Sisters, brothers, compañeras and compañeros, I send you a combative salute from my trench of struggle and resistance.

From behind these four walls, I raise my voice, from the bitter absence caused by these walls.

Beyond the consultation arranged by the Mexican government, I demand justice for the following:

  • All the different victims of the state
  • All those assassinated
  • All those disappeared
  • All those who are missing someone
  • All those who are searching for someone they lost
  • All the victims of Line 12
  • All the mothers and fathers of missing companerxs
  • All the political prisoners
  • All the Indigenous prisoners

To those who are victims of injustice caused by the Mexican state, victims of the abuses, like territorial dispossession to impose megaprojects.

We as a people have shouted: freedom, truth, and justice. The shout of a bonfire in the middle of the night, the bonfire of justice.

We stand in solidarity with all the victims of injustice, because their pain is our pain.

Long Live Samir!

Long Live Pedro Simón!


Marcelino Ruiz Gómez
