MOVEMENT FOR JUSTICE IN EL BARRIO OF NEW YORK –

WARM GREETINGS FROM SAN SEBASTIÁN BACHAJÓN

Compañeras and compañeros, by way of the following, we want to thank you for these 5 Days of Action that you have realized in solidarity with our imprisoned compañeros and thank all the other compañeros from other countries who joined in this noble cause, since we as indigenous people suffer greatly the injustices of the bad government of Juan Sabines Guerrero. He currently mistreats our unjustly imprisoned compañeros by forcing them to work sunrise to sunset, and threatening them with worse confinement if they do not obey his orders of forced work.  For this reason, we wish to make you aware that this bad government has taken additional repressive measures to pressure us into handing over our lands and resources to them. It fills us with courage to know that you are demonstrating such great heart to continue exposing this bad state and federal government’s neoliberal interests and its continued violation of our rights as men and women who wish to build a just form of autonomy for everyone.

Compañeras and compañeros:

Thank you for everything and we will remain in contact to be better prepared for all the repression that the government will exercise against our imprisoned compañeros.

Attentively:

Land and Freedom!

Zapata Lives, the Struggle Continues!

Until Victory, Always!

Long live the Compañeros and Compañeras of New York, Adherents of the Other Campaign, and Their Allies!
