Sisters, brothers,
Compañeros, Compañeras,

On the morning of 9th January nearly 1,000 members of the Federal and State police evicted the ejidatarios of San Sebastián Bachajón from part of their territory. They had recuperated these lands on 21st December 21, 2014, after the bad government had violently expropriated them on 2nd February, 2011. Also during this police operation 8 ejidatarios were detained, luckily they managed to return safely to their compañeros a few hours later.

The recovery of the territory, where the renowned tourist area of the Agua Azul waterfalls is situated, was undertaken peacefully, seeking dialogue with the people themselves. At no time did the compañeros use force. The bad government never wanted to facilitate dialogue between the parties, their only response was to send more agents of the police to evict the compañeros who were guarding their own lands.

The bad government of Mexico steals lands from the campesinos to use them for the implementation of megaprojects. They call this particular megaproject the “Palenque Integrally Planned Centre” (CIPP). The bad government wants to implement in that area luxury hotels, golf courses, a superhighway, and they want to evict the people of Bachajón, with the loss of everything.

There has never been a consultation about this plan with the ejidatarios of San Sebastián Bachajón, as laid down in Convention 169 of the ILO and the San Andrés Accords. There has only been repression and dispossession. Since 2011 the government and companies have tried to impose their megaproject, ignoring their own laws and an amparo that was gained by the ejidatarios in favour of their territory.

Who would accept being dispossessed of their land without their consent? Who would give thanks if their land was destroyed and plundered for the benefit of a few millionaires? Not in Chiapas, nor anywhere in the world where dignity still exists, that which cannot be bought, and is not for sale, but is redeemed on behalf of what is called “progress”, another disguise of capitalist accumulation.

The government of Mexico and Chiapas mocks the original peoples, provoking wars and dispossessions, praising actions of repression such as the aforementioned eviction. We saw how the secretary of government was proud to have retaken the tollbooth, but what is he proud of? Of having done another service for the capitalists who live from dispossessing the riches of Mexico.

We denounce the repression from the three levels of bad government, who do not allow the dignified people of Bachajón to live in peace, those who seek autonomous forms of life and alternatives to the capitalist model. We remember and denounce that government harassment led to the murders of two compañeros from the local organization: Juan Vázquez Guzmán, on 24th April, 2013, and Juan Carlos Gómez Silvano, on 21st March 2014. The bad government also uses prison to persecute the organized ejidatarios, we remember the unjust arrest of Santiago Moreno Pérez, Emilio Jiménez Gómez and Esteban Gómez Jímenez; and of Juan Antonio Gómez Silvano, Mario Aguilar Silvano and Roberto Gómez Hernández; the last three were tortured by the Municipal Police from Chilón on 16th September, 2014.

Today, 11th January, the situation remains very tense. The ejidatarios remain in struggle with various protest actions, while the bad government shows no mercy in repressing them. We report that police shot at the compañeros with rubber bullets injuring several. Also bullet cases were collected as evidence that the public security forces shot at the ejidatarios who were demonstrating. We strongly denounce this umpteenth assault by the bad government.

We remain aware of the situation; no dispossession will stop the struggle of Bachajón and of all those people in the world who are defending life and nature in the face of death and destruction. There will be no place in the world what is already notorious is not known: the murderous Mexican government represses and usurps.

Juan Vázquez Guzmán Lives, the Bachajón struggle continues!

Juan Carlos Gómez Silvano Lives, the Bachajón struggle continues!

No to the dispossession of indigenous territories!

Freedom for political prisoners!

If you touch one of us, you touch all of us!
