Solidarity against repression in San Gregorio Atlapulco, Xochimilco, Mexico
From the Annual Global Meeting of the Stay Grounded Network, the Coordinadora de Pueblos y Organizaciones del Oriente del Estado de México en Defensa de la Tierra, el Agua y su Cultura (CPOOEM) organizational effort member of the National Indigenous Congress (CNI) and international organizations, we express our indignation and condemn the repression yesterday Friday, December 2, 2022 by the federal government of Andrés Manuel López Obrador and the Mexico City government of Claudia Sheinbaum Pardo through military and paramilitary shock groups to the original people of San Gregorio Atlapulco, Xochimilco that like Milpa Alta, Tláhuac, Xoco, Contreras and other communal settlements in the south of the Valley of Mexico Basin, oppose the destruction of their inherited ancestral natural wealth, the advance of chaotic urbanization and the plundering of sacred water for capitalist real estate projects and foreign companies, through the imposition of false consultations such as the one they intend to carry out today to simulate the supposed approval in a short time of a Land Use Plan for Mexico City contrary to Life and to the global efforts against the Climate Emergency, bypassing the law and the legal protections won by the peoples. We call for international solidarity to widely disseminate that in Mexico, the war of extermination against the peoples, does not cease.
STOP THE REPRESSION, INTIMIDATION AND THREATS OF THE GOVERNMENT OF MEXICO AGAINST ORIGINAL PEOPLES, INDIGENOUS COMMUNITIES AND COMMUNAL VILLAGES!
OUT WITH THE MILITARIES AND PARAMILITARIES OF MORENA FROM SAN GREGORIO ATLAPULCO XOCHIMILCO!
NO TO THE NEOLIBERAL CAPITALIST MEGAPROJECTS OF LÓPEZ OBRADOR and CLAUDIA SHEINBAUM!
RESPECT THE AUTONOMY AND ASSEMBLIES OF THE PEOPLES OF THE SOUTHERN VALLEY OF MEXICO BASIN!
