The crime situation in Mexico
But as local and international human-rights organizations like Amnesty International have reported for decades, Mexico is a country in which non-violent political organizers are frequently imprisoned, tortured, kidnapped or killed by paramilitaries often linked to corrupt government officials.
On September 26, 2014, elements of the Mexican state revealed their criminality in a particularly horrifying event when local police forces attacked a group of students from the teachers' college in Ayotzinapa, Guerrero, killing 6 people and "disappearing" 43 others who are now presumed dead.
The Make Mexico Safe Campaign aims to challenge the silencing of this reality and push the Mexican and Canadian governments to face these injustices and restore justice. Sign the petition and join us in the many activities we've programmed!
