Chiapas: Campesin@s from San Francisco, Teopisca, denounce new attacks


san francisco 01

The Organized Group from San Francisco, Teopisca municipality, which adheres to the Sixth Declaration of the EZLN, denounced that on 14 August, José María Trejo Narváez destroyed “the sign indicating our recovered lands by removing the tree located behind this sign, and also on 18 of this same month he was firing his gun,” as they noted in a public denunciation.  The Group continues: “[t]his person bought a plot of land of approximately 20 hectares of the lands that we already possess.  We as the group of campesinos tell you by means of our writing that these lands were already being used and that for this reason no one could buy them.”

Beyond this, a relative of Trejo Narváez, Edilberto Castellanos Domínguez, entered the area on 6 October to cut down trees “within our territory (of recovered lands).”

Lastly, the Organized Group demanded that the government relocate the persons in question, “because they have entered our lands and we do not want aggressive people in our lands.”
