On May 28, at approximately 6:00am, a group of more than 100-armed men entered the community in resistance of El Rebollero, San Pablo Cuatro Venados, Oaxaca.

They began shooting at the community forcing the population to flee seeking safety. Afterwards, the armed men began to burn our houses and our personal things.

This attack occurs just days before the inauguration of our health center and our chapel. Two buildings which are a symbol of the reconstruction of our homes. In 2019, 500 armed men with heavy machinery entered our community destroying everything.

On previous occasions, we have alerted the three levels of government about these attacks and they have ignored us. For this, we hold responsible the state government of Alejandro Murat Hinojosa, the federal government of Andrés Manuel López Obrador, and the authorities of Cuilápam de Guerrero. We also hold responsible Flavio Sosa Villavicencio and his brother, who belong to the Morena party, for these actions and the damage caused.

Never More a Mexico Without Us!
