Communist Party of Mexico

Dear Comrades,

AKEL condemns the murder of three cadres of the Communist Party of Mexico last week in the state of Guerrero. Raymundo Velazquez Flores, Samuel Vargas Ramirez and Miguel were leading members of the ‘Revolutionary League of Peasants of the South - Emiliano Zapata’ and were actively involved in the organisation and struggles of the poor peasants of the area. We express our condolences to the families of the three murdered communists and to the members of the Communist Party of Mexico.

We demand the full investigation of the crime from the government of Mexico and the punishment of the perpetrators, who brutally tortured and murdered the three fighters of the popular and agrarian movement of the country. At the same time, we expect the practical safeguard of the freedom of political action of the country’s communists.
