The Autonomous Municipality of San Juan Copala emphatically denounces the MURDER of our top leader, Timoteo Alejandro Ramírez (44 years old) and his wife Cleriberta Castro (35 years old). The deplorable deed took place in the Yosoyuxi community, which is part of the Autonomous Municipality. According to witnesses’ statements, an unmarked three-ton truck that was apparently delivering merchandise stopped outside the store where the slain comrades live. An armed commando got out of the truck and executed the victims. This commando was made up of four NON-Triqui individuals. The Autonomous Municipality holds the Movement for Triqui Unification and Struggle (MULT) responsible for the crime.
Our comrade Alejandro was the guiding moral force of the Triqui community, a tireless leader for building stronger indigenous autonomy in the region, and the top leader of the Independent Movement for Triqui Unification and Struggle (MULTI).
This makes one more act of impunity that has occurred during the Ulises Ruiz Ortiz government.
The Autonomous Municipality of San Juan Copala, in conjunction with the undersigned organizations, demands JUSTICE in the face of this new attack and an END to the extreme violence now going on in the region.
No paramilitary group can control the rights of the Triqui people!
Justice and peace can only be built from below!
