Alejandro Díaz Sántiz, prisoner in solidarity with the Voz del Amate, who continues to be held in Prison No. 5 of San Cristóbal de Las Casas, made public a denunciation on 28 November regarding the situation of the prisoner Miguel Antonio López Santiago, who on 19 November initiated a hunger strike to demand justice and freedom.  “During the 10 days he has been [on hunger strike], he has only received death-threats and psychological torture from the Lobo group [Wolf], the chief of security Juan Gabriel Soberano Pimentel, saying that they will force him to eat if he does not cancel his protest.”  He continues: “with this we ask that his rights be respected, because each prisoner has the right to protest insofar as that be peaceful.”

For his part, Alejandro Díaz called on state governor Manuel Velasco Coello to observe his commitment to find a means of connecting with the authorities of Veracruz to obtain freedom for Díaz Sántiz, “but to date no response has been had.”
