Mexico D.F., May 10, 2016 – Friends and comrades, we send you warm greetings and solidarity from the Mesoamerican Initiative of Women Human Rights Defenders (IM-Defensoras), made up of more than 750 women defenders in Honduras, Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua.
We are with you in your tireless quest for truth and justice over the disapperance of your children, and we suport your demand for an immediate search for those that you never stop missing.
We are here to tell you that you are women human rights defenders and that your work is fundamental in putting an end to impunity and the crisis of human rights violations in Mexico.
We know you are faced with painful, atrocious omissions and negligence by authorities in a corrupt State where impunity reigns, and that little space exists for expecting the diligent, human, responsable response that you deserve from these authorities.
But in this small space, we join with you in your suffering and suport your demands. Like milions more, we echo the need to do away with the impunity and indolence that obliges us to live in a country where we are separated from our children and no one does a thing about it. Likewise, we demand security guarantees for you in this crucial work of defending human rights.
From different points in Mesoamerica, we stand with you today in raising the living demand through our political action and in our hearts for all of our children to come back home.
