Compañeros, compañeras, our pain, rage, death and dignity now urge us to make our word known.
The Adherents to the Sixth in the community of Cruzton, municipality Venustiano Carranza, Chiapas, state the following: Last May 22, at 4:20 in the morning we were ambushed in our community cemetery by a heavily armed group from Nuevo Guadalupe Victoria, which started an armed attack that lasted four and a half hours. We had to take refuge behind the rocks in a grove of trees to protect our lives.
