Faced with government warnings that they may be harmed in their attempt, spokesmen responded that they acknowledge they could be stopped in their journey, but see no other option.

They have been in Mexico since May, others almost a year, and their savings from working in Chile or Brazil are about to run out.

The decision, said their spokespersons, was made due to the lack of a response from Mexican immigration authorities to their requests for paperwork, which has kept them stranded in Chiapas for almost a year, without access to food, medical attention or a place to spend the night.

A caravan similar to the one they organized this Saturday was disbanded on Thursday, and was only a fraction of the Haitian community located in this city on the southern border of the country.
