WE DENOUNCE THE FOLLOWING: On October 23, around a thousand townspeople and neighbors in Santa Cruz Huatulco (members of the Citizen Rights Defense Committee of Santa Cruz Huatulco and the Committee for the Defense of Indigenous Rights, CODEDI), victims of a 16-million-peso fraud perpetrated by the company headed by Alfonso Mireles and former Municipal President José Humberto Cruz Ramos (2005), decided to occupy a 27-acre lot to demand the distribution of land plots and an immediate overall solution for families defrauded by tourism developers and municipal authorities.
On October 25, beginning at 3 o’clock in the afternoon, the Mexican Marines, ministerial police and riot cops besieged and harassed both the occupiers of the lot in question and their supporters. They beat and arrested 6 people for demonstrating their solidarity with the occupiers, who had continually demanded a dialogue in order to resolve a conflict that began in 2010 due to the negligence and ineptitude of the state and local governments.
