(en) Czech, AFED: Passports for Zapatistas!. AF joined the open letter to the Mexican Embassy in Prague [machine translation]

Date Wed, 30 Jun 2021 09:05:33 +0300

The Mexican government is not governed by laws, but by racism - Text of the open letter: ---- We have received reports of difficulties encountered by a group of Mexican citizens from Chiapas in obtaining passports, despite having fulfilled all the legal conditions necessary to obtain a document without which it is not possible to leave the territory of the Mexican State or return to it. ---- The information available to us shows that the Secretaría de Relaciones Exterios de México (SRE, Ministry of Foreign Affairs) and the authorities under its jurisdiction reject the requests of many of these people. At the same time, their decisions do not seem to be motivated by missing documents, but on the basis of the applicants' indigenous origin. The comments of individual employees can be read in the statement quoted below[HERE], so we will not repeat them here.

We have invited these people, who are now prevented by discrimination from various places in Europe, as organizations, collectives, groups and individuals. We therefore demand that the Secretaría de Relaciones Exterios de México issue them with passports under the same conditions and at the same time interval as the law guarantees to all citizens of Mexico.

In the event that they are denied their legitimate civil right, we will demonstrate our opposition in the form of demonstrations in our cities, embassies, consulates and other places of official representation of Mexico throughout Europe. We are not indifferent to the violations of constitutional rights experienced by our Mexican, Chiapas, Indigenous and Zapatista friends. We, the undersigned, report to this and request a response via email blackseeds@riseup.net from the Mexican Embassy in Prague.
