Chiapas: Oventic JBG once again demands the liberation of Francisco Sántiz López

At the beginning of June, the Oventic Good-Government Council (JBG) released a video-message in which it once again demands the immediate and unconditional release of Francisco Santiz López, a Zapatista support-base who has been accused of homicide and who has been incarcerated in the San Cristóbal de las Casas jail since last year.  They repeat that “We have denounced and demanded his release from the three levels of the bad government that would continue with the violation of human rights.  Our comrade Francisco is totally innocent; the only crime he has committed is to be a Zapatista support-base.”

In the same message, the JBG expresses its gratitude for the second week of the global struggle “To tear down the walls of the dungeon,” that will continue until 15 June: “To you with your efforts for the struggle for justice we say to continue, because the bad state and federal governments will clearly continue their war against us Zapatistas andagainst all those people who work for justice and to defend their rights.”
