July 4, 2020

sinembarg@Sinembargo

On July 1st in an online transmission, the report “Proposal of alternative routes to detention for the migrant population and asylum seekers in Mexico during the Covid-19 pandemic” was presented. In the event which was coordinated by the University Seminar for Studies on Internal Displacement, Migration, Exile and Repatriation of the UNAM, representatives from OXFAM Mexico, the International Detention Coalition, the Fray Matias de Cordova Center for Human Rights on the southern border, and Al Otro Lado Tijuana on the northern border participated.

The report reveals the conditions of risk of contagion and violation of rights faced by thousands of migrants in Mexico and calls on the responsible authorities and control and surveillance bodies to act urgently in order to guarantee that migrants in Mexico have access to their rights.

The report also emphasizes that children continue to be victims of arrests: “We are particularly concerned about the presence of thousands of accompanied children and adolescents, whose best interests are also permanently omitted in the considerations of the Mexican authorities.”

The report, backed by more than 40 civil society organizations, proposes 11 minimum lines of action for the implementation of emergency sanitary measures with the population on the move in the country, in order to reduce the risks of transmission of the virus in this sector, as well as for the officials who serve them and for the communities that host them.

In the presentation, it was repeatedly emphasized that it is not a matter of implementing a different policy but of ensuring that Mexico meets its responsibilities, which derive from international conventions that it has ratified.

National/International: CNI Groups Organize as USMCA Comes into Effect

July 4, 2020

imagen-477x640

At the end of June, before the imminent entry into effect of the new free trade agreement between Mexico, the United States and Canada (USMCA), the Metropolitan Anticapitalist and Antipatriarchal Coordination and the Indigenous Council of Government (CIG) of the National Indigenous Congress (CNI) called for a series of protest activities that will include: a virtual march “Against USMCA! No to the New Trade Agreement between the US, Canada and Mexico!”, On July 1st; a virtual Forum “Analysis and Perspectives: a Comparative Framework of NAFTA-1994 and its Contributions to Social Inequalities”, on July 16th; and a public presentation of the legal resources presented before national and international bodies against megaprojects, on July 30th and 31st.

On July 1st, the day the new trade agreement came into force, the Assembly of Indigenous Peoples of the Isthmus in Defense of Land and Territory (APIIDTT), also part of the CNI, published a statement denouncing that this type of agreements “cement the legal frameworks to use force by law in the imposition of megaprojects in Mexico, as well as a whole series of policies, laws and reforms that violate the human rights of indigenous peoples and the Mexican people.”

It declared that the wave of violence that plagues the Isthmus of Tehuantepec is “linked to the imposition of megaprojects and extractivist policies of the Mexican government”, in particular the Trans-Systemic/Interoceanic Corridor-Train, “a historic project that since the mid-19th century has been proposing using the geostrategic position of the Mexican Isthmus as a commercial node for global trade, this as part of the expansionist project of the US, which, by not achieving its objective in Mexico, gained control over the Panama Canal, a project that is currently obsolete compared to the demand from this rampant global market.”

It warned about the fact that “the Mexican Isthmus is seen as the primary node in these treaties, and with the discourse of emerging from the economic crisis exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, national and international pressure is created in our region by capital to streamline the works and construction of this Trans-Systemic/Interoceanic Corridor-Train from the port of Coatzacoalco, Veracruz to the port of Salina Cruz, Oaxaca, interconnected with Section 1 of the Maya Train, passing through the new Dos Bocas refinery and extending from Salina Cruz to Tapachula, Chiapas, to consolidate an energy, rail, port and industrial corridor, militarizing and reordering the entire south-southeast of Mexico and placing the new border with the US on the Tehuantepec Isthmus.”

Given this, the APIIDTT made a “call to organization, to resistance and to fight for the life and future of coming generations. The Isthmus is Ours, not the companies, nor the governments, it is of the indigenous and Afro-descendant peoples, it is of the Mexican people and of any person who decides to defend it, take care of it, and respect it.”

National/International: USMCA Comes into Effect with Mechanisms for Internet Censorship and Criminalization of Digital Locks Evasion

July 3, 2020

TmecDigital@Chamber of Deputies, Mexico

The new trade agreement between Mexico, the United States and Canada, USMCA, entered into force on July 1st, 2020, which has led to new reforms in Mexican legislation. Under the hashtag #NiCensuraNiCandados, civil society organizations have expressed concern about the new digital laws, considering them a serious threat to human rights, specifically the right to freedom of expression. They also denounce that they put people’s security and privacy at risk.

The new reforms of the Federal Copyright Law implies “a private censorship mechanism known as “notification and withdrawal.” If a person alleges that a content or publication violates their copyright, Internet service providers must remove it, without providing evidence of the infringement and without the order of a judicial authority”, explained the Director of R3D, Digital Rights Defense Network, during a webinar on June 25th.

“The mechanism of “notification and withdrawal” has been used to remove content and information of public interest, violating the right to freedom of expression of the person who publishes the information, as well as the right of people to know about relevant events in a democratic society democratic”, a bulletin, signed by several organizations, published on the page of Articulo 19 on June 17th points out, in which they ask the Mexican government to protect the public interest and human rights.

Other reforms in the Federal Penal Code “contemplate sanctions of up to ten years in prison for evading technological protection measures. These measures, also called “digital locks,” are imposed by hardware and software manufacturers to prevent access, copying, or modification of information contained in a device or system”, R3D reports.

Despite these questions, on June 29th and 30th, these reforms were approved by both the Chamber of Deputies and the Senate of the Republic.

In view of this, more than 30 civil organizations condemned these reforms for considering them to be in violation of the Constitution and for violating human rights. They demanded the National Commission for Human Rights (CNDH) and urged legislators to take steps due to unconstitutionality.

National: Over 100 Deaths from COVID-19 in Mexican Prisons

July 3, 2020

EbyjA35WoAIGZf8@AsíLegal

At the end of June, several sources reported an alarming increase in infections and deaths from COVID-19 in prisons in Mexico, with 23 states of the country presenting cases.

The organization AsíLegal reported, through the COVID-19 Penitentiary Map, that up to that date they had already registered 718 people deprived of their liberty and 119 custodians confirmed cases, as well as 102 deaths in the prison population and 27 in prison staff. It warned of a “continuous increase” since the start of the pandemic, due to the lack of measures in the prison system to prevent outbreaks.

The same organization also recorded 16 violent incidents in prisons in the country with causes related to the health emergency: three in Chiapas, two in CDMX, Colima and Edomex, and with an incident in Guanajuato, Tabasco, Oaxaca, Puebla, Michoacan, Chihuahua and Veracruz.

AsíLegal also reported that 3,625 releases were granted, a figure that “increases slowly despite the mechanisms for early release of the prison population at risk or with the recently approved Amnesty Law.”

It reiterated that it is still urgent to reverse the conditions of overcrowding, and sanitation in the prison system. It also urged the authorities to redouble efforts in favor of this population and to seek measures that may allow a new, safe normality.

For its part and according to its count, the National Human Rights Commission (CNDH) confirmed that it has registered 656 confirmed coronavirus cases, 252 suspects and 103 deaths. Despite the slight difference with the AsíLegal data, the figure shows an acceleration in the lethality caused by the virus, as just two weeks earlier the number of deaths was 68.

Guerrero/National: “Important Steps on the Route to Know the Truth of what Happened” in Ayotzinapa Case

July 3, 2020

índice@Tlachinollan

The arrest of Jose Angel Casarrubias, alias “El Mochomo”, leader of Guerreros Unidos, a criminal group implicated in the disappearance of the 43 students from the Ayotzinapa Normal Rural School in Iguala in September 2014, generated expectations of finding key information on the whereabouts of the student teachers and towards the clarification of the case.

Vidulfo Rosales Sierra, lawyer for the relatives of the 43, stated that “when the events occurred, Jose Angel Casarrubias was the main leader of the Guerreros Unidos crime group. He directed, ordered, and all the evidence gathered indicates that he was the one in charge of the criminal group, which is why he has inside information on the whereabouts of the 43 students.” The lines of investigation suggest that Guerreros Unidos was protecting the municipal president of Iguala, Jose Luis Abarca, who had given orders to proceed against the 43 student teachers. However, Rosales recalled before the media that several of the detainees in the case have been released, a situation that could be repeated in this latest arrest when on July 1st, a federal judge ordered the release of Casarrubias based on technical rigor over the evidence presented by the then Attorney General of the Republic (PGR) in 2014.

Regarding the detention, the ProDH Center stated that “since he was a fugitive since 2014, it is essential that his collaboration with the investigation of the victims’ whereabouts be encouraged and that the links of his family and his criminal organization with the security forces of the three levels of government continue to be investigated.”

For its part, the La Montaña Tlachinollan Human Rights Center acknowledged that the arrest of Jose Angel Casarrubias, the arrest warrant against Tomas Zeron and the 46 arrest warrants issued against Guerrero officials, advances presented by Prosecutor Alejandro Gertz Manero on June 29th, “constitute important steps on the route to knowing the truth of what happened on September 26th, 2014 in Iguala. These are the first steps in which the political will that this government has shown in the Ayotzinapa case is condensed.”

However, it stated that “truth and justice are far from being achieved. The authorities must prosecute and sanction members of the security forces that operated in Iguala on the night of September 26th, directly and indirectly to attack Ayotzinapa students, and they will be challenged to implement legal mechanisms to approach the detainees and obtain information on the whereabouts of the missing youths. It is important to detain the highest level officials who constructed the historical lie with the deliberate intention of hiding the truth and the whereabouts of the 43 missing students, therefore, it is urgent that the immediate arrest and extradition of Tomas Zeron de Lucio architect of the so-called “historical truth” and fugitive from justice proceed.” The Prosecutor’s Office has reported that Zeron fled the country and is wanted by Interpol. He is accused by the FGR of torture and a series of irregularities in the case of the 43 students.

In the case of the 46 arrest warrants against public servants from various municipalities in the state of Guerrero, who are allegedly involved in the disappearance of the 43 normal students from Ayotzinapa, they are for the crimes of forced disappearance and organized crime, for facts that had not been investigated or prosecuted by the previous administrations of the last Attorney General of the Republic.

The prosecutor has also announced that other officials at various levels are expected to be brought to justice in the coming days, as well as to give information about the human remains that were sent to the University of Innsbruck.

Oaxaca: Complaint Lodged against Nation Guard for Absence in San Mateo del Mar

July 3, 2020

san-mateo-mar-oaxaca-1024x529@desinformemonos

In a statement published on June 28th, municipal agencies and community authorities that constitute the municipality of San Mateo del Mar blamed the municipal president along with a businessman from the same municipality for the violent events during the last two months that have left more than 15 people killed, houses burned and several people injured. They reported that insecurity continues as well as the absence of the government, despite their various requests for security measures.

They pointed out that this is not an internal conflict between communities, but rather attacks by an armed group controlled by an external agent with economic and political interests that intends to continue controlling, lying and distorting the truth for their personal ends. The statement emphasized that for this reason “since last year and since January 20th, 2020, the State government was informed and intervention requested by the authorities of the municipal capital and the agencies and communities that make up the Ikoots municipality of San Mateo del Mar.”

Representatives from the 13 communities openly questioned the actions of the state and federal authorities as well as the National Guard on June 21st:

“- Why did the National Guard abandon the town on the night of June 21st, why did they withdraw from the place?

– Why did the State Government not see to it when we requested attention?

– Who did nothing or did not act accordingly to avoid this tragedy?

– To which political and economic interests do government institutions that violate our autonomy respond?”

National/International: UNO Requests Mexican Government to Adopt Protection Measures for Human Rights Defenders

June 30, 2020

consorcio-oaxaca-870x522© ohchr

On June 29th, the Special Rapporteur on the situation of UN human rights defenders, Mary Lawlor, expressed in a statement “her grave concern at the intimidation, threats and killings to which human rights defenders are subjected in Mexico.” This, after the members of the Oaxaca Consortium organization on June 15th were victims of threats allegedly by an organized crime group.

“The level of vulnerability that defenders are in in certain regions of Mexico is extremely worrying. It is even more worrisome to observe the extraordinary risks faced by women human rights defenders and those who are dedicated to fighting for women’s rights”, the rapporteur said. In addition, she emphasized that Mexico has international obligations and, therefore, it must guarantee the protection of human rights defenders, especially against violations committed by agents of the State and private entities. She called on the Mexican government “to take measures to prevent future violations and to take retrospective measures in response to the violations already inflicted.”

The incorporation of a gender perspective to face the specific risks and security needs of human rights defenders, of those who work in the field of women’s rights or gender issues, is of utmost importance in Mexico, a country where gender violence continues, Lawlor emphasized.

Guerrero: 25th Anniversary of Aguas Blancas Massacre…No Justice

June 30, 2020

OCSS@Organizacion Campesina de la Sierra del Sur (OCSS)

On June 28th, various social organizations carried out the commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the Aguas Blancas massacre that occurred in Guerrero in 1995, when 17 campesinos from the Peasant Organization of the Sierra del Sur (OCSS) were assassinated by the police and state bailiffs.

The years of struggle for the quest for justice have given rise to recommendations by national and international bodies, however, the case continues without progress, those responsible are free and the families of the victims await justice. Despite the change in federal government two years ago, “the current government has no will to resolve things and deliver justice. The message of Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador of neither forgiving nor forgetting, today is the other way around, since it seems that the intention in his six-year term is that there is forgiveness and forgetfulness and we as organizations fight for the opposite”, expressed the current leader of the OCSS , Norma Mesino Mesino.

On June 28th, 2020, a small group of people gathered, due to the measures by the COVID-19 pandemic, who indicated that they will always be present to demand justice for their compañeros.

Chiapas: Frayba Reports over 40 Torture Cases in One Year

June 28, 2020

Frabya3@Frayba

On June 25th, in the framework of the United Nations International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, the Fray Bartolome de Las Casas Center for Human Rights (Frayba) held an online talk under the hashtag #StopTortura.

Three members of the organization announced that from January 2019 to March 2020 they received complaints of 41 cases of torture, of which they documented that 26 of them occurred within the framework of the adversarial system of criminal justice, that is, that the majority of the perpetrators are elements of the State Attorney General’s Office (FGE).

At the request of Frayba, the FGE reported that in 2018 31 investigation cases for the crime of torture were opened, of which 26 were pending, only one of these was linked to the trial and that there is no conviction of perpetrators in any of the cases, the organization stressed.

In Frayba’s bulletin “Torture is a Systematic and Widespread Practice in Mexico”, published the same day, it states that “this lack of effectiveness in the current judicial system maintains the patterns of non-access to justice for torture victims who are stigmatized and criminalized. The burden of proof continues with the questioning where the alleged culprits and the victims are not guaranteed protection and respect for human rights.” It adds that, in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, the legal processes of torture victims have been stopped, and thus the risks to the life, security and integrity of the victims have increased.

“Torture in Mexico is a mechanism that nullifies and terrifies the population, especially the excluded and marginalized. Added to the torture contexts are the internal forced displacements suffered by the communities of Original Peoples in Chiapas”, Frayba denounced in the June 25th bulletin and demanded that the Mexican state comply with the recommendations of the UN Committee against Torture.

Oaxaca/National: 7.5 Earthquake in State Ravaged by Pandemic

June 24, 2020

oaxaca-sismo© Forbes Mexico

On June 23rd, a 7.5-magnitude earthquake was registered in the town of Crucecitas, Oaxaca. As a result, several private and public buildings were damaged in more than 83 municipalities. However, the most regrettable thing is that, mainly due to roof and building collapses, seven people lost their lives. For this reason, the state governor, Alejandro Murat, decided to request an emergency declaration for all affected areas.

Other incidents caused by the tremor were also reported, such as a fire at the Salina Cruz refinery, which was immediately extinguished or some minor effects in hospitals such as the IMSS Hospital in Huatulco and in 15 other health centers. For its part, the Ministry of National Defense (SEDENA) activated the DN-III-E plan in its phase of assisting the population in Oaxaca with 2,356 members.

Saul Arellano Almanza, researcher at UNAM, explained that “the impact of an accident like this is greater for the Oaxaca region when there are precarious social and economic conditions.” This is due to the little evidence of reconstruction that there were after past earthquakes. In addition, the state of Oaxaca reports a strong impact in this pandemic situation since, along with Chiapas and Guerrero, it is 40% below the national average in the availability of doctors and health infrastructure.

As for the possible aftershocks, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador invited the population to be alert for the situations that can arise.
