An answer from Mexico

As commented in the last issue of our bulletin, we addressed a letter to the Government of Michoacan, Mexico, to inquire on the death of the peasant activist Alberto Alonso Salmeron. By means of a fax sent on August 19 we have been informed by the government that the policeman Juan Equihua Ortiz is being prosecuted for his suspected responsibility concerning this murder.
