Los Chimalapas (@Radiozapatista)
On 18 May, a confrontation between residents of San Antonio Chimalapa, pertaining to San Miguel Chimalapa, and residents from Chiapas state left two injured and four arrested.
In mid-April, it had been agreed in a meeting with federal authorities that within a month’s time, there would held another meeting between both state governments at the Secretary for Governance. It should be noted that following a presidential decree in 1967, the communards of Santa María Chimalapas were granted thousands of hectares of land by the federal government on the border between Chiapas and Oaxaca, leading to conflicts regarding previous resolutions and previously existing land-management systems.
