In observation of the world day of Prayer for Peace on 21 September, Professor Alberto Patishtán Gómez, prisoner of the San Cristóbal de Las Casas jail and member of the “Voz del Amate,” organization of prisoners who are adherents to the other campaign, called on “all brothers and sisters” to join the day of Prayer for Peace “so that God takes into account these wishes we make for justice and dignity for all those who have suffered this disgrace and those problems that the government has made for them.”
