Chiapas: The Violence That Above They Try To Conceal

“In his morning conference on June 23, the head of the federal executive, accompanied by the Secretary of the Interior, the Secretary of National Defense and the Governor of Chiapas, minimized the attacks against Zapatista communities and the serious and widely documented situation in the state of Chiapas. This attitude not only seems alarming to us, but we are concerned that it could be the preamble to an even greater physical and/or media attack. Minimizing violence encourages paramilitary groups by covering them with a cloak of impunity. The words directed against Samir Flores Soberanes prior to his assassination, a crime that remains unpunished to this day, are engraved in our memory.”
