Friday 24th April, 2015 marks the second anniversary of the brutal assassination of Juan Vázquez Guzmán of San Sebastián Bachajón.

On 23rd April, 2015, members of the families of the 43 disappeared students from Ayotzinapa visited Movement for Justice in El Barrio in New York. During this special gathering, they commemorated together the dear compa Juan Vázquez Guzmán, community leader, spokesperson and activist of the ejido San Sebastián Bachajón.

For this commemoration, Juan Vázquez Guzmán’s family sent the following videomessage.

Narrated by Juan’s brother Julian, the videomessage tells how Juan was shot by thugs of the bad government outside his house, and leaves two sons, aged 6 and 8, who are being brought up by their grandparents.

URGENT NEW VIDEOMESSAGE FROM SAN SEBASTIÁN BACHAJÓN

bachajon9

 

Greetings Compas 

So that we can jointly continue to show solidarity with the dignified struggle of their community in Chiapas, Mexico, we are asking people of good heart to organize screenings of this new video made by Springfield No One Leaves and the Committee of the True Word of Alisal. The video is in Spanish with English subtitles, and is approximately 8 minutes long. In the video, the ejidatarios of San Sebastián Bachajón send a special videomessage in which they make an urgent call for solidarity.

The video tells of more than six years of struggle by the adherents to the Sixth Declaration from San Sebastián Bachajón against dispossession and in defense of their communal lands. During this time, two of their leaders, Juan Vázquez Guzmán and Juan Carlos Gómez Silvano, have been murdered, and 120 people have been imprisoned. Most of these prisoners are now free, thanks to national and international solidarity, but three political prisoners remain in prison.

Focusing on the continuing dignified resistance of the people of San Sebastián Bachajón, the video features the events surrounding their recuperation, on 21st December 2014, of their lands which had been stolen by the bad government, the violent eviction of members of the community by state and federal forces on 9th January, 2015, and the ongoing intermittent roadblock. Since then, the compañer@s have founded a new regional headquarters called “Región San Sebastián” near the Agua Azul junction. Currently, the regional headquarters is at serious risk of eviction. The film ends with a tribute to the great fighter for justice Juan Vázquez Guzmán. 

The video can be downloaded here:

Land and Resistance in San Sebastián Bachajón

 

By Los Tejemedios

 

Video with basic English subtitles about the resistance of the people of the Ejido San Sebastián Bachajón in the municipality of Chilón, Chiapas. Their struggle is for their right to their land, and for the defence and construction of their autonomy. The video shows how they have been repressed for demanding their rights.

 

Please note an ejido is a communal landholding, and the caseta de cobre is the toll/ticket booth giving access to the waterfalls.
