Please enjoy our welcome home video for Nestora Salgado! And don’t forget that the fight is ongoing: there are many political prisoners still in Mexico who desperately need our support!
Nestora has received and always supported the teaching college students of Ayotzinapa. This is a 3-minute video in Spanish that shows what happened the night of September 26, 2014 when 43 students disappeared and several were murdered. ¡Adelante!
We’ve included the video after the jump.

Thousands of angry teachers took to the streets of the Mexican capital to protest labor policies that they charge are a step toward privatization of public education and put their workplace rights in jeopardy.
In addition to protesting against these policies, the teachers also called for the release of political prisoners, particularly Nestora Salgado. The protests coincided with the Campaign to Free Nestora Salgado’s visit to Mexico City. Campaign member Stephen Durham and Nestora Salgado’s daughter Grisel Rodriguez are also featured in the video.
