This Human Rights Center expresses its outrage at the inadequate performance of the Mexican state in providing medical care to the political prisoner Alberto Patishtán Gomez (hereinafter Patishtán), who for several years has been reporting his poor state of health, and the lack of interest of the Mexican State in treating him, which has resulted in Patishtán gradually losing his eyesight.
This Human Rights Center considers unacceptable the violence exercised by the group known as “non-cooperatives,” lead by the “Army of God, Eagles' Wings” against adherents to The Other Campaign in the community of Mitzitón, San Cristóbal de Las Casas (SCLC), Chiapas; this violence was carried out in the presence of state officials and left two people with serious injuries.
