After seventeen years, Indigenous prisoner in struggle Adrián Gómez Jiménez has been released from prison in Chiapas, Mexico. Read below the statement from the Working Group No Estamos Todxs.
We want to inform everyone that after years of struggle, our compañero Adrián Gómez Jiménez is finally free.
For years, our compa Adrián has been struggling for his freedom. He has denounced the Mexican state for fabricating guilty pleas through torture, as was the situation in his case. He has also continually denounced corruption, and the violation of human rights committed daily inside the prisons in Mexico. Furthermore, his heart has always been in solidarity, leading him to defend other prisoners.
Adrián’s struggle has taught us many things, that dignified rage is never extinguished and the struggle for truth and justice never diminished. We have been fortunate enough to accompany our compañero in this process, for which we are deeply grateful.
We know that this struggle is still not over. We will continue in the struggle for the freedom of our compañeros, Abraham y Germán López Montejo and Marcelino Ruiz Gómez. The prisons continue being extermination centers created for the poorest and most vulnerable, for those who raise their voice. We will not stop until the prisons seize to exist. But today is a day to celebrate without losing perspective that there is still much to be done.
Down with the prison walls!
