Chiapas: denunciation of military incursions on part of OCEZ-Carranza Region


In a communiqué published on 23 December, the Emiliano Zapata Carranza Region Campesino Organization (OCEZ-RC) denounced invasions by the Army in its zone of influence since 11 December and demanded a halt to the harassment on the part of soldiers against its members.  It notes that “we are tired of the threats and harassment carried out by the Federal Army, who hold our comrades that go out to work or for reasons of health toward the municipal center and other points; they intimidate us with their weapons and verbal threats, and they have increased their patrols in the communities that correspond to the territory of the OCEZ-Carranza Region.”

They also expressed their solidarity with the “families of the more than 64000 dead, more than 1200 disappeared, and thousands of displaced persons resulting from the war that President Calderón Hinojosa has implemented since the beginning of his term.”
