According to the Communist Party of Mexico, two members of the Party have been detained by local police at the city of Cuernavaca. On Friday, June 30, workers and people in the town of Alpuyeca, in the state of Morelos, demonstrated against the operation of monopoly groups in the area. The local police forces tried to repress the protest.
In their effort to defend the workers and the demonstrators, two members of the Communist Party of Mexico and the Federation of Young Communists were arrested.
The comrades who are detained by police are Omar Cota, Political Secretary of the Federación de Jóvenes Comunistas (FJC) and also member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of Mexico (PCM) and Louis Bahena, members of the Regonal Committee of the PCM in Morelos.
The repression and authoritarianism of the Mexican state against the Communists shall not pass. Omar and Louis must be released immediately!
