In an open letter written to Governor Juan Sabine’s Guerero, the Abejas rejected the Governor’s invitation to meet with his representatives. In the letter dated September 7th, the Abejas requested that the perpetrators of the Acteal massacre of 1997 not be released. They also expressed their disagreement with the state government’s actions, which they say seek to divide their organization through offers of financial support and projects.
