Help free jailed activists in Mexico
As governments and their police forces continue to crack down on resource rights activists, Grassroots International’s allies are more frequently finding themselves in serious danger, often criminalized for organizing for justice. That is the case once again for Sara Lopez and Joaquín Aguilar from Campeche, Mexico. On July 10th, Sara and Joaquín were arrested, along with three other members of the Mexican Alliance for People’s Self-Determination (AMAP). In addition, twenty-eight other members of their community face possible arrest.
The arrest and imprisonment of Sara and Joaquín resulted from unfounded and politically motivated criminal charges. Use this webform to tell Mexican authorities to respect human rights and stop the unjust prosecution of peaceful activists.
