Letter from Anarchist Prisoner Jorge “Yorch” Esquivel

Update from Mexican anarchist prisoner Jorge “Yorch” Esquivel.

Hi compas,

As you know, they prolonged my legal process once again. This makes me angry, sad, and distressed because I don’t know when they are going to tell me if I will stay here or if I will be freed. Now I have another hearing scheduled for October 23, about another month and a half in here. I’m calm, but there are moments in which I can’t stand it. Last week I was forced into a fight because I couldn’t stand the provocations from another prisoner. Fortunately, I didn’t have any more serious problems and everything ended well and I wasn’t sent to punishment (part of the prison).

I hope you all will show up for my next hearing to put pressure on the people at the courts because it’s evident that they want to leave me in here. They don’t have anything that proves I am guilty, and this is all a set-up.

I thank everyone for the support and efforts that folks in other countries have given me by calling their embassies asking for my release. To the compas of Casa Chiapaz (Casa Okupa Chiapaz) for the events in solidarity that they have organized, to the punks in Lima, Perú (Oye Richi) that organized raffles for my benefit, thank you. To the compañeras of Feria anticarcelaria for sharing the writings of anarchist prisoners Mónica, Francisco, Marcelo, Tomás and Mawnhko (ex-prisoner). I am glad that the compa Mawnhko is free and I demand the immediate release of my Chilean anarchist sisters and brothers who are being held hostage by the State. Greetings to Karla and Magda (Libres Ya Comisión por Karla y Magda), to the compa Miguel Peralta (Libres Ya), I wish you all much strength and that all of the prison walls fall down. A big hug to my Mazatec sisters of Eloxochitlán de Flores Magón (Presos Políticos Eloxochitlán de Flores Magón Oaxaca). To the compa Fidencio Aldama, I hope that you soon have full freedom, also to Kenia Hernández (Libertad para Kenia), may she soon be back in her community with her people. To the compas Brandy and Tiara (@malentonadx – IG) who recently reached the three-year mark of their time in prison, I hope your situations are cleared up soon.

Freedom for political and common prisoners!
