We have left Chiapas and we are excited to have marched to Oaxaca for which we ask the government of President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador to withdraw the National Guard to avoid confrontations, told the press Irineo Mujica member of an organization called Pueblos sin fronteras (People Without Borders).

The migrants -almost four thousand as Mujica said, and the Migration Institute less than two thousand- left yesterday Sunday morning from the Azteca neighborhood, municipality of Arriaga, Chiapas and arrived at Los Corazones, Oaxaca, where they overnight. He said that the members of this caravan remain firm in their idea of reaching Mexico City. Some human rights spokesmen accuse him of instigating among migrants the refusal to accept the facilities offered to them by the government such as residence permits.

Mujica himself declared again today, as if his voice was the only one in the contingent, that they are willing to do whatever it takes to arrive and we are not going to accept any document offered by the government.

He affirmed without providing evidence that those who are offering them a visa are tricking them because they are forcing them to accept a document that is not useful to them, since it does not give them permission to travel anywhere in the country.
