While the government gives speeches about freedom, our compañero remains kidnapped by the state, imprisoned in spite of of how flawed his legal process has been. For four years the illegality of the resolutions and the human rights violations in his case have been repeatedly denounced.
Yesterday, January 16th, our compañero Luis Fernando Sotelo Zambrano was notified of the ruling on his appeal filed by his defense team, Los Otros Abogadoz. The filing sought to overturn the ruling of Judge 32 of Mexico City denying amnesty to Luis Fernando, when by right he should be a recipient. The new ruling confirmed his sentence, once again, denying our compañero his freedom.
This decision does not take us by surprise. The mandate of the powerful has been clear: keep him imprisoned, trying again and again to break the morale of our compañero. However, here we continue together with Luis Fernando, shoulder to shoulder, struggling for his freedom, knowing that he is not alone and that we will not rest until we remove him from the hands of the powerful that maintain him kidnapped. We know that in this struggle we are not alone because the daily organization and solidarity from below builds the pathway to freedom.
LET THE RAGE UNITED,
LET THE WIND BLOW,
LET THE STORM INTENSIFY
