We apologize to all citizens for the effects that we are causing with the blockades
“We apologize to all citizens for the effects that we are causing with the blockades, but we have no ultra alternative for the government to turn to see us,” he added. He pointed out that the only thing they are asking is that the federal and state governments comply with the requests of the popular movement of Chiapas, as well as what was signed in minutes of work between the CNTE and the President of the Republic.
