Brothers and sisters of Mexico and the world:
We’re sending you all the information we have as of now. On Thursday, October 15, 2009, our comrade Ignacio del Valle told us in a brief phone call that he and other comrades are on hunger strike in the maximum security prison where he has been kidnapped by the Mexican state.
This extreme measure is being taken to demand an end to the subhuman prison conditions to which our political prisoners are subjected in that dungeon: physical attacks, degradation, threats, humiliation, unjustifiable punishment, suspension of phone calls, suspension of visits, destruction of mail, theft of art and design materials and other measures characteristic of fascist regimes. The comrade has not been allowed to re-establish communications with his family members or lawyers.
We hold Felipe Calderón Hinojosa, Enrique Peña Nieto, and the prison warden responsible for the physical integrity, health and life of our political prisoners Felipe Álvarez, Héctor Galindo and Ignacio del Valle.
THE LAND IS NOT FOR SALE, LOVE IT AND DEFEND IT!
ZAPATA LIVES, THE STRUGGLE CONTINUES!
