Mexico

     

    Their names are Héctor, Brenda Karina, Jorge Antonio, Dan Jeremeel … The list goes on and on.

    Some were last seen being taken away by military or police, like the 43 students of Ayotzinapa. Others left their homes but never arrived where they were going. All disappeared, never to be seen again.

    It’s nothing less than an epidemic. More than 35,000 people are now reported missing, at least half of them during the current government of President Enrique Peña Nieto.

    Families desperate to find their loved ones meet with indifference or hostility from officials whose ‘investigations’ are destined from the start to lead nowhere.

    Join us to hear from respected Mexican human rights expert Dr. Sergio Aguayo about the impact of Trump on politics in Mexico, and ways to address the country's ongoing human rights crisis, including the situation of migrants crossing Mexico.

    WHEN? March 9, 2017 from 7:00-8:30 PM
    WHERE? Room 2017, Dunton Tower, Carleton University - see http://carleton.ca/cie/wp-content/uploads/How-to-find-us.pdf 

    Dr Aguayo is a long time political analyst and research professor at the Center for International Studies at El Colegio de Mexico where he coordinates the Seminar on Violence and Peace. He writes a weekly column in Reforma, as well as 14 other newspapers. His 2015 book De Tlatelolco a Ayotzinapa: Las Violencias del Estado focuses on state complicity in human rights violations.

    Amnesty International, The Americas Policy Group of the Canadian Council for International Co-operation - CCIC , Nobel Women's Initiative and IPolitics invite you to join us for a policy roundtable to discuss the most pressing human rights issues in Mexico including disappearances, threats and attacks on human rights defenders and journalists, labour rights, and violence against women.
