National Indigenous Congress Strongly Condemns the Harassment that the Chol Community of Ejido Tila in Chiapas is Suffering

To the people of the world

To the national and international sixth

To the free media

The people, nations, neighborhoods and tribes that make up the National Indigenous Congress, strongly condemn the harassment that the Chol community of the Ejido Tila in the state of Chiapas is suffering. We are speaking specifically of the provocation that occurred through the orchestrated operation between military and police forces around 6:20 pm on August 2, 2016. The objective was to intimidate the compañerxs that were located near the ruins of the facilities that had been illegally built by the City Hall.

With three military vehicles and accompanied by political parties and members of the City Council, the bad government sought to produce fear in the dignified town of Tila that continues constructing its autonomy, auto-determined and from below, where they have regenerated their self-government pursing the defense of their land.

We note that the party members and the City Council have encouraged the reformation and strengthening of the paramilitary group Paz y Justicia, which accompanied by the military invasions in recent days, gives account of the counterinsurgency war that persists in the zone against the original peoples of Chiapas that decide to organize and not permit more displacement by the bad government.

We hold all three levels of government responsible for whatever aggression that our hermanxs of Tila suffer, whose autonomy and territory are fully supported in agrarian law and in their ancestral rights as an Indigenous community.

To the Chol people of Tila, we say that you are not alone, that the National Indigenous Congress knows that your struggle is important and that in every moment we are with you.
