Alonso López Luna was kidnapped and disappeared, and the rest of his family were forcibly displaced. They are currently living in San Cristobal de Las Casas, Chiapas, without access to their rights to land, health, education and food. This video portrays, through moving interviews, their experiences during and after the forced displacement.
