The Federal Public Ministry could not prove their claim that the comrade is drug dealer, so the judge had to change the charge of crimes against health in selling arrangement to simple possession of narcotics, crime considered not serious so a bail was set.
This morning the bail required for release of comrade Yorch was paid. Now it’s about time to leave the maximum security prison of Hermosillo. The process continuous, although now he will face it outside the prison.
Surely this shows clearly the gross farce that the State intends to create by arresting Yorch and although it seems that they failed to build it they continue in their efforts hand to hand with the mass media: today newspapers announced that the PGR will appeal this decision and maybe our comrade will not be released
We are not surprised. We know that the campaign against the anarchist movement will continue and we know that one of the goals of this campaign is to evict the Okupa Che squat.
In response we can only continue to extend the solidarity!

From ABC Mexico:
On the night of Wednesday, February 24, Jorge Emilio Muñoz Esquivel, George or “Yorsh” was arrested outside the university campus in Mexico City. Then he was accused of drug dealing by the Attorney General of the Republic (PGR). The official version was repeated ad nauseam by all government media (starting with La Jornada and ending the UNAM’s own dean’s office). When Jorge briefly left university campus that night to accompany some friends who were leaving, he was not carrying anything: no backpack, probably no sweater or jacket, because he planned to return quickly. The so-called “load” of drugs the PGR charged him with, either never existed or was planted on him on the way to their offices after being kidnapped.
Jorge is not a university student. He is neither an academic nor administrative employee of the UNAM. He has no “account number”, receives no scholarship or paycheck every payday.
He does not belong to any professors’ association nor is he an enrolled researcher with any level of the National System of Researchers (SNI). He does not got to any classroom, cubicle or institute. He doesn’t check a timecard, nor does he have a union. He does not pay any fees to the Office of University Heritage or to the Board of Trustees for the use of a vending stand. He is not the beneficiary of any university, local or federal government program, nor is he backed by any official NGOs. (more…)
