Diego Alonso

After four months on the run, Diego was arrested on a warrant in early March 2010, after he tried to squat at a house in the Barrera neighborhood of Guadalajara, Jalisco. In October 2009, Diego was arrested with Molotov cocktails in the parking lot of the Pilgrims Pride meat company. He was released into the custody of his parents, but he "escaped."

Diego is being held at a youth detention center in Jalisco, where he will stay until trial. There is little information about his case, but he may be accused of involvement in several actions that targeted banks, slaughterhouses and other institutions. Diego is vegan.

Emmanuel Hern�ndez Hernandez

Arrested on November 23, 2009 on charges of violating the federal law against carrying explosives. In 2006 during a demonstration against the World Water Forum, Emmanuel was arrested and accused of carrying Molotov cocktails. He was sent to Mexico City's Reclusorio Norte prison. Emmanuel recently received a sentence of 4 years. He could be released on bail, but he has not been allowed to pay because the prosecutor appealed and asked a judge to lengthen the sentence.
