We demand the appearance of a living Carlos René Román Salazar !

To whom it may concern: We thank you in advance for the publication of this letter, which is directed to C. Felipe Calderón and Gabino Cué, President of Mexico and Governor of Oaxaca, respectively.

The organizations, unions, churches, academics, and people who have signed this document ask for your immediate intervention to achieve the appearance of a living professor Carlos René Román Salazar. He left his house in Villa Los Laureles in Santa Cruz Xoxocotlan in his gray Mazda-CX7 wagon, with license plates TWS4400. The last news of his was through a message, sent to one of his colleagues around 8:00 pm, March 14, 2011, which told of his location as he drove to a work meeting.

On March 16 the vehicle of professor Carlos René was found in a State Government-owned holding lot for vehicles, in San Jacinto Amilpas. Police moved the car from the railroad tracks; they report having done it at 6:50 AM on March 15. However, upon demanding more information, the Oaxaca government said it didn’t know about the case, despite having gotten the vehicle the day before.

The disappeared teacher is part of the union-educational structure of the Section (Local) 22 of the SNTE, a member of a collective of teachers and indigenous organization that demand the autonomy and reconstitution and free association of peoples, demands for which it has always been accused of being radical and rebellious. For us, this disappearance is a political act.

We lament that in spite of a government with different initials from the sinister and criminal PRI, nothing changes with respect to the violation of Human Rights in Oaxaca. If the government doesn’t solve this problem, it will show that it doesn’t deserve the trust of its citizens.


Sincerely,

The Undersigned

C. Director/a: Agradeceremos la publicación de la presente dirigida a C. Felipe Calderón y Gabino Cué,Presidente de México y Gobernador de Oaxaca respectivamente. Las organizaciones, sindicatos, iglesias, académicos y personas firmantes del documento solicitamos su inmediata intervención para lograr la aparición con vida del Prof. Carlos René Román Salazar. El salió de su casa en Villa Los Laureles de Santa Cruz Xoxocotlan a bordo de su vagoneta gris MAZDA-CX7, placas TWS4400. La última noticia suya fue mediante mensaje, enviado a una de sus colegas cerca de las 20 horas del 14 de Marzo de 2011, e informaba su ubicación mientras conducía a una reunión de trabajo.El día 16 de Marzo se ubicó el vehículo del profesor Carlos René en el encierro de vehículos de San Jacinto Amilpas, propiedad del Gobierno del Estado. Los policías que trasladaron el carro desde las vías del tren, reportan haberlo hecho a las 6:50 AM del 15 de Marzo, sin embargo el gobierno de Oaxaca dijo no saber del caso al demandársele información, pese a tenerla desde un día antes.El profesor hoy desaparecido es parte de la estructura sindical-educativa de la sección 22 del SNTE, miembro de uno de los colectivos de profesores y organización indígena que reivindican la autonomía, reconstitución y libre asociacion de los pueblos; por lo cual siempre han sido acusado de rebelde y radical. Su desaparición para nosotros es de eminente carácter político. Lamentamos que pese a un gobierno de distintas siglas al tenebroso y criminal PRI, nada cambie respecto a la violación de los Derechos Humanos en Oaxaca. Si el actual gobierno no soluciona de fondo esta problemática, mostrara que no merece la confianza de sus ciudadanos. Atentamente:
