Christians in Chiapas state, Mexico are suffering discrimination and persecution. There has been a shortage of water in the Mexican Christian community after local authorities decided to cut off their supply of potable water.

Reports claim that the local authorities took out the water supply because the Christian community held a Roman Catholic fiesta in honor of a Catholic saint and refused to pay the contribution being asked from them.

The Mexican government has been ignoring the pleas of the Christian minorities for protection of their freedom of worship.

More than 70 cases of religious persecution in Mexico against minority Christian communities, involving between 20–100 victims, have been reported by the International Christian Concern (ICC), according to Christian Today. The community has experienced unjustified attacks because of their refusal to renounce their Catholic faith.
