Compañeras and compañeros,
We want to inform you that today at seven in the morning caciques entered our territory claiming to be owners of the recuperated land that rightfully belongs to us. White guards in 30 disguised trucks accompanied them. They entered violently, beginning to burn our stuff and throw gas.
As people organized in the Sixth Declaration of the Lancandon Jungle, of the space of struggle of Semilla Digna and members of the National Indigenous Congress (CNI), we decided to recover these lands on the 20th of December, 2015, that rightfully belong to us. These are the lands that we have worked for generations, and those that claim to be the owners of the lands are Francisco Ruiz, Rodrigo Ruiz, and Octovin Albores.
For these reasons, we ask you to be attentive to whatever aggression may be carried out against us, and we claim the three levels of bad government responsible. Compañeros and compañeras, we will keep you informed of the situation.
San Isidro Los Laureles, Municipality of Venustiano Carranza
Members of the space of struggle Semilla Digna
