Community organizer with the Popular Indigenous Council of Guerrero-Emiliano Zapata, Samuel Virgenio Germán, is detained then released after popular pressure in the state of Guerrero
On July 13, 2021, at approximately 10:00am, the compañero Samuel Virgenio Germán of the community of Rincon de Chautla, pertaining to the Popular Indigenous Council of Guerrero-Emiliano Zapata, was detained by ministerial police of the state of Guerrero. After various hours and thanks to the organization in our region, at around 2:00pm, we achieved his freedom.
We denounce that the harassment by state authorities continues against our communities. These types of detentions are a consequence of the false denouncements made by the paramilitary groups, Los Ardillos, and backed up by authorities of the state of Guerrero, against the communities that make up CIPOG-EZ. Meanwhile, the government knows that it is the criminal group, Los Ardillos, which kills, kidnaps, tortures, and disappears our brothers and sisters.
We demand the cancellation of the arrest warrants against us!
End the paramilitary war against the Zapatista communities of the EZLN!
End the narco-paramilitary war against the Indigenous communities of the CNI-CIG!
End the narco-paramilitary war against the communities of CIPOG-EZ!
Never more a Mexico without us!
