Three Months Of Occupation: No Surrender And No Defeat!

Three months after the occupation of the Japanese ambassador's residence in Lima, the situation remains virtually unchanged. The government doesn't seem to desire a peaceful solution, in fact Fujimori continues to toy with the idea of a military solution. This endangers the lives of the people in the residence, and even more it threatens the lives of the hundreds, the thousands of political prisoners in Peru's jails. This third month coincides with a Day of Solidarity for political prisoners all across the world on March 18th. Voz Rebelde is in solidarity with all political prisoners around the world, and we call on all revolutionary and progressive solidarity movements to mobilize for FREEDOM FOR ALL POLITICAL PRISONERS! The Fujimori dictatorship is preventing a political and peaceful solution to the crisis which resulted from the residence occupation, instead it is creating the necessary conditions for a violent end which would sacrifice the lives of its own political, military, and economic partners. Therefore, we are calling on the international solidarity to organize demonstrations and mobilizations in front of Peruvian embassies and consulates. The goal should be to demand a political solution to the conflict which includes FREEDOM FOR ALL POLITICAL PRISONERS. We have published a list of prisoners who are ill. Under these difficult conditions, the political prisoners who are in the worst conditions re-started their hunger strike on February 25th. We are very concerned, because we know what the situation of malnutrition is like which these prisoners are already experiencing. So this hunger strike will certainly have serious consequences for the lives and health of the prisoners. Despite a ban on visits and a tightening of the prison conditions, the prisoners are showing that they have NEITHER SURRENDERED NOR BEEN DEFEATED, and that...THE STRUGGLE CONTINUES!
