On 27 January, observers who had been staying in the Puebla ejido to accompany the displaced in their harvest of coffee returned.  This same day, the stay of another 10 days by the displaced was announced, given that “we could not harvest all our coffee and besides some had already extracted the seeds.  Moreover, we cannot carry all this coffee to Acteal [where they have stayed in their displacement] because there is no place for us to dry the crop, and in addition we would like to leave our coffee lands clean.”  They have requested the support of more observers “so that we have more security.”
