Mitzitón: New threats by the army of God against the community.

Tuesday June 1, 2010
The community of Mitzitón, in resistance against the construction of the highway from San Cristobal to Palenque, and adherent to the Other Campaign, today denounced the continuing acts of provocation by the Army of God – Eagle Wings, in the face of which the community has shown great patience and has not been provoked to retaliate.
However, tension is now increasing following the announcement by the paramilitaries that they “are going to commit a massacre worse than that of Acteal”.

The compas say, “We want to express our concern as this is not the first time that the paramilitaries have threatened us, and  when they have made threats, they have been fulfilled, so we make the bad government responsible for anything that happens to any of our compas, and ask that once and for all the government remove the paramilitaries from our community”.
