Mexico: Anarchist Prisoner Miguel Peralta Sentenced to 50 Years Imprisonment

Thursday, November 1st, 2018

On October 26th, our comrade Miguel Ángel Peralta was notified that the judge has found him criminally liable for the commission of the crime of attempted homicide against Eliza Zepeda Lagunas (former municipal president of Eloxochitlán and now a local member of MORENA / National Regeneration Movement for District 04 of Teotitlán, Oaxaca). The judge imposed a penalty of 50 years imprisonment against Miguel and his brother Manuel, as well as a financial penalty of 150,000 pesos compensation for damages.

For this reason, Miguel has decided to end the hunger strike that he began on October 19th, to regain his strength and to focus on continuing a second stage to obtain his freedom.

Freedom for all!

Down with the walls of the prisons!

Action in solidarity with prisoners in Eloxochitlán de Flores Magón, Oaxaca (Mexico)

Wednesday, September 5th, 2018

On August 30th, 2018, a group of comrades took the street in front of the transition house of the president-elect of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador. There, they briefly blocked traffic and showered the police, media and bystanders with flyers denouncing the judicial corruption and state repression being carried out against community members of Eloxochitlán de Flores Magón, Oaxaca. The banner blocking the highway read: Freedom to the Prisoners of Eloxochitlán de Flores Magón—Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners.

This action kicks off a series of events planned in the lead up to anarchist prisoner Miguel Peralta’s final court date on September 28th, 2018. We encourage you all to remain attentive to upcoming events and actions.

Free all prisoners! Down with the Prison Walls!
