Thirty evangelical Protestants in Chiapas, Mexico were expelled by local community leaders and saw their homes and property destroyed on 4 January.
This incident continues a trend of hostilities against Protestants in rural Mexico and this village specifically.
Despite state and federal officials being notified of these illegal acts, the Mexican government continues to ignore pleas from Protestant villagers to enforce laws protecting their freedom of worship.
This situation is indicative of a rising trend of persecution against religious minorities in rural Mexico.
