Mexican communists murdered

Murdering of three militants of the Communist Party of Mexico in the state of Guerrero

Today AUGUST 5, the lifeless bodies of Raymundo Velazquez Flores, Secretary General of the Regional Committee of the Communist Party of Mexico in the state of Guerrero, Samuel Vargas Ramirez, member of the Regional Committee of the PCM in the same entity and the partner Miguel; all of them leaders of the Revolutionary League of Peasants of the South – Emiliano Zapata (Larsez), were found.

The bodies of our comrades were found with gunshot wounds and signs of torture on the banks of the river of the Municipality of Coyuca de Benítez, near them the car in which they were travelling, a white Tsuru without plates with lettering of the Independent Transport Workers Coordination of the State of Guerrero (Cetig), was found charred.

Our comrades went out around 6 p.m. from Cuernavaca, Morelos, on Saturday August 3 after a meeting of the National Political Committee of the Revolutionary Left Front (FIR), in the direction of Coyuca de Benitez. Communication with them was lost after they left comrade Tomasa Vázquez Juarez in her home in that municipality.

Our comrades had to attend a meeting with peasants from Larsez on Sunday August 4 in Chilpancingo, so obviously they were intercepted on their way and subsequently were killed in a cowardly manner.

The Communist Party of Mexico through its Political Bureau, hold responsible the Federal Government of Enrique Peña Nieto of the PRI, the State Government of Angel Aguirre Rivero of the PRD and the municipal government of Ramiro Ávila Morales of the murdering of our comrades.

As we know in the state of Guerrero there are no guarantees for the political action of the communists, the revolutionaries and the social fighters. This is a direct attack from all three levels of government against the Communist Party of Mexico. Our Communist Party of Mexico and all its structures will act accordingly and swear that the murdering of our comrades will not go unpunished; they will remain in our memory as revolutionaries who worked tirelessly for the emancipation of the working class.


Our comrades, modest communists, without poses, always had in their brains the idea of the socialist revolution. Our first commitment with their exemplary lives is to stop what the government is looking for: that LARSEZ and the CPM turn headless and interrupt their organizational process in the combative and revolutionary state of Guerrero. The struggle continues, and with their example it will become stronger.

Finally, our militancy expresses its deepest condolences to the families of our comrades.
