Alejandro Díaz Sántiz, a prisoner held in the no. 5 prison of San Cristóbal de Las Casas who is also in solidarity with the Voz del Amate and an adherent to the Sixth Declaration of the Lacandona Jungle of the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN), has published a communique directed at all the “comrade mothers and fathers of the disappeared students of Ayotzinapa and Iguala, Guerrero.  By means of this space I wish to send you a greeting and a strong embrace to each of you; I hope that the blessings of God will always illuminate each of your activities.  I greatly lament the events of 26 September.  In light of these lamentable acts of the bad governments, [we see that] they seek ways to silence the people who defend the people: some are imprisoned, while others are killed or disappeared altogether.  With pain in my heart I express my solidarity with all of you.  I request of God that they appear alive, for they were taken alive, and we want them alive once again.  Despite the hundreds of kilometers that divide us, I feel very close to you all, knowing that you will never tire of telling the truth.”

Beyond this, he continued discussing the situation “of the bad governments” which are “huge assassins and kidnappers, but they never will enter prison, because they protect one another.  On the other hand, a Tsotsil indigenous man can be deprived of his liberty for several years, as in my own case.  I have been incarcerated for 15 years and 7 months for having committed no crime at all.”

Lastly, he called on the parents of the disappeared to continue struggling, as well as for “all the independent organizations of the world to join the demand of return home with life of each and all of our disappeared brothers.”
