Oaxaca: People Demand Payment of Social Programs During AMLO’s Tour of State

October 14, 2019

AMLO@EFE

On October 6th, during a speech before 2,506 students from Huajuapan High School, Oaxaca, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) faced protests from the public present while referring to advances in various social programs. The president explained that, “they are going to arrive, justice takes time but arrives.” He added that, “if an authority is not popular there they are questioning and questioning the authority! We no longer have to be that way, there has to be unity,” requesting “don’t get us wrong, respect each other, I say it affectionately. It is not the same as before.” In the course of his public appearance, interruptions followed. In the end, AMLO declared that “we have to quench that hunger and thirst for justice, but we have to do it in an orderly manner, with a strategy, that this is what I ask, that you have patience with me and that there is understanding because first we are seeing to things generally, which includes and benefits more people.” Referring to promises of his campaign, he pointed out that, “we are going to root out corruption, it’s not just talk” and that “the Fourth Transformation is neither rhetoric nor demagogy.” In Huajuapan, 74 university-level students receive scholarships of 2,400 pesos per month and 176 young people, who neither work nor study, collaborate in workshops, receiving 3,600 pesos per month.

Before coming to Huajuapan, AMLO visited the community of the Santiago Juxtlahuaca Rural Hospital, also in Oaxaca. It is part of a tour of the 80 hospitals of IMSS Welfare throughout the country. During his visit he was accompanied by Zoe Robledo, the general director of the IMSS, and the Oaxaca governor, Alejandro Murat. There he announced his next visits: “Finishing the health tour, I will start a tour to talk to all the native peoples of Mexico, all cultures. For once, I won’t be going around with secrets, my heart is not a cellar, I always say what I think, if an agreement is reached between all the expressions of the Triqui culture, I start the tour in San Juan Copala (in Oaxaca). If there is an agreement, there we will sign a peace agreement that will be historic.” In addition, he called on people “to unite, no hatred, no resentment, and forgive … we have to forgive and embrace and love and be fraternal, become more and more human.”

National: Parents of 43 Ayotzinapa Student Teachers March in Mexico City, Numerous Protests Mark Fifth Anniversary of Disappearance

October 7, 2019

Ayotzi@sopitas.com

On the fifth anniversary of the disappearance of their children, parents of the 43 students of the Normal Rural School of Ayotzinapa disappeared in Iguala, Guerrero, in September 2014, held a peaceful demonstration in Mexico City and demanded results in the investigation of the case from the Mexican government. This same day they also spoke in the Chamber of Deputies, where they told their personal experiences, and highlighted the irregularities and the failure of government investigations and actions so far.

Cruz Mendoza, one of the parents, said: “This government that we have right now, I believe it is willing, although until now there have just been words and more words, because the case has not progressed much, as we would like it to. We will continue in this fight, walking, as for five years, that have been of suffering, tormented. It’s five years I don’t want to remember, I feel like it’s the first day. We don’t know anything about our children, where they are, what happened to them.”

Demonstrations were also held in other parts of the country. In Chiapas, students from the Jacinto Canek and Mactumatza schools held a march of around 500 people in Tuxtla Gutierrez. In Oaxaca, student teachers also demonstrated, while the Institute of Graphic Arts of Oaxaca (IAGO in its Spanish acronym) organized an exhibition of kites made by Francisco Toledo, in memory of the 43 victims.

In the activities in Mexico City, around one hundred people committed acts of vandalism, which damaged 30 businesses and public offices, and left two injured police officers. The parents of the 43 distanced themselves from these actions, emphasizing that they were the work of only a fraction of the more than 5,000 people who participated in the demonstrations in this City.

For his part, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) wore a shirt that the parents of the 43 gave him on the day, as an expression of his support. He reiterated his government’s commitment to establishing the truth about what happened.

On September 18th, Vidulfo Rosales, lawyer for the relatives of the 43 students of the Ayotzinapa Rural Normal School who disappeared in Iguala, Guerrero in September 2014, reported that after a meeting with the attorney general, Alejandro Gertz Manero, he agreed to restart the investigations “almost, almost from scratch” while recognizing “the irregularities that were committed.”

After the meeting in which President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) participated as an honorary witness, the member of the Tlachinollan Mountain Human Rights Center announced that it seeks to have “a solid base” and that, in December, a first evaluation will be made of the new inquiries. He added that Gertz Manero offered that all mechanisms would be sought to prevent the continued release of more accused persons in relation to the events.

“We have the route from here to December, we must have clear advances in the lines of investigation that we have pointed out, there must be people held responsible for the irregularities, indications of where the students are must be strengthened, who, as long as we do not have scientific and irrefutable evidence, are still being looked for alive,” the lawyer said.

For his part, and upon leaving the meeting in the national palace, the Special Prosecutor of the Ayotzinapa Case Unit, Omar Gomez Trejo, said that “many officials who have been acting in the different areas of responsibility” are being investigated. He added that “we are carrying out nine searches in different places” and will soon undertake two more. He stressed that “the main commitment is to make an independent, objective, clear investigation that breaks that narrative that has been created in the previous years.”

Upon leaving the meeting, on behalf of the fathers and mothers of the 43 student teachers, Cristina Bautista, stressed that these commitments generate “faith and hope” as “a step forward to continue with the investigations.” She clarified, however, that “trust in officials will be built as the investigation progresses.”

On September 15th, a few days before the fifth anniversary of the forced disappearance of 43 students from the Normal Rural School of Ayotzinapa, in Iguala, Guerrero, the undersecretary of Human Rights of the Interior, Alejandro Encinas, reported that a judge granted the freedom to 24 accused for their alleged participation in the events. He added that there are already 77 people released, of the 142 who had been arrested in the case, and that there are only 65 people detained in relation to it. He left open the possibility that there could still be more releases. He considered that this constitutes a “serious precedent” and an “affront to the victims, to the parents and a mockery of justice”; He said that “it shows the misery, the rot in which the justice system in the country finds itself.” “The Attorney General’s Office (FGR) must endorse responsibilities to the ex-judge Jesus Murillo Karam, as well as Tomas Zeron de Lucio – formerly in charge of the Criminal Investigation Agency (CIA) ”, Encinas, who heads the Commission for the Truth and Access to Justice in the Ayotzinapa case, also stated. The day before, the Prosecutor’s Office of Ayotzinapa, attached to the FGR, announced that it will “present all the resources” against the officials who “have failed to fulfill their functions” since the beginning of the case.

The next day, the National Human Rights Commission (CNDH in its Spanish acronym) also regretted these releases and reiterated the “need for all criminal proceedings initiated to be strengthened” following the recommendation 15VG / 2018 issued by this body in November 2018, which “has not yet been seen to or fulfilled.” “It is urgent that the current Prosecutor General of the Republic (FGR in its Spanish acronym) acts to remedy such situations, strengthening, redirecting or initiating new criminal proceedings, duly supported, that allow the re-apprehension of those who were responsible that had been released,” he said.

On September 11th, relatives of the 43 students of the Normal Rural School of Ayotzinapa who disappeared in Iguala, Guerrero, in September 2014, held a private meeting with President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO).

According to the PRODH Center, which accompanies the family members, they “stated before the president that not all institutions – notably, the FGR, SEDENA and the Federal Police – are making efforts together with the Commission for Truth and Access to the Justice of the Ayotzinapa case, headed by Alejandro Encinas, from whom they recognized the commitment put things in the order.” For this reason they asked AMLO to intercede before the Attorney General, Alejandro Gertz Manero, “to reiterate his commitment in the investigation, including in the investigations of those responsible for the irregularities, and to meet with them. They also asked for the deepening of international aid, which has arrived in a timely manner and, especially, that Lopez Obrador does not leave them alone.” The PRODH Center also reported that “the head of the Executive established four commitments: establish bimonthly meetings with families; manage a meeting with the FGR; call on institutions, including SEDENA, to support the Commission and deepen international assistance.”

After the meeting, the undersecretary of the Interior for human rights, Alejandro Encinas, informed that there is “new evidence” available to the Ayotzinapa Truth Commission that allows us to assume that disappeared student teachers remain in the state of Guerrero: “There are indications that we are investigating just now. New clues, lines of inveatigation that were not taken care of and the lines of investigation that we are developing.” He also said that the meeting with the parents of the student teachers was “excellent and on very good terms.”

The next day, AMLO explained the actions carried out by the government in a press conference and said that, “we need results, to know where youths are, and we are doing everything that can be done, should be done, everything. Yesterday I explained the decisions that have been taken in this regard and our interest in continuing the search for the youths is a matter of the highest priority for the government, it is a justice and humanitarian issue.”

Chiapas: EZLN Announces Creation of New Caracoles, Autonomous Municipalities, Centers of Autonomous Resistance and Rebellion and Various Other Initiatives

August 25, 2019

EZLNNew Caracol at CIDECI Unitierra

In a statement published on August 17th, Subcomandante Moises, on behalf of the General Command of the Indigenous Revolutionary Clandestine Committee (CG-CCRI in its Spanish acronym) of the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN in its Spanish acronym), announced that, in accordance with what was stated by the National Indigenous Congress (CNI in its Spanish acronym), of “going on the offensive and extending the word and action of resistance and rebellion”, the EZLN decided to “break the fence” forming new Caracoles (autonomous regions that will now be 12) and more autonomous Zapatista rebel municipalities in new areas of southeastern Mexico. He also reported on the creation of Centers of Autonomous Resistance and Zapatista Rebellion (CRAREZ in its Spanish acronym), which in most cases “will also be the headquarters of Caracoles, Good Government Councils and Zapatista Rebel Autonomous Municipalities (MAREZ in its Spanish acronym)”.

He stressed that, “who thought that with their counterinsurgency policy of alms, he would divide Zapatismo and buy the loyalty of non-Zapatistas, encouraging confrontation and discouragement, gave the reasons that were needed to convince those brothers and sisters that it is necessary to defend the earth and nature.”

He invited “the Sixth, the Networks, the CNI and the honest people to come and, together with the Zapatista peoples, participate in the construction of the CRAREZ, be it obtaining materials and economic support, be it hammering, cutting, loading, orienting and living with us or in the way and manner that they see that suits them.”

He also summoned a Forum in defense of territory and Mother Earth be held in a Zapatista Caracol on dates to be defined in October “to meet and know the work we have committed to, share problems, difficulties, blows, headaches, but also the seeds that serve to harvest better from the struggle.”

He called the Sixth and the Networks “to begin the analysis and discussion for the formation of an International Network of Resistance and Rebellion, Polo, Nucleus, Federation, Confederation, or whatever it is called, based on the independence and autonomy of those who form it, explicitly renouncing to hegemonize and homogenize, in which mutual solidarity and support are unconditional, share the good and bad experiences of each other’s struggle, and work on the dissemination of the stories from below and to the left.” He announced that “bilateral meetings with groups, collectives and organizations that are working in their geographies” will be convened.

He said that they will invite “THOSE WHO MAKE ART, SCIENCE AND CRITICAL THOUGHT THEIR VOCATION AND LIFE” “to festivals, meetings, seedbeds, parties, exchanges, or whatever those sharings are going to be called”; that they will convene “meetings of relatives of murdered, disappeared and imprisoned, as well as organizations, groups and collectives that accompany [them in] their pain, their anger and their search for truth and justice”, that “a new meeting of Women who fight, in the times, places and modalities that they decide” will be held, possibly “a meeting of otroas” as well as a “meeting of groups, collectives and organizations defending Human Rights, in the form and modality they decide.”

Given this announcement, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador declared that “yesterday there was a Zapatista statement, saying that they were going to expand, that they will create more autonomous municipalities. Welcome. Because this means working for the benefit of communities and peoples.” “More actions, less talk, that is, theory and practice, thought and action. That is what we are sponsoring and we recommend, respectfully”, he said.

In previous days and through three communiqués, Subcomandante Galeano presented a political analysis of the current moment. He stated among other things that, “it rains everywhere and on everyone. At least here below. Perhaps some, just begin to feel the cold drops stinging their body; but for others, and not only for native peoples, it rains on the wet: pillage, robbery, threats, persecution, jail, disappearance, rape, blows, death … and, yes, sometimes alms.” He stressed that “up there they declare that everything is going well, and down here that everything is going wrong, and that it is going to get worse” and that in the present it is sought to cancel “any criticism, pointing out, observation that have as a basis a rigorous and documented analysis.”

He also warned that, “a world economic crisis is coming” recognizing that “anyone who would have stayed (Meade, Anaya, El Bronco or Miss Xerox) would have had to face that “adverse global environment” (this is what Think Tanks of big capital say) and get defeated and look guilty. And everyone would have done and would be doing what the current government does: lie and cover up.” “They would have started celebrating themselves; they would have solemnly declared that a new cycle of hope, work and bonanza began for the territory that is south of the Rio Grande and west of Guatemala and Belize: they would have distributed the same alms although with another name; they would have taken care more than a few things they had promised in the campaign; they would have blamed resentment and envy, the criticisms made of them; would have made calls to unity and patriotism, would have prostrated the same before the designs, bravado and insults of the foreman who, in the troubled and brutal north, drools; and they would have attributed their mistakes to the “adverse international environment,” “he said.

The statement addressed among other issues: the treatment of migrants; the “manner and servile tone and crawling in front of the US government”; “The defeat of secularism”; “The impulse and acceleration of megaprojects and the destruction of territories of the original peoples”; and finally “the encouragement of individualism and the confrontation with the community with the delivery of support [programmes] such as Sowing Life.”

Guerrero: New Stage in Investigation of Ayotzinapa Case – Creation of Special Investigation Unit with Omar Gomez Trejo as Head

July 8, 2019

AyotziPhoto @ teleSUR

On June 26th, Agreement A/010/19 was published in the Official Gazette of the Federation, with which the Special Investigation and Litigation Unit for the Ayotzinapa case was created.

“The agreement establishes that the Special Unit will be responsible for the investigation and prosecution of the crimes committed in Iguala, Guerrero, in September 2014, until the conclusion of all the criminal proceedings related to the events that led to the disappearance of the 43 students from the ‘Raúl Isidro Burgos’ Normal School.”

On the same day, the Attorney General’s Office (FGR in its Spanish acronym) reported that the teacher Omar Gomez Trejo would occupy the ownership of the new unit.

“For the relatives of the disappeared students and for the organizations that accompany them, the announcement means the beginning of a new stage in the criminal investigation (…) in particular, the appointment of the new head is a reason for hope.” This is due to his knowledge of the case and his long career in human rights organizations.

As a first initiative, the head of the Special Unit for Investigation and Litigation of the FGR and the Commission for Truth and Access to Justice for the Ayotzinapa case, agreed to design a work plan to guarantee progress such as, “the integration of all the archives of investigation linked to the case and that, depending directly on the Attorney General, would guarantee substantive progress in the investigation and clarification of the Ayotzinapa case”, the Government Secretariat stated.
