At the First National Meeting of Human Rights Defenders and Family Members of Political Prisoners and Prisoners of Conscience which took place July 24 through 26 in Mexico City, the Tlachinollan Human Rights Center of the Montaña (CDHM Tlachinollan) presented a new video documentary on the most recent cases of state repression in Guerrero.

Four cases are presented in the video:

- A confrontation between riot police and campesinos in opposition to the hydroelectric project La Parota.

- The violent eviction of students and graduates of the Normal Rural School “Raúl Isidro Burgos” in Ayotzinapa outside of the State Congress of Guerrero in the capital of Chilpancingo (November 14, 2007).

- The harrassment and incarceration of members of the Organization of the Indigenous Me’phaa People (OPIM) in the municipality of Ayutla de los Libres.

- An attempt by police forces and the Federal Investigation Agency (AFI) to dismantle Radio Ñomndaa in Xochistlahuaca (July 10, 2008).
