Central Penitentiary, Oaxaca, Oaxaca, December 24, 2007.
TO THE WOMEN AND MEN WHO STRUGGLE FOR
EQUALITY, JUSTICE AND FREEDOM FOR THE
PEOPLE OF OAXACA, MEXICO AND THE WORLD
From this prison, the Political Prisoners and Prisoners of Conscience of the LOXICHA Region send fraternal greetings and a heartfelt embrace to all of you who have contributed to the struggle of the Loxicha prisoners and the prisoners imprisoned for political reasons in the state and in the country.
In spite of our unjust circumstances during these eleven long years, we tirelessly keep on struggling for our freedom with our heads held high. Now we’re spending another Christmas in this prison, far from our loved ones because neither the state nor federal government has shown any political will to resolve our longstanding problem and let us go free.
Even though we’re locked up behind four walls, we steadfastly maintain our dignity because the crimes we’re accused of are fabricated by the judicial authorities themselves. Today we wish each one of you a Merry Christmas and Prosperous New Year and hope that peace and tranquility will reign in your homes.
As everyone knows, the peaceful struggle waged in Oaxaca, Mexico and the world is due to inequality, injustice, discrimination and the imprisonment of social activists who have been deprived of their freedom for the simple act of raising our voices and demanding better living conditions.

OF THE LOXICHA REGION.
