Libertad para Nestora /Freedom for Nestora – U.S. Campaign statement on Ayotzinapa, Guerrero student killings

October 8, 2014

To the students of Ayotzinapa, Guerrero:

The Libertad para Nestora campaign in the U.S. stands in solidarity with you and your families today against the brutal repression and violence you have suffered at the hands of corrupt Guerrero political leaders and their criminal accomplices. We are incredibly saddened by the massacre of almost 50 students whose only “crime” was to struggle for a just society. What a callous waste of the precious lives of dedicated young people!

We raise our voices to join the chorus demanding that Sr. Ángel Aguirre, governor of Guerrero, resign immediately and that all those with blood on their hands be brought to justice. We have worked in the U.S. for a year to free Comandanta Nestora Salgado. There is only one reason she is still in prison: Governor Águirre refuses to release her despite an order by a federal judge. We have also fought for the freedom of other community police incarcerated under Águirre’s rule. Now he and the PRD have presided over the worst act of political violence in Mexico in decades. We join you in demanding an end to this reign of terror and lawlessness in Guerrero!

FREE NESTORA SALGADO AND ALL POLITICAL PRISONERS!
PROSECUTE THE ASSASSINS OF THE STUDENTS OF GUERRERO!
END THE REIGN OF TERROR AND CORRUPTION IN GUERRERO, MICHOACÁN AND PUEBLA!

In solidarity,

Libertad para Nestora /Freedom for Nestora –U.S. Campaign
