[05-02-2009] Call for a action day for the political prisoners of the
Magonist Zapatist Alliance

To the civil society organizations
To the peoples of the world
To the alternative media of dignified information
To all solidal and good-hearted people

On Saturday, January 31, at 6:00 p.m. a heavily armed commando unit of
the Oaxaca state police went into the San Pedro Pochutla prison and
took our indigenous comrade and political prisoner Abraham Ramírez
Vásquez away in a white van with no license plates to an unknown

Abraham and two other indigenous men, Juventino and Noel García Cruz,
have been held prisoner since January 15, 2005, under the direct
orders of the murderer Ulises Ruiz Ortiz (URO). Our comrades’ crime
was defending their forests and their traditional practices and
customs. For more than 4 years, the URO government has been unable to
prove that they committed the crimes they are accused of, and
accordingly, they have not been sentenced. Our comrades are members of
the Committee for the Defense of Indigenous Rights (CODEDI) of
Santiago Xanica, a member organization of the Magonista-Zapatista
Alliance (AMZ), the Popular Assembly of the Peoples of Oaxaca (APPO),
and adherent to the Other Campaign.

It’s important to note that Abraham Ramírez is a man of deep
libertarian and human convictions, which have motivated him more than
once, even from inside the prison, to struggle against the prison
authorities for prisoners’ rights.

During all these years, Abraham has stayed in contact and written
letters encouraging the people of Oaxaca to resist and not to allow
their dignity to be trampled on by the killer who misgoverns this
state. Prison bars have not been able to silence his rebellious voice,
and he and theother two comrades held prisoner with him have sent
letters and greetings to several different events initiated by the
Other Campaign.

Abraham is also directly involved in the organization of a popular
kitchen inside the Pochutla prison due to the fact that the prisoners
have no dining room in this prison. This activity has lead to
harassment, hostility, and acts of aggression against him by prison
authorities. The man to be held responsible for these aggressions is
the director of the penitentiary, Juan Noel Ramirez Medina, who
directly followed the orders of URO.

Thanks to a call that Abraham claimed to do himself, sunday the 1st of
February at twelve we were told that our comrade was in Miahuatlan
jail, in Oaxaca. This jail is mostly full of prisoners connected to
the narcotraffic. We know that some of these prisoners got order to
harrass, molest and intimidate our comrade Abraham.


We call to the people of Mexico, to the civil society organizations,
to the peoples of the world, to all solidal and good-hearted people
for the organization of a:


These days can be either counter-information days or action days for
the pressing on public opinion: what to do is a choice of whom wants
to solidarize with this struggle.

We ask you to call and write to the (bad) institutions asking for
freedom for our comrades from AMZ: Abraham Ramirez Vasquez, Juventino
GarciaCruz, Noel Garcia Cruz, writing down every name so that each of
them knows that they are not alone, we are not alone and we struggle
day afterday for their freedom.

Proposal for a message, from CODEDI-XANICA

send a copy of your message also to: codedi98@???

We heard the news of the violation of human rights by the illegitimate
government of Ulises Ruiz Ortiz towards members and communities of the
Xanica Committee for the Defence of Indigenous Rights (Comité por la
Defensa de los Derechos Indígenas de Santiago Xanica , CODEDI –
XANICA) through menaces, persecutions and isolation, unjustified
relocations of the prisoners and aggressions, mostly towards:

Abraham Ramírez Vásquez, Noel García Cruz y Juventino García Cruz

political prisoners since january 2005.

We strongly reccomend that Abraham Ramírez Vásquez moves back to
Pochutla penitentiary, because he has the right to see his family and
he is not a dangerous criminal but a political prisoner.

We also think that the director of Pochutla penitentiary, Juan Noel
Ramírez Medina, must be removed from his office being a direct actor
of this human rights violation, carried out towards Abraham Ramírez
Vásquez, Noel García Cruz e Juventino García Cruz.

We are worried about this situation, it represents an escalation of
violence towards all members of CODEDI – XANICA.

Hoping that this attacks to human rights of indigenous people of
Xanica stop, and that this state of impunity comes to an end, we will
keep attention to every future event.
