The Network of Solidarity Decade against Impunity A.C. and the Group of Women of San Cristóbal de Las Casas-Colem on 20 December organized a press-conference in San Cristóbal de Las Casas, Chiapas, to recall that “the obligations of the Mexican State [and the Chiapas state government] in terms of the human rights of females are of no importance and observance, especially in the case of female prisoners unjustly imprisoned, living in inhuman conditions, as well as other cases of violence which remain in impunity,” as the invitation to the press-conference announced.  There were also reports on cases of feminicide in the state and on the “actions and attempts taken to attend to this grave problem of insecurity in observance of the annunciations of political transition at the end of the year 2012.”
