Compañeros and compañeras: From the northern part of Chiapas, receive our greetings of solidarity and affection, compañeros and compañeras of New York and your allies.
On behalf of our organization, we want to thank everyone, from New York and other places, who is participating in the 5 Days of Action for the 5 Political Prisoners of San Sebastián Bachajón. We hope that you can realize this action in your own form of struggle. At present, we have little knowledge about the status of our 5 compañeros who were unjustly kidnapped by the bad, repressive government as a way of pressuring us into signing an agreement that would enable the government to takeover our lands. These lands are an inheritance left to us by our ancestors. The government has sought extensively the means to end our struggle – which is one of men and women who have the dignity to defend the little that we have: Our lands and their resources, which are, for us, an ancestral treasure. At the same time, we are filled with pride and happiness to know that you all are supporting us from New York in our struggles to defend our land and territory and to construct our just autonomy. On the other hand, however, we are filled with outrage to know that this bad governor Juan Sabines Guerrero, despite all the violence, has not cared about the lives of human beings like ourselves. We hope that the compas from Movement for Justice in El Barrio in New York can realize their activities on April 1 through the 5, since we are looking forward to them and also in the process of realizing our own action, for which at present we do not have an exact date. In thanks for your solidarity and the great support you are sending us in San Sebastian Bachajón, we send a cordial greeting to everyone.
It is worth it. Health, love, and happiness.
Land and freedom!
Zapata lives, the struggle continues!
