A novel intervention by international experts in Mexico invigorated the work of human rights organizations to fight against systemic impunity in the country, according to Gabriela Kletzel and Angel Gabriel Cabrera Silva.
In the midst of a wave of unpunished violence against journalists and human rights defenders, it has come to light that the Mexican government is running surveillance and spying on members of the press, activists and political parties. Human rights organizations are calling for an investigation of these acts by a panel of independent experts.
Carlos Beristain and Claudia Paz y Paz, members of the Interdisciplinary Group of Independent Experts (GIEI) that investigated the disappearance of the 43 students from Ayotzinapa, visited Argentina.
Mexico’s human rights crisis and what occurred in Ayotzinapa were presented at the UN Human Rights Council.
