As Tzotzil prisoners in struggle, and as sisters, brothers, compañeros and compañeras of the same heart and feelings, we express our solidarity with the compañero Fidencio Aldama and we demand his freedom. We know how difficult these five years have been for him, separated from his family, deprived of his freedom, and paying for a prefabricated crime.
We know how difficult it has been for you, Fidencio, and your family, but remember that with our hearts, we will always accompany you. We know that your dignified struggle is for justice and for the life of our Indigenous peoples and communities.
We want you know that your struggle is our struggle and that you are not alone. We share your feelings, your resistance, your rebellion, and your thirst for justice. We are with you compañero Fidencio, from behind these four prison walls, we send you a combative salute.
With our voice, we invite the independent organizations and collectives to continue weaving ties of justice, and continue sowing seeds of dignified rebellion against this corrupt and oppressive system.
Free all political prisoners!
Justice for Samir!
Justice for Simón Pedro!
Free Fidencio Aldama!
Justice for all of the oppressed!
