In the face of the aggressions with firearms against the EZLN Support Bases of the autonomous community of Moisés and Gandhi on October 13, 2021 in Chiapas-Mexico, we DEMAND:

Immediate cease to the criminal actions of the ORCAO paramilitaries!

Cease the harassment of the Autonomies and Life built by the EZLN!

Brothers and sisters, compañeros and compañeras,

The Good Government Council “Nuevo Amanecer en Resistencia y Rebeldía por la Vida y la Humanidad”, Caracol 10 “Floreciendo la Semilla Rebelde,” informed Red de Resistencia y Rebeldía AJMAQ that, slightly over a month after the arbitrary detention of the autonomous authorities José Antonio Sánchez Juárez and Sebastián Núñez Pérez, by the paramilitary group of the Regional Organization of Coffee Growers from Ocosingo (Orcao).

That same group, last night, 13 October 2021, at approximately 20:30, once again attacked the bases of support of the EZLN of the autonomous community of Moisés and Gandhi.

At 1:25 this morning, the gunfire increased, reaching the Autonomous Middle School. At 2:20, the strongly armed group were positioned only 90 feet from the homes of the families bases of support of the EZLN, who were therefore forcefully displaced in search of a safe shelter.

The aggressions of the paramilitary group ended at approximately 3:30, according to information from the Good Government Council.

We demand respect to the land and territory of the Zapatista peoples, their autonomy and free determination.

No more criminal actions by the ORCAO paramilitary group!
No more harassment against the autonomy and life built by the EZLN!
