EZLN Denounces Oaxaca Violence

Zapatista Supporters Fired On in the Town of Santiago Cuixtla; Two Are Seriously Injured

By Subcomandante Insurgente Marcos
Zapatista Army of National Liberation

March 11, 2006


March 7, 2006

To all adherents to the Sixth Declaration and the Other Campaign:

Compañeros and compañeras:

We have received, from the Other Oaxaca, another denunciation of the climate of repression that the compañeros and compañeras of the Other Campaign suffer in that state. It is no longer just about San Blas Atempa, Santa Catarina Juquila, Chuxnabán, Quetzaltepec Mixe, San Andrés Montaña, Silacayopan and Santiago Ixtayutla; now the following is added:

On March 4, 2006, in the community of Santiago Cuixtla, municipality of Santos Reyes Nopala, Oaxaca, the townspeople were attacked with firearms. The cowardly attack was directed by municipal mayor Freddy Gil Pineda Gopar, and by other PRI supporters, and left two people gravely injured: compañeros Jesús Carmona Mijangos and Marino Cruz Canseco. Not satisfied with shooting up a peaceful meeting, the state and municipal police arrested compañeros Roberto Sánchez Riaño, Tirso Díaz Hernández, Serefino Hernández Cruz, Simón Velasco Ruiz, Carmelo Hernández Alavés, Pedro Ramírez Hernández, Arnulfo Hernández Cortés and Severo Cruz López. In addition to these eight arrests, compañero Tomás Riuz Carmona is currently missing. These injured, detained, and disappeared compañeros are members of the Revolutionary Popular Front (FPR) and the Indian Organizations for Human Rights in Oaxaca (OIDHO), adherents to the Sixth Declaration and the Other Campaign, and demand:

1. An immediate solution to the political conflict of Santiago Cuixtla, Santos Reyes Nopala, Juquila, Oaxaca.

2. The immediate and unconditional release of the compañeros arrested in that community and the return of the compañero who was disappeared.

3. The cessation of all forms of repression and intimidation against the townspeople on the part of the municipal and state governments.

4. The removal of Santos Reyes Nopala mayor Feddy Gil Pineda Gopar and the initiation of a legal process against him and the others implicated in these events.

We call on the Other Oaxaca and on all the friends of the Other Campaign throughout the country to join us in supporting the struggle of these compañeros. Let us unite our strength against government authoritarianism.

From the Other Querétaro.
For the CCRI-CG of the EZLN and the Sixth Commission
Subcomandante Insurgente Marcos.
