Communiqué of the Triqui Movement in Oaxaca Regarding the Recent Attack
To the media
To the human rights organizations
To the political, social and revolutionary organizations
To the people of Mexico
To the people of Oaxaca
With great regret and dismay, we inform you of the attack carried out against our compañeros where Marciano Martínez Cruz and Rafael Hernández Cisnero were assassinated and José Hernández Ramírez was disappeared. These cowardly acts are nothing more than a provocation directed toward the heart of the Agreement of Peace and Concordance for the Triqui Region signed in January of 2012.
We demand from the state government a clarification of these murderous acts, and the immediate detention of the people responsible. We demand that justice be done and that there is no impunity, no matter the cost, until the last consequences.
To the social movement of Oaxaca, we ask for your solidarity and your demand for a clarification of these crimes, the punishment of the assassins, and an urgent convocation of a table of dialogue of the ratification of the Agreement of Peace and Accordance for the Triqui Region.
These violent acts are part of the harassment and repression that we recently denounced taking place in the militant Triqui communities of our organization. They are not disconnected from the spying with drones, the shootings of habitants of San Juan Copala, and the attack against the ex-municipal agent of Ojo de Agua, Juxtlauaca.
We repudiate those who have become accustomed to profiting from violence, again seeking to destabilize the Triqui area with the intention of filling their pockets with the blood of our people.
Our organization will continue seeking peace and development for our communities, the only pathway to combat marginalization.
Finally, we urge our compañerxs of every region of Oaxaca that in whatever means possible, they carry out denunciations from their communities demanding justice for the fallen compañeros and the end to the harassment and repression against our movement.
For the ratification of the Agreement of Peace and Concordance for the Triqui Region!
Punishment to those responsible for the acts against our compañeros!
For the presentation with life of our compañero José Hernández Ramírez!
End to the harassment and repression against MULT!
For the struggle and liberation of the people!
Movimiento de Unificación y Lucha Triqui (MULT)
