Coordination and Monitoring Committee of the CNI-CIG Reports Actions of Discrediting and Criminalization of MAIZ

The National Indigenous Congress denounces attempts to discredit, delegitimize and criminalize the Zapatista Indigenous Agrarian Movement (MAIZ) through attempts to link it to organized crime.

The Congress further states that, ”as indigenous peoples, Zapatistas and non-Zapatistas, we continue and will continue to resist against the repression that the state exercises through the Armed Forces, the National Guard and the police forces and now against the wave of terror sown by the cartels and the paramilitaries supported by federal and state governments. And we will continue to rebuild autonomous living systems without capitalism or patriarchy that guarantee a dignified life for future generations.”
