Oventic JBG (@SIPAZ)
In a 2 July communiqué, the Good Government Council (JBG) “Central heart of the Zapatistas before the world” from the Oventic caracol denounced the situation of Zapatista support-bases in San Marcos de Avilés, where, it suggests, the death-threats and aggressions directed these on the aprt of groups linked to political parties has increased, as has the looting of lands and the violation of rights. The JBG emphasizes that it is not a new situation, and it reviews the events in the community since 2010. Presently, it fears that there be an armed aggression, given that the aggressors have been gathering rifles and pistols, many of them supplied by Ernesto López Núñez, ex-police officer from the neighboring municipality of Chilón.
