Running for Justice in Mexico
£2,063 of £5,000 goal
We are JMN Team!
A warm hello from team Justice Mexico Now (JMN). Your support is hugely important to help free an entire country from shocking human rights abuses.
That country is Mexico and it is currently at its worst:
*You might have heard of 43 disappeared students from Ayotzinapa, Guerrero. Well a year and a half later they're still missing. The government keeps ducking away and refusing to meaningfully engage with the independent group of expert investigators appointed by the Inter American Commission for Human Rights.
* Did you read those stories about murdered journalists that made headlines in the UK? Well unfortunately they are more common than you think, especially in the state of Veracruz - just not all of them get internationally reported.
* Did you hear about the president's ostentatious mansion, built by the same developers who have won the biggest infrastructure projects in the country since Peña Nieto came to power? Well, the investigative journalists who uncovered the corruption scandal were silenced, while the president and his wife were 'found squeaky clean'.
As a UK based organization, JMN works to raise awareness of the Mexican situation. We also function as a channel for fellow Mexico based organizations, experts, victims and thought leaders to reach out to British institutions and public opinion. This will make the movement stronger, louder and impossible to ignore. But we need your help. All your donations will be used to increase pressure on the Mexican government to finally be accountable, responsible and respectful of its citizens' rights. Also, raise public awareness of the human rights situation in Mexico by all avenues open to us and support the parents of the disappeared students.
