Translated by act for freedom now
Yesterday, Friday January 10, Mario was sentenced to 5 years and 9 months in prison, which he is to serve at the Youth Rehabilitation Centre of Santa Martha Acatitla (CERESOVA).
He was accused of disrupting public peace, which implies damages to property or people, ‘an affront to society’, which is absurd in Mario’s case as the judge himself acquitted him of the charge of damage because of ‘lack of evidence’. In other words there was no big damage and Mario is being punished for his political activity. We make a call for two urgent initiatives:
Meeting to decide the actions to be taken, on Sunday January 12 at Tepepan, at 4:30pm
Demo outside the Superior Court of Mexico City, on Calle Río de la Plata # 48 Col. Cuauhtemoc, on Monday January 13 at 1pm.
We ask you to express your solidarity.
Let’s destroy the prison walls!
Freedom for Mario Gonzales!
