Chiapas: Banavil Displaced Families Remember the Death of Antonia Lopez Luna

banavil(@CDHFBC)

From 21-23 February, displaced families from Banavil, Tenejapa municipality, temporarily returned to their homes to visit the tomb of Antonia Lopez Mendez, the daughter of one of the families, who died in conditions of forced displacement on February 21, 2015, at the age of 11.

In a statement, they complained that in the five years and two months they have been displaced, the government has not worried about “the suffering of other children who are displaced in the city of San Cristobal de Las Casas” and that “like Antonia, there are many girls, children killed, because of bad government and they have not clarified or investigated, as with the children massacred in Acteal.”
