The Mexican Supreme Court can stop the state government’s attempt to take away 130 hectares of land from the ejidatarios of Tila, Chiapas. Ricardo, a member of the Fray Bartolomé de las Casas Human Rights Center, explains the case.
Independent journalists and social network communicators in Chiapas are detained and harassed.
After the release from prison of 15 new paramilitary members physically responsible for the Massacre of Acteal, the Las Abejas civil organization gave a press conference this last October 22, where they denounce these actions by the Mexican government.
The court is currently reviewing the case of the ejido Tila; they will be deciding whether they force the ejido to accept indemnity or whether the Mexican state will have to recognize its right as indigenous peoples to their territory, and return the 130 hectares.
