Chilpancingo, Guerrero— The group, Armed Revolutionary Forces-People’s Liberation (Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionaras-Liberación del Pueblo (FAR-LP)), emerged in the Costa Chica and La Montaña de Guerrero Región, issued a call to take up arms in response to the violence perpetrated by the federal and state governments against society.
In a communiqué that was distributed to reporters on Monday, the new armed organization-that doesn’t have a history of their operation- critiques the return of the PRI through the first year of Enrique Peña Nieto.

The FAR-LP claim that Peña is the continuation of former president
Carlos Salinas de Gortari, who is described as “terrible” and the “main
looter of the country” because “he benefited” entrepreneurs such as Carlos Slim
and Ricardo Salinas Pliego, by providing them concessions from the
telecommunications system, who’ve become moguls by the scheme of the
privatization of public services.

The communiqué refers to “the systematic theft” of Peña contrasts with the situation in which thousands of homeless are living because of the severe rains caused by Hurricane Manuel and accuses the governor Ángel Aguirre Rivero as being “greedy” because his officials profit from the needs of victims.
“What else are we to expect from these governments who slaughter us. The war against the people, as government policy, has unleashed a repressive offense based on the counterinsurgency against social activists; grassroots organizations; human rights defenders; environmentalists; journalists; community leaders; women’s rights activists; student representatives and all those who raise their voice and defend the people. They become an enemy of this government.”
They therefore urge the people to:
“Exercise your right to justice, (because) a crime against humanity will not go unpunished, let us fulfill the people’s justice."
The communiqué is signed by the general command of the FAR-LP, composed of the commanders: Emilio, Camilo and Esperanza, and concludes with the slogan: “With the people’s war, the people will be victorious.”
