We hereby inform you that the Grup Higa, staff of the Governor Eruviel and his corrupt ally, Angel Valdez Ramírez (representative of the communal property of the indigenous community of San Francisco Xochicuautla), has illegally entered with the machinery of the Grupo Higa, and besieged our community with riot police which they have placed in the main accesses to the community.
The machines are beginning to illegally work in two principle areas of the Otomí forest where a protection was recently won.
We name Ángel Valdez Ramírez and Eruviel responsible for any act of repression that is carried out, and also for the harassment they are committing against our indigenous community.
We ask that you remain alert as they seek to continue with the dispossession of the land for the construction of the private highway Toluca-Naucalpan. We will keep you informed through this medium.
