On June 1, Comité Nestora Libre hosted a press conference in Mexico City with Free Nestora campaign-U.S. delegates and the families of Nestora and other political prisoners. We demand the Mexican government release all political prisoners!

Agustina Emilia, partner of political prisoner Arturo Campos speaks to the workers: “I am not a criminal. My husband is not a criminal. We are working people.” ” We must hold Pena Nieto responsible for what is happening to my husband, to Nestora and all the political prisoners.” “There will be justice and there will be punishments.” The movements are coming together to oppose state repression in Mexico. Those fighting to free political prisoners, the teachers, and the Ayotzinapa famlies are joining forces in this pre-election season– a new and promising development. In the U.S. we need to follow their example and unify the movements for justice.
