Ejido of San Sebastián Bachajón Denounce Collaboration of Member of the Political Party MORENA in the Dispossession of Their Territory
Compañeros and Compañeras, receive our combative greetings. Here we want to make the word of our organization known regarding the latest actions of the ejidal commission official Manuel Guzmán Álvaro. Furthermore, we solicit your help in diffusing this message.
Since taking position as the official authority of San Sebastián Bachajón, Guzmán Álvaro has carried out acts of violence with his people, soliciting the intervention of the authorities of the three levels of government. He was able to bring the public force that today is guarding the Indigenous territory of the ejido.
Without the consent and knowledge of the people, he has been utilizing the agreement of 2011 signed by Juan Sabines Guerrero and the ex-commissioner Francisco Guzmán Jiménez. While they signed the agreement 117, adherents of the sixth were kidnapped and unjustly incarcerated. A wave of violence and repression was carried out by the bad governors, together with the ex-ejidal commissioner Francisco Guzmán Jiménez. This agreement was not made under orders of the general assembly, but was organized and documented by some bad members at the service of the bad government. With that, they are utilizing the current ejidal commissioner Manuel Guzmán Álvaro to ask for evictions, police presence and benefits from the income of the waterfalls of Agua Azul
What the current ejidal commissioner is doing is deceiving the people, portraying his struggle as a dignified struggle in defense of territory, when he acts as a servant to the bad government. The ideas they are using today are ideas of Juan Jiménez alias “JIGO” and are the same strategies that they utilized in 2011 in the repression of the compañerxs.
Not only did he deceive the people at that time, but today he is doing the same. Juan Jiménez participated with the ex-commissioner Pedro Álvaro Hernández who was also acting against the people when he was the agent of Bachajón. This was together with the ex-ejidal commissioner Francisco Guzmán Jiménez. He also participated with the ex-ejidal commissioner Alejandro Moreno Gómez. Since that time he has been participating in harassment and repression, organizing paramilitary forces to dispossess the ejido compañerxs, and adherents of the sixth.
Now again, they are deceiving the people, the Indigenous people that do not have knowledge of what they truly intend to do. Juan Jiménez is not only elaborating strategies to dispossess the lands of San Sebastián, but he is also a member of the political party MORENA and the presidential candidate of Chilón. He is supported by other political party members, as well as the advisor of the paramilitary group Paz y Justicia who today is the sub-secretary of government of the Tzeltal and Chol jungle zone centered in Yajalón, Chiapas, Lic. Alpuche. He too, has been operating repression and harassment against the compañerxs of the Tila ejido. He maintained close coordination with the sub-secretary commissioner Manuel Guzmán Álvaro and his security counsel as can be seen in the photographs that are published with this note.
During the highway blockades in October of this year that were carried out by the ejidal commissioner Manuel Guzmán Álvaro and his people, the money obtained in the blockades was put in the hands of Juan Jiménez alias “JIGO” to finance his campaign for the municipal president of Chilón for the party MORENA.
It is like this that the current commissioner Manuel Guzmán Álvaro is linked to the dispossession of the lands of San Sebastián Bachajón. He is participating with the political party members so they can easily put our natural resources in the hands of the bad government.
We share with you the following photos to show that the ejidal commissioner has been participating with political party members; among them the advisor of the paramilitary group Paz y Justice, today sub-secretary of government of the Tzeltal and Chol jungle zone centered in Yajalón, Chiapas, Lic. Alpuche.
