Coinciding with the second anniversary of the murder of the anti-mining activist Bernardo Vásquez Sánchez, the Oaxacan Collective in Defense of Land will publicly present the report of the Civil Observance Mission: Justice for San José del Progreso.
The Mission, in which SIPAZ participated, was held in November 2012 in the community of San José del Progreso. Since the year 2006, this community has denounced human-rights violations committed by the Fortune Silver Mines company, which is implementing a mining project there.
The presentation of the report will be held on 10 March at 10am at the Institute for Graphic Arts Oaxaca (IAGO) in Oaxaca de Juárez, and thereafter starting on 12 March at 10am at the Miguel Agustín Pro Juárez Center for Human Rights (Centro Prodh) in Mexico City.
