Chiapas: new denunciation by prisoners Solidarios de la Voz del Amate


On 23 December, prisoners associated with the organization Solidarios de la Voz del Amate being held in the San Cristóbal de Las Casas prison published a new denunciation affirming that “In all of Mexico and other countries in which men and women and their families are celebrating convivially and happily these days 24 and 25 December, giving and receiving love and warmth and the embrace of the father of the family, but due to the regime of the bad system that we live we are separated from our families due to unjust imprisonment and the fabrication of crimes that has caused us much suffering.  An example of this is that on Christmas in place of celebrating in harmony with our wives and children we pass this day only with sadness, a sadness that has become courage.”

They call on governor Juan Sabines Guerrero “to intervene to grant us the unconditional liberty that we deserve; we also request from the federal government the release of political prisoner Alberto Patishtán Gómez who finds himself held in Prison No. 8 in Guasave, Sinaloa.
