The Movement for the Freedom of the Defenders of Water and Life of San Pedro Tlanixco, Tenango del Valle, Mexico State, denounces the sentences given to our indigenous Nahua brothers and sister, Lorenzo Sánchez Berriozábal, Marco Antonio Pérez González and Dominga González Martinez.As you remember, since 1989, San Pedro Tlanixco has been defending the water that is born from our forests. We are defending this water against the capitalist hydra, taking shape here as national and transnational flower-growing corporations in Villa Guerrero that have been protected by the bad governments. We have been defending our territory because they have imposed a private highway that goes from Tenando del Valle to Ixtapan de la Sal, causing our town to be split in half.
On April 1st, 2003, the president of the Texcaltenco river system and representative of flower-growing corporations of Villa Guerrero died due to a fall. Since this day, our community has lived through constant attacks on the part of the bad governments and the paid media that have spread the false headline that we had lynched this man. The truth is that he and his people were in our territory because they wanted to take our water. It was there when, due to not knowing the trails, he fell and lost his life.

Foster says he deliberately broke the law by turning off a valve of the Keystone pipeline in North Dakota because he felt action was necessary.
In October of last year, the group Climate Direct Action turned off a valve on the Keystone Pipeline. Last week, activist Michael Foster was convicted for being involved in the action.
If North Dakota courts, where he is being tried now, find him guilty, he could be facing up to 21 years in prison. The sentencing is set for January.
‘If we don’t stop, we can’t correct … it will be too late for this generation.’ – Michael Foster, activist
Despite that hefty prison sentence hanging over his head, the former mental health counsellor from Seattle is still speaking out because he says he wasn’t allowed to tell his full side at his trial. Continue reading Activist Facing 21 Years for Turning Off Keystone Pipeline’s Valve
