ECVC stands in solidarity and support with Daniel Pascual, member of the Comité de Unidad Campesina (CUC). The criminalisation of which he is victim must be seen for what it is: one of the many examples of the ongoing persecution of the indigenous and peasant communities of the region. Ricardo Méndez Ruiz accuses him of defamation and slander, under the ruse of counter-terrorism initiatives which are in fact encouraged by private industries and attempt to stop activist action whilst continuing to give impunity to perpetrators of war crimes and crimes against humanity.

 

ECVC denounces this behaviour and urges all and any allies, friends and social organisations to show solidarity with Daniel by sending a message to mariana.ixil@gmail.com.
