Mexico: Atenco campesinos march for political prisoners

Followers of the People’s Front in Defense of the Land (FPDT) from the central Mexican village of San Salvador Atenco marched and blocked the Texcoco-Lecheria federal highway to demand the liberation of 31 of their comrades from Altiplano and Santiaguito prisons in the state of Mexico. The group of campesinos was led by Maria Antonia Trinidad Ramirez, wife of FPDT director Ignacio Del Valle, one of the prisoners at Altiplano. (La Jornada, March 24)
