Report of actions: 5 years #DrSernasPresentaciónConVida

Rally, 11th May, 2023, Palace of Ignominy

To the working class and the laborers

To the poor peasantry and the native oppressed peoples

To the broad popular masses of Oaxaca, Mexico and the world

The last 10th May was the 5th anniversary of the forced disappearance of our comrade, Doctor Ernesto Sernas García. During this time the family of the comrade and several democratic organizations, we maintained the demand of his presentation with life and punish for the guilty ones. Are five years of omissions, acquiescence, complicity and delays by the General Attorney of the state of Oaxaca and the Commissions of State and Federal search; five years of excuses, promises and institutional speeches that contrasts with the official numbers of disappearances, more than 105 thousand disappeared people in the whole country.

The reality is clear, since the beginning of the militarization of the country in 2006, until now (this means, from the six years of Felipe Calderón to the government of Andrés Manuel López Obrador), there is a war against the people, which goals keep being the dismantling of the popular movements and other process of communitarian resistance, the division of the people’s forces, the separation of the national territory and the reinforcement of the imperialist chains of dominance – mainly Yankee – over our country, deepening the semi-colonial situation here.

To these forced disappearances, and the clandestine graves which are covering the national territory, we can add the murders of those who struggle, the assassination of women, political imprisonements for activists and forced intern displacement for whole communities. This is not a reactionary war? It is not obvious that the victims are from the poor people?
