate.

We demand an end to the killings, attacks and threats of violence!

As part of the bad government’s policy three compañeros from San Sebastián Bachajón are now in prison. Over 150 people have been imprisoned since 2007. We demand freedom for the unjustly imprisoned Esteban Gómez Jiménez, Santiago Moreno Pérez and Emilio Jiménez Gómez!

 

Compañeras and Compañeros:

The bad governments and their allies in multinational business corporations wish to destroy the indigenous peoples and all those who struggle from below and to the left, because it is only the organized resistance of autonomous communities against their wars and the destruction of our natural resources that can save the Mother Earth for our children.

For this reason, we call on you all to join together to continue the dignified struggle of the ejidatarios of San Sebastián Bachajón, so that all ways and forms of life may have their place.

In honour of all the work in the defence of human rights undertaken by Domingo Pérez Álvaro, let us raise our voices on World Human Rights Day, 10th December 2016, in solidarity with our compañer@s from La Sexta Bachajón. We therefore call on all who strive to build another, better, world, one of freedom, justice, democracy and dignity, to join our forces together to organize activities –from your own area and according to your different methods of struggle- to carry out the Week of Worldwide Action in support of the Ejido San Sebastián Bachajón from Sunday, 4th December to Saturday, 10 December, 2016.

Let us help make a global echo of the following demands:

  • Respect for the fundamental human rights of the indigenous Tseltal peoples of San Sebastián Bachajón, and guarantees for their security and integrity
  • Respect and guarantees for their right to the full use and enjoyment of their territory and to self-determination and the construction of their autonomy
  • An end to the plunder and dispossession and the theft of commons,
  • An end to the permanent police presence and the militarisation of the area, and to the threats and violence which are being experienced
  • A full and fair investigation into the material and intellectual authors of the assassinations of Juan Vázquez Guzmán and Juan Carlos Gómez Silvano and the savage attack on Domingo Pérez Álvaro, and punishment of those responsible

We ask you also to remain alert and aware and responsive as to what may take place in the ejido San Sebastián Bachajón and to hold the three levels of government and their lackeys responsible for any acts of aggression

We ask you to please let us know as soon as possible if you are able to accept our proposal and if you will participate.

You can contact us by email at: solidaridadconssb@gmail.com

 

Resistance is Life! Dispossession is Death!

Land, Freedom and Justice for the Ejidatarios of San Sebastián Bachajón!

State police out of indigenous territory!

Stop the Aggressions against the Adherents to the Sexta!

Freedom and Justice for Esteban Gómez Jiménez imprisoned in Cintalapa de Figueroa, and for Santiago Moreno Pérez and Emilio Jiménez Gómez, prisoners in Playas de Catazaja!

Juan Vázquez Guzmán Lives! The Bachajón struggle continues!

Juan Carlos Gómez Silvano Lives! The Bachajón struggle continues!

Long Live the EZLN! Long live the CNI!

Denouncement from San Sebastián Bachajón, adherents to the Sixth Declaration, 17th November 2016

Denouncement from San Sebastián Bachajón, adherents to the Sixth Declaration, 17th November 2016.

Ejido San Sebastián Bachajón Denounces Collaboration of Member of the Political Party MORENA in the Dispossession of Their Territory

 

img_20161115_102934

 

Compañeros and Compañeras, receive our combative greetings. Here we want to make the word of our organization known regarding the latest actions of the officialist ejidal commissioner Manuel Guzmán Álvaro. Furthermore, we ask for your help in sharing this message widely.

Since being recognised as taking the position of official authority of San Sebastián Bachajón, Guzmán Álvaro has carried out acts of violence with his people, in order to solicit the intervention of the authorities of the three levels of government. Since then he has been able to bring in the public forces which are today guarding the Indigenous territory of the ejido.

 

img_20161115_103042

 

Without the consent and knowledge of the pueblo, he has been utilizing the agreement of 2011 signed by Juan Sabines Guerrero and the ex-commissioner Francisco Guzmán Jiménez. While they were signing the agreement, 117 adherents of the sixth were kidnapped and unjustly incarcerated. A wave of violence and repression was carried out by the bad governors, together with the ex-ejidal commissioner Francisco Guzmán Jiménez. This agreement was not made under orders of the general assembly, but was organized and documented by a few bad leaders in the service of the bad government, and in this way they are utilizing the current ejidal commissioner Manuel Guzmán Álvaro to ask for evictions, a police presence and benefits for themselves from the income of the waterfalls of Agua Azul

What the current ejidal commissioner is doing is deceiving the people, portraying his struggle as a dignified struggle in defence of territory, when he is acting as a servant of the bad government. The ideas they are using today are ideas of Juan Jiménez alias “JIGO” and are the same strategies that they utilized in 2011 in the repression of the compañerxs.

 

img_20161115_102954

 

Not only did he deceive the people at that time, but he is also doing the same today. Juan Jiménez participated with the ex-commissioner Pedro Álvaro Hernández who was also acting against the pueblo when he was the agent of Bachajón. This was together with the ex-ejidal commissioner Francisco Guzmán Jiménez, who also participated with the ex-ejidal commissioner Alejandro Moreno Gómez. Since that time he has been participating in harassment and repression, organizing paramilitary forces to dispossess the compañerxs, ejidatarios and adherents of the sixth.

Now once again they are deceiving the people, the Indigenous people who are not aware of what they are truly trying to do. Juan Jiménez is not only elaborating strategies to dispossess the lands of San Sebastián, but he is also a leader of the political party MORENA and the presidential candidate of Chilón, with the support of other political party members, as well as the advisor of the paramilitary group Paz y Justicia, who today is the sub-secretary of government of the Tzeltal and Chol jungle zone based in Yajalón, Chiapas, Lic. Alpuche. He too, has been carrying out repression and harassment against the compañerxs of the Tila ejido. With this sub-secretary, commissioner Manuel Guzmán Álvaro and his security council have maintained close coordination, as can be seen in the photographs that are published with this note.

 

img_20161115_103022

 

During the roadblocks that were carried out in October this year by the ejidal commissioner Manuel Guzmán Álvaro and his people, the money obtained in the roadblocks was put in to the hands of Juan Jiménez alias “JIGO” to finance his campaign to be municipal president of Chilón for the political party MORENA.

This explains how the current commissioner Manuel Guzmán Álvaro is linked to the dispossession of the lands of San Sebastián Bachajón. He is participating with the political party members so that they can easily hand over our natural resources in to the hands of the bad government.

 

img_20161115_103009

 

The commissioner has obtained the support of a group of civil organisations, such as a human rights centre, which also accompanies the people but in reality is not doing this, which censors the word of our organisation, but also accompanies the same servants of the bad government, and which is aware of the agreement of 2011 which was falsely elaborated, and still give their support as you can see in the following:  http://chiapasdenuncia.blogspo t.mx/2016/09/ejido-san-sabasti an-bachajon-exige.html

We share with you the following photos which show the ejidal commissioner participating with political party members; among them the advisor of the paramilitary group Paz y Justicia, today sub-secretary of government for the Tzeltal and Chol jungle zone centred in Yajalón, Chiapas, Lic. Alpuche.

Combative Greetings

 La Sexta in San Sebastian Bachajon Receive New Threats

At a press conference on October 27 last, ejidatarios from San Sebastián Bachajón, adherents to the Sixth Declaration of the Lacandon Jungle of the EZLN, denounced the threats that its authorities have recently been receiving, “including compañero Domingo Perez Alvaro, human rights promoter of La Sexta, ejido Bachajón, and other authorities.” They explained that there are threats of arrest or abduction by the ejidal commissariat C. Manuel Guzman Alvaro’s people, and were informed by third aprties that, “compañero Domingo Perez Alvaro is first on the list of threats and then the other authorities of La Sexta”.

The San Sebastian Bachajon ejidatarios blamed the ejidal commissariat Manuel Guzman Alvaro for these threats. They pointed out that while Guzman Alvaro, as a candidate, had announced that he would defend the village lands and would respect the organization of  La Sexta in Bachajón, “so far [he] has not fulfilled and respected his word, because his actions are the complete opposite.”

FROM EJIDO SAN SEBASTIÁN BACHAJÓN, ADHERENTS TO THE SIXTH DECLARATION OF THE LACANDON JUNGLE, CHIAPAS, MEXICO 11 OCTOBER 2016

To the General Command of the Clandestine Revolutionary Indigenous Committee of the Zapatista Army of National Liberation

To the Councils of Good Government

To the National Indigenous Congress

To all compañer@s in Mexico and the World, adherents to the Sixth Declaration of the Lacandon Jungle

To the mass and alternative media

To the Network against Repression and for Solidarity

To Movement for Justice in el Barrio, New York

To national and international human rights defenders

To the people of Mexico and the world.

Compañeros and compañeras, members of the communications media present at this press conference, receive militant greetings from the adherents to the Sixth Declaration of the ejido San Sebastian Bachajón, and our thanks for accepting our invitation to this press conference in which we want to let you know the word of our organization about the latest developments of dispossession and violence in our territory, occasioned by the bad government and the officialist ejidal Commissioner Manuel Guzmán Álvaro.

We share our outrage at the recent acts of the officialist ejidal Commissioner Manuel Guzmán Álvaro, elected at the General Assembly of ejidatarios on 18th April this year. Before the election he presented himself to our organization and we listened to him because we are pueblo and brothers and sisters and this is our custom and the way of working of our organization which is struggling and seeking for the unity of our people. This was how we heard the word of the then candidate for Commissioner, who at that time was speaking of wanting to struggle and to defend the land of the ejido; he said he was aware of how previous Comissioners had not respected the autonomy and rights of the people of San Sebastian Bachajón and said that he would defend the land and respect the organization of la Sexta. But so far he has not fulfilled and respected his word, because his actions are completely contrary to what he said.

On 23rd September 2016 the officialist ejidal Commissioner C. Manuel Guzmán Álvaro entered the area of ejidal endowment where the access to the waterfalls of Agua Azul is located with a group of landowners, to evict the group of ejidatarios who were in a confrontation with them, concerning questions about the election of the Commissioner, led by CC. Manuel Jiménez Moreno, Juan Álvaro Moreno, Daniel Moreno Gómez, Carmen Aguilar and others who were claiming the access to the Agua Azul Waterfalls, located at the site of the headquarters of our organization, which was burned down on 21st March 2015. Immediately after the arrival of the Commissioner Manuel Guzmán Álvaro, the State Preventive Police took over our headquarters.

On 30th September, 2016, the officialist ejidal Commissioner Manuel Guzmán Álvaro and his supervisory board issued a communiqué through the website “Chiapas
denuncia pública” (http://chiapasdenuncia.blogspot.mx/2016/09/ejido-san-sabastian-bachajon-exige.html) ) trying to pretend that their struggle is for the defence of the land and demanding that the government recognise them as an authority, but not explaining the background of their true intentions to hand over the land to the bad government.

On 18th October, 2016, the officialist commissioner organised roadblocks in different parts of the ejido to request the intervention of the bad government to supposedly resolve internal problems in the ejido, but actually designed to hand over our natural resources, to ratify the agreement made in 2011 and signed by Francisco Guzmán Jiménez alias Goyito with Juan Sabines Guerrero, all this for the future benefit of transnational corporations. On that day, people who are supporters of the Commissioner detained, beat and stole belongings from the compañero Domingo Pérez Álvaro.

On 20th October, 2016, the authorities of the ejido la sexta Bachajón again received threats, these were threats of arrest or kidnapping by the people who are supporters of the officialist ejidal Commissioner Manuel Guzmán Álvaro. Members of the group of the ejidal commissioner Manuel Guzmán Álvaro said they have a list of those threatened from la Sexta Bachajón. They verbally warned our compañero Domingo Pérez Álvaro that they would finish him off, as they did to the compañero Juan Vázquez Guzmán, executed at his home on the night of 24th April, 2013.

At the request and insistence of the ejidal Commissioner, the bad government gladly took the opportunity to send police troops to protect the area of Agua Azul, the police requested by the Commissioner changed places, 50% of them went to Xanil village, to the home of C. Carlos Jiménez Gómez, father of the two members of the state police: Carlos Jiménez Hernández y Rafael Jiménez Hernández, belonging to the state police, who are also involved in this harassment.

The bad government celebrates again the police presence in the area of Agua Azul, all with the continual manipulation and co-optation of the ejidal authorities who have been bought. Here is the word of the bad government that you can consult directly on their website: http://www.icosochiapas.gob.mx/2016/10/21/gobierno-del-estado-restablece-orden-en-agua-azul/.

This permanent presence of the bad government in our territory completely violates the rights of our people to autonomy and self-determination, which is why we repudiate the subservience of the Ejidal Commissioner and his Supervisory Board who continue to allow this policy of dispossession, obtaining the backing of civil human rights bodies and pretending that their movement is a struggle for the defence of territory when it is the opposite and also intends to hand over the land to the government, and commit violent acts against social activists.

We clarify as members of la Sexta Ejido Bachajón, that we deny all connection with all acts committed and organized by the officialist ejidal Commissioner Manuel Guzmán Álvaro towards civil society, because they have put trees onto the roads and have burned a patrol of the municipal police at the height of jolamaltzak, on the section of the road Ocosingo-Palenque, these acts were committed by the officialist ejidal Commissioner Manuel Guzmán Álvaro and his group, this was the manner in which they requested intervention from the state authorities; and we are making you aware that the sole responsibility for any detention and deprivation of liberty of the authorities and members of the sixth Declaration of the ejido Bachajón lies with the ejidal Commissioner Manuel Guzmán Álvaro.

We thank for their national and international solidarity all the compañeros and compañeras who remain alert as to what happens in San Sebastián Bachajón. We salute and express our solidarity to the Yaqui Tribe who are going through difficult times in their struggle and resistance, which is also ours.

From the northern state of Chiapas we send combative greetings from the women and men of San Sebastián Bachajón.

 

Never again a Mexico without us

Land and Freedom

Hasta la victoria siempre!

Juan Vázquez Guzmán Lives, the Struggle for Bachajón continues!

Following the attack on Domingo Pérez Álvaro, comrade and adherent from San Sebastíán de Bachajón.

 

bachajon_15

Today, 20th of October 2016, we read with anger and concern the third denunciation in three days by our comrades and adherents to the Sixth from the ejido of San Sebastián Bachajón.

For three days they have faced aggressions, disproportionate police, military and paramilitary presence, and threats of eviction, imprisonment and death.

Our comrades, the women and men of the Ejido of San Sebastián Bachajón have spent 11 years fighting for the defence of their territory, nature and the earth. They demand their right to enjoy and make use of their territory in the heart of the forest. The waterfalls of Agua Azul, which are in indigenous lands, are a treasure which is being kept for a choice few, as is the [hydroelectric] dam, about which there is financial speculation, which will benefit only the touristic elite. And which will “serve” equally few; those who can bear the moral and financial cost of staying in the luxury rooms of their hotels and playing on the golf course they want to build on the back of the blood, livelihoods, dispossession and displacement of those who are not disposed to bow their heads in the face of death and contempt for their life and history.

In these years of fighting and resistance, against dispossession and the eco-tourism project of the Palenque tourist trail, they have had to overcome the death of two comrades and now the imprisonment of another three members of the ejido, as well as continual repression, day after day.

We have in front of us the latest denunciations by the women and men, adherents of San Sebastián de Bachajón, about the bad governance of the ejidal commisioner Manuel Guzmán Álvaro, his direct collaboration in the provoking clashes and authorising the entry and installation of Preventative State Police and paramilitaries to halt the process of autonomy by the women and men, comrades of Bachajón. On the 17th of October, said commissioner led a group of thugs who brutally assaulted our comrade Domingo Pérez Álvaro, leaving him gravely injured.

Our comrade Domingo Pérez was violently set upon by said group on his return from visiting the political prisoners in Playas de Catazaja.

This new aggression forms part of the terror strategies that the aforementioned official commissioner has imposed in order to dispossess the people of these lands and hand them over to the economic interests of big business.

From a different corner of the dignified world, we wish to identify those responsible for all this violence – murders, the incarceration of political prisoners, police repression – and denounce all of these acts, making public the names of:

The official commisioner, MANUEL GUZMÁN ÁLVARO. The municipal president, FELIPE GUTIÉRREZ MIRANDA. The governor of the State of Chiapas, MANUEL VELASCO COELLO. And above all, the president of Mexico, ENRIQUE PEÑA NIETO, all of them puppets in the hands of corporate interests, and perpetrators of a politics of death and dispossession.

From this part of the world we wish to express our total solidarity with the autonomy that is being built in San Sebastián de Bachajón, and with the comrades and adherents, women and men, who keep these natural spaces far out of reach of the greedy hands of criminal corporate interest.

We hold them and all three levels of government responsible for the aforementioned and all further aggressions that may occur.

From here we will remain vigilant to what is happening to our comrades, men and women of Bachajón and with dignified rage we cry out to this bad, criminal government, NO MORE AGGRESSIONS IN BACHAJÓN!

Juan Vázquez Guzmán lives, the fight in Bachajón continues!

Juan Carlos Gómez Silvano lives, the fight in Bachajón continues!

No to the dispossession of indigenous territories!

State police out of indigenous territory!

Immediate freedom for our imprisoned comrades from San Sebastián Bachajón!

Worldwide Pronouncement in Solidarity with Domingo Pérez Alvaro and the community of San Sebastián Bachajón, adherents to the Sixth Declaration

We energetically denounce the fierce aggression against Domingo Pérez Alvaro, indigenous Tseltal, ejidatario and adherent to the Sixth Declaration of the Lacandon Jungle from the ejido San Sebastián Bachajón, which took place on Monday, October 17th, at approximately 4 pm, at the top of the crossroads of Alan Sajcun in the territory of the ejido.

According to a statement from the ejidatarios, the aggressors are people belonging to the group of supporters of the officialist Ejidal Commissioner, who are government supporters and enemies of the struggle carried out by the ejidatarios for their land and territory, which the bad capitalist government wants to take away from them in order to build a luxury tourist resort. This group of supporters of the officialist Ejidal Commissioner of San Sebastian Bachajón, Manuel Guzman Alvaro, detained compañero Domingo Pérez Alvaro and physically attacked him with heavy blows so that today he is still in a very delicate state of health.

The supporters of the Ejidal Commissioner accuse Domingo Pérez of taking part in collective works on the lands of the neighbouring community of Bolom Ajaw and of participating in La Sexta Bachajón. In fact, compañero Domingo Pérez Alvaro has participated since the founding of La Sexta Bachajón, he has walked in promoting human rights and participated in the National Indigenous Congress; he also took part in the 20th anniversary of the CNI. On the day of the attack, Domingo was returning from the prison of CERESO 17 in Playas de Catazaja, where he went to visit one of the political prisoners of Bachajón, Santiago Moreno Pérez, on behalf of the organization.

The brutal and serious attack on compañero Domingo Pérez Alvaro certainly took place because of his participation in the struggle of his people to defend their territory. As the ejidatarios say about the attackers: “We reject their actions of dispossession which only serve to confirm their agreements with the bad government to hand over ejido lands to them …. We condemn the actions of the Ejidal Commissioner Manuel Guzmán Álvaro who we hold responsible for the integrity of our colleague Domingo Pérez Alvaro and any attack on the compañeros and compañeras of La Sexta Bachajon.”

Compas of good heart all around the world, we hereby ask for your solidarity with and support for La Sexta Bachajón. Please denounce these acts and disseminate this information, because it is reported that the compañero is in a grave condition following this attack.

We ask you to remain alert as to the situation in the ejido San Sebastián Bachajón.

 

Land and Freedom!

¡Hasta la victoria siempre!

Juan Vázquez Guzmán lives, the Bachajón struggle continues!

Juan Carlos Gómez Silvano lives, the Bachajón struggle continues!

Compas of the ejido San Sebastián Bachajón, you are not alone!

RvsR Following the attack on a member of the Sixth from San Sebastián Bachajón

 

dsc02691

Yesterday, October 17th, our comrade Domingo Pérez Álvaro, a member of the Adherents to the Sixth from San Sebastián Bachajón, was stopped by a gang of thugs led by the official commissioner of San Sebastián Bachajón, Manuel Guzmán Álvaro. He was beaten up after having visited the political prisioners in Playas de Catazaja. Our comrade is seriously injured.

Since May of this year, our comrades, women and men of San Sebastián Bachajón, have denounced the bad administration of the official commissioner, how his administration has collaborated in the destabilization of the area, provoking clashes with the partisans and accusing the men and women who are adherents to the Sixth of holding road blocks and other actions in which they have never participated. The official commissioner has also allowed the Preventative State Police to estabish itself in the area, in spite of promises not to allow its presence in Bachajón. It is clearly a strategy that intends to slow down the process of autonomy being undertaken by our comrades; this is the real threat to those on ‘top’, since we know the area’s juicy economic potential for ecological tourism and big hotel businesses. The dispossession strategy is also evident.

Sadly, police repression, the incarceration of political prisoners and murders have accompanied the autonomous process of our comrades, women and men, of San Sebastián Bachajón. It pains us once more to hear the news of this attack on Domingo, our comrade Domingo. It fills us with indignation and anger towards those responsible: the official commissioner MANUEL GUZMÁN ÁLVARO, the municipal president of Chilón, the governor of the State of Chiapas MANUEL VELASCO COELLO, the president of Mexico ENRIQUE PEÑA NIETO, all of them puppets in the hands of corporate interests in the area, those interested in building a new Cancun in Agua Azul, with dispossession, repression and death.
Let us remain vigilant, spread the word, demonstrate our solidarity with the Tzeltal dignity being constructed in San Sebastián Bachajón.

STOP THE AGGRESSIONS IN BACHAJÓN!

JUSTICE FOR OUR COMRADE DOMINGO!

LONG LIVE THE AUTONOMIES!

LONG LIVE BACHAJÓN!

Against dispossession and repression: Solidarity!

San Sebastián Bachajón denounces the deeds of the officialist Ejido Commission

20150208_062718_mx_chiapas_bachajon_w1024_par_valk

Communiqué from Bachajón: “They are allowing the Police and Army into our territory!” 11th October 2016

Our organisation, the autonomous ejido San Sebastián Bachajón has been defending the Earth and our territory for many years. We have been struggling in defence of Nature since the 14th of March 2007. That’s 11 years of dignified struggle. A lot of compañeros have lost their lives defending Mother Earth and other people have also been unjustly imprisoned for doing the same. The bad government has incarcerated 130 of our compañeros simply for their uncompromising commitment to defending Mother Earth. At the moment 3 compañeros are unjustly held as prisoners in different penitentiary centres, where they are denied their freedom. For all of this, we demand that you respect our struggle, our organisation, our autonomous authorities and the spilled blood of our fallen compañeros.

FROM EJIDO SAN SEBASTIÁN BACHAJÓN, ADHERENTS TO THE SIXTH DECLARATION OF THE LACANDON JUNGLE, CHIAPAS, MEXICO 11 OCTOBER 2016

To all compañer@s in Mexico and the World, adherents of the Sixth Declaration of the Lacandon Jungle

To the mass media and alternative media

Jmololabex ants winiketik icha spatil a wotanik ta pisilik machatik nokol skoltabel te lum kinalik te yuun ta skuenta te nokol spojbel te chopol ajwalil.

Combative greetings to all compañeros and compañeras and your organisations and communities in resistance from the ejido San Sebastián Bachajón, adherents to the Sixth Declaration. We celebrate the 20th anniversary of the National Indigenous Congress and send a combative greeting to all compañeros and compañeras who are present in Chiapas for this.

We want to use this opportunity to tell you what’s been happening in our community San Sebastián Bachajón. We want to share our outrage about what the official commissioner Manuel Guzmán Álvaro, elected by the ejidatarios’ general assembly 18 April of this year, has done. As an indigenous and organised community we are aware that the bad government wants to displace us and that Manuel Guzmán Álvaro is part of that plan. On the 23rd of September 2016 the officialist ejido commissioner Manuel Guzmán Álvaro, along with a group of ejido residents, entered into our ejido’s territory, which has access to the Agua Azul waterfall, with the intention of displacing us. Another group of compañeros headed up by Manuel Jiménez Moreno, Juan Álvaro Moreno, Daniel Moreno Gómez, Carmen Aguilar and others had been collecting the fee to visit the Agua Azul waterfalls. This is the same place where our organisation had had its headquarters until it was burned down on 21 March 2015.

Immediately after Commissioner Manuel Guzman Alvaro’s arrival, the State Preventive Police took control of our headquarters, and for this we declare our rejection of police presence and the fact that the commissioner facilitated this incursion. This act demonstrates the desire to displace us from our land, and sends signals that Manuel Guzmán Álvaro is a servant of the bad government and a threat to the autonomy of San Sebastián Bachajón.

This is the same commissioner Manuel Guzmán Álvaro, who along with his supervisory board, publicly circulated on the 30th of September 2016 via the web page “Chiapas denuncia pública” (http://chiapasdenuncia.blogspot.mx/2016/09/ejido-san-sabastian-bachajon-exige.html) his version of what happened at the Agua Azul Waterfall toll booth. They demand to be recognised as the authorities and are carrying out blockades in various points in order to be heard. But in reality, they are not respecting our dignified struggle, our territory and autonomy as a community. Nor does the commissioner respect his own campaign commitment when he said he would not permit the bad government and their police entry to our land. But in reality what is happening is a trick to fool public opinion that this movement is one for truth, when in reality it is follows the same interests of the out-going commissioner Alejandro Moreno Gómez and the former commissioner Francisco Guzmán Jiménez also known as “el goyito”. Their actions are moving in the same direction as the bad government, and follow the lines as signed in agreement by Francisco Guzmán Jiménez with Juan Sabines Guerrero.

Our organisation, the autonomous ejido San Sebastián Bachajón has been defending the Earth and our territory for many years. We have been struggling in defence of Nature since the 14th of March 2007. That’s 11 years of dignified struggle. A lot of compañeros have lost their lives defending Mother Earth and other people have been unjustly imprisoned for also defending Mother Earth. The bad government has incarcerated 130 of our compañeros simply for their uncompromising commitment to defending Mother Earth. At the moment 3 compañeros are unjustly held prisoner in different penitentiary centres, where they are denied their freedom. For all of this, we demand that you respect our struggle, our organisation, our autonomous authorities and the spilled blood of our fallen compañeros. The dignified struggle is not for sale. It is built day after day, it is built in the memory of compañeros. We will continue standing and we will not permit the bad government to continuing buying the conscience of our indigenous communities.  This is actually what is happening when the ejido commissioner allows the police and army to enter into our territory. We are aware that what he wants to do is create a paramilitary force to finish off our struggle. He wants people to think that his struggle is also dignified when in reality what he does is contrary to what he says. Further he has no knowledge about what the bad government really wants to do to our community and territory.

No more unjust imprisonments. We demand immediate freedom for our compañeros Esteban Gómez Jiménez imprisoned in Cintalapa de Figueroa, Chiapas (amate #14) Santiago Moreno Pérez and Emilio Jiménez Gómez, prisoners in Playas de Catazaja, Chiapas (ceress #17) who were imprisoned for having a commitment to struggle for and defend Mother Earth. We also demand freedom for all men and women political prisoners in Mexico and the world.

The women and men from the northern zone in the state of Chiapas, from the community of San Sebastián Bachajón send combative greetings to all of you compañeros and compañeras, communities and people of Mexican and the world who struggle and resist against the bad governments.

Never again a Mexico without us

Land and Freedom

Zapata Lives!

Hasta la victoria siempre!

Freedom for Political Prisoners!

Juan Vázquez Guzmán Lives, the Struggle for Bachajón continues!

Juan Carlos Gómez Silvano Lives, the Struggle for Bachajón continues!

No to the Dispossession of Indigenous Lands!

State Police Out of Our Indigenous Territory!

Immediate return of our disappaired and murdered compañeros from the Teachers School – Normal Raúl Isidro Burgos de Ayotzinapa!

Long live communities that fight for autonomy and freedom!

Justice for our compañero JUAN VAZQUEZ GUZMAN, AYOTZINAPA, ACTEAL, ABC, ATENCO!

Violent attack on indigenous Tseltal defender of the land from San Sebastian Bachajón

October 18, 2016

 

14695551_1800877260127828_8900945864639347493_nEjidatarios of San Sebastián Bachajón, adherents to the Sixth Declaration of the Lacandon Jungle and participants in the CNI, reported a fierce attack against Domingo Pérez Álvaro, who is now in delicate condition. According to a communiqué from the ejidatarios, on Monday 17 October, at approximately 4 pm, people belonging to the group of the officialist ejidal commission, who are pro-government and against the struggle being carried out by the ejidatarios for land, detained and assaulted Domingo Pérez at the top of Alan Sajcun when he was on his way home.

Domingo Pérez, an indigenous Tseltal, was imprisoned for five months, along with other ejidatarios, in 2011 in the prison CERESO 17 at Playas de Catazajá on false charges and multiple violations of their human rights, for his actions in defence of the land. On the day of the attack, Domingo was returning from the same prison, where he went to visit another political prisoner from Bachajón, Santiago Moreno Pérez, on behalf of the organization.

According to the statement, the people of the ejido accused Domingo Pérez of participating in collective works on lands of the neighbouring community of Bolom Ajaw and of participating in la Sexta Bachajón. Indeed, Domingo has participated in la Sexta Bachajón since its founding, acting as a promoter of human rights and participating in the National Indigenous Congress.

 

Here is the communiqué:

Urgent. Deprivation of liberty and physical assaults on compañero from la Sexta Bachajon

October 18, 2016

 

ap16289648596006

 

URGENT. Domingo Pérez Álvaro, one of the adherents to the Sixth from the Ejido San Sebastian Bachajon and a CNI participant, has been seriously assaulted; he is our Tseltal compañero and has struggled with his people to defend their territory against the bad capitalist governments; they attacked him when he was returning from his work visiting the prisoners from Bachajón in Playas de Catazajá. We ask please for your denouncement of the acts, and dissemination of the information, because the compañero is reported to be in a grave condition following the attack, so we send you this message:

“We hereby inform you that today at about 4 pm a group of people, followers of the officialist Ejidal Commissioner of San Sebastian Bachajon, Manuel Guzman Alvaro, arrested and physically assaulted compañero Domingo Pérez Álvaro, when he was at the top of the crossroads of Alan Sajcun travelling towards his home after performing work for the organization visiting compañero prisoner Santiago Perez Moreno at CERSS 17, Playas de Catazaja, Chiapas.

Compañero Domingo Pérez Álvaro is in a delicate condition after receiving strong blows from the people of the ejido, who claim he allegedly participated in collective work in the lands of Bolom Ajaw and participated in La Sexta Bachajón.

Comrade Domingo Pérez Álvaro participated ever since the founding of La Sexta Bachajon; he has walked in promoting human rights and participates in the National Indigenous Congress, he also participated in the 20th anniversary of the CNI.

We give this urgent word to let you know and to ask for your support through the dissemination of information. We condemn the actions of the ejidal commissioner Manuel Guzman Alvaro who we hold responsible for the integrity of our colleague Domingo Pérez Álvaro and for any attack that may take place on the compañeros of La Sexta Bachajon. We ask you to remain alert for more information we will publish.

We reject their acts of dispossession which only serve to confirm their agreements with the bad government to deliver ejido lands to them.

combative greetings

Land and Freedom

Urgent information about the communiqué from the officialist commissioner of San Sebastián Bachajón.

Urgent information about the communiqué from the officialist commissioner of San Sebastián Bachajón. 

The compañeros Ejidatarios of La Sexta Ejido Bachajon warn us that the communiqué issued by the officialist [government-supporting] commissioner of San Sebastian Bachajon, published on the website of Chiapas Denuncia Pública [Frayba] does not represent the thinking and the struggle of the ejidatarios and ejidatarias of La Sexta Bachajon.

 

14523114_366802173709474_3620644798592282766_n

 

Compañeros and compañeras, we ask for your help in giving more publicity to this urgent information about the communiqué from the officialist commissioner of San Sebastián Bachajón.

We send you our combative greetings, and give all due respect for your organizations and peoples in resistance. We want to say a few words, although for now they will be short but clear and will leave no doubt about what is happening in our territory.

The officialist ejidal commissioner of San Sebastián Bachajón released a communiqué today September 30, 2016 (http://chiapasdenuncia.blogspot.mx/2016/09/ejido-san- sabastian-Bachajon-exige.html ), but it does not represent the thought and struggle of the ejidatarios and ejidatarias of La Sexta San Sebastian Bachajón, because it does not respect the territory and autonomy of our people nor does it respect his commitment when he was campaigning to become Commissioner, because he said he would not allow the bad government’s police to remain in our lands, but that is what he is currently doing and trying to fool the public that his movement is truly a struggle when in reality he is pursuing other interests. His actions make us think that he is in the service of the projects and plans of the bad government.

 

14495525_366800780376280_2105634988096600230_n

 

In the ejido San Sebastián Bachajón our autonomous organization has spent many years working in defence of the lands and many compañeros have lost their lives in defence of Mother Earth, for this reason we ask that you respect our struggle, our organization and our autonomous authorities.

The police and bad government out of our territory.

Long live autonomy.

Comrades in general we wish you all a good day, receive a warm greeting from the adherents to the Sixth Declaration of the ejido San Sebastián Bachajón.

Today marks two years since the barbaric repression in Iguala committed by the Mexican state, also killing three people and leaving three others in a coma due to the repression suffered, at the same time leaving 43 young normal school student teachers disappeared, so far they have not been given justice.

These figures are added to thousands of killed and disappeared throughout the country as well as hundreds of political prisoners incarcerated for their commitment to the defence of the peoples and of life, because we are tired of our natural resources being exploited, the bad government sends our compañeros to prison for defending our mother earth, for organising themselves, that was the crime they committed, when all we want is that our rights are respected, and our natural resources.

For the results implemented by the Mexican narco-state against the people, to impose their projects of plunder and territorial destruction by large private multinational companies, have been accompanied by the constitution, since the bad government with its reforms has privatized what corresponds to society, violating our rights as indigenous people, as they want to put an end to our struggle to achieve their ends.

 

14449832_1098830176872174_5809520046633731187_n

 

We join the national and worldwide clamour; we open our hearts to the rage and pain of the parents of our young disappeared compañeros, we protest against the bad government, we will continue in the demand for the live appearance of the missing students from Ayotzinapa. We tell them they are not alone, their struggle in the demand for justice is ours.

No more unjust imprisonments, we demand the immediate release of our compañeros unjustly imprisoned, Esteban Gómez Jiménez imprisoned in Cintalapa de Figueroa, Chiapas (amate # 14) Santiago Moreno Perez and Emilio Jimenez Gomez, prisoners in Playas de Catazajá, Chiapas (ceress # 17) who were imprisoned for having the commitment to fight and defend mother earth; we also demand the freedom of other political prisoners of Mexico and the world.

From the Northern Zone of the state of Chiapas, the women and men of San Sebastián send combative greetings to all the compañeros and compañeras and to the communities and people in Mexico and the world who are in resistance.
