National Day of Action for Peace in Mexico

  • Lumumba Center 939 W Capitol St Jackson, MS, 39203 United States

Join us in sending two powerful messages to Mexico: To the people of Mexico, you are not alone. To the Mexican government, the world is watching you.

On December 3rd, 2014, we will go out into the streets and demand the US government to abide by the Leahy Law and to stop military assistance to the Mexican government, which flagrantly violates human rights with total impunity! 

On September 26th and 27th in Iguala, Guerrero, 43 students of the rural teachers school "Raul Isidro Burgos" in the nearby town of Ayotzinapa, were kidnapped by local police officers with the aid of hooded men from the drug cartel "Guerreros Unidos". Another six people, including three more students of Ayotzinapa, were killed. The response of the local, state, and federal authorities has not just been mediocre and inept, but also seemingly complicit. The State’s actions show the level of corruption, incompetence, and disdain of Mexican authorities towards the many thousands of people who have been killed and disappeared. Social protests have erupted throughout Mexico, with massive demonstrations that have sparked a light for hope and justice.

Here in the United States we feel their pain and share their anger. WE ARE TIRED TOO.
