Support for Victor Herrera

To our combative libertarian comrades:

We’d like to share some more information with you about our friend and comrade Victor Herrera. As you know, he’s still being held prisoner in the Reclusorio Sur in Mexico City. His lawyers, along with friends and comrades, have been making a big effort to gather all possible evidence to prove that Victor did not participate in the acts he’s accused of (gang robbery and property damage to the OXXO convenience store). The assault against him is intended to punish all young libertarians and social activists, and we’ve kept up a constant political struggle for his release; yet we want to urge more people to join in so that our shouts for his freedom will be loud and forceful enough to stop the repression against him. We need to reflect on what’s happening and actively show our solidarity with this struggle. Right now it’s for Victor, but next time it could be for any one of us.

GRC Communiqué demanding the freedom of Victor Herrera Govea

TO ALL LIBERTARIAN COLLECTIVES AND INDIVIDUALS,

TO THE BROADER COMMUNITY:

Last October 2, 2009, in commemoration of the 41st anniversary of the massacre and disappearance of hundreds of students in the Plaza of Three Cultures at Tlatelolco, we came out once again to demand justice and the live presentation of all those comrades who fought in those days. As part of the ongoing libertarian, anti-fascist mobilizations held in recent months in this city, we decided to march as an anarchist, libertarian block. It’s well known that now, more than ever, the libertarian movement is being criminalized and targeted by the governments imposed in our territory; even so, we joined together to participate in the protest.

We must recognize that the required measures weren’t taken to avoid the infiltration in our contingent of people who have nothing to do with our movement, including plainclothes police and shock groups made up of hired goons.
