(en) Mexico, Oaxaqua: New arrest warrant issued against anarchist Miguel Peralta Betanzos By A.N.A. (ca, de, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]

Date Thu, 8 Sep 2022 08:29:03 +0300

Miguel Peralta Betanzos, a former political prisoner and anarchist, is under threat of re-arrest after being released from his conviction and having survived imprisonment for about five years. ---- Miguel Peralta is from the community of Eloxochitlán de Flores Magón, in Sierra Oaxaqueña, Mexico. Once again Miguel is the target of the repressive policy of state representatives in his region, who want Miguel to return to the prison, which was forged, and from which Miguel left a few months ago. Miguel, and thirty-four others, seven of whom are still in prison (LINK), was persecuted, prosecuted and imprisoned in Oaxaca, on charges of murder and attempted murder against a family of oligarchs in his community. Today, this family is involved in the highest spheres of state and national politics, being active members of the political party in power.

At the same time that the family ascends to power, and after two years of being released, in March 2022 a new hearing reopens the case and issues a new arrest warrant against Miguel, this time with a sentence of fifty years of imprisonment. chain. Conviction that legally and politically was dismantled, which resulted in Miguel's release in October 2019.

With this act, the party that maintains power in Mexico reaffirms the political persecution being exercised against Miguel and other indigenous people who defend their own forms of organization against the system of political parties and groups of community leaders in Oaxaca, who have the complicity of the state and national justice system, which have already taken four years from Miguel's life, and now want to imprison him for another fifty years.

It is worth mentioning that Miguel, a fellow anarchist, after leaving prison continued to denounce the fabrication of crimes and the unjust imprisonment of his seven fellow prisoners in Eloxochitlán, and others who still have prison orders against them. He was not silenced by the prison system, nor did he return to his home to have a peaceful life and ignore the situation that his companions are going through. For us, this is the clear reason why the government considers it "necessary" and pedagogical for Miguel to return to jail.

We must also remember that prolonged incarceration is precisely a strategy for States to fight their enemies. In the case of Mexico, incarceration is clearly aimed at depriving of freedom and, therefore, of their actions, on the one hand, the defenders of the territory and the community bond, and, on the other hand, the women who fight against the Patriarchal State. The persecution of anarchists is a worldwide scenario, and is reflected in high convictions, as in the case of fellow anarchists in Italy, who received a non-existent sentence of life imprisonment, or the case of Gabriel Pombo da Silva, who was imprisoned for having been considered not having "fulfilled" its debt to the Spanish state, to mention just a few cases.

That is why we are calling for the solidarity that has accompanied us over the last few years to speak out against the sentence of fifty in prison and the persecution of Miguel Peralta by the ruling party, and the possible new arrest, as well as for freedom of the seven political prisoners in Eloxochitlán and for the end of the arrest warrants against the victims of this conflict.

We ask that you be aware and attentive to any attempt to arrest or damage the integrity of Miguel, his family and his lawyers.

In view of the context of impunity and criminalization that exists in Oaxaca and in the country as a whole, we hold Elisa Zepeda Lagunas, her father Manuel Zepeda Cortés and their party group responsible for the political persecution and acts of violence and repression against Miguel Peralta . This condemnation reflects the greed of those who persecute those who fight, but it also ignites our anger and courage not to give up!

For the end of political persecution!

For the destruction of prison walls!

Political prisoners on the streets! #FreeNow
