Sisters and brothers, compañeras and compañeros, receive a combative salute from our place of struggle and resistance.

From inside these four walls where we are being held captive by injustice, we express our solidarity with our brothers and sisters of the community of Nuevo San Gregorio, in the Autonomous Municipality of Lucio Cabañas, Chiapas. We express our solidarity with the caravan of observation and solidarity accompanying the community to resume work in the fields and grow food that our mother earth provides us, for the conservation of the lives of the most vulnerable, like children, women and elders.

On the other hand, we thank the accompaniment of SIPAZ and SweFOR and the Fray Bartolome de las Casas Human Rights Center, along with other organizations and collectives that are attentive to our Zapatista brothers and sisters.

Sincerely,

Organization Vineketik en Resistencia

Marcelino Ruiz Gómez
