We invite you to a protest calling for the freedom of political prisoners and Mexico. According to the Cerezo Mexican Human Rights Committee, there are 395 political prisoners in Mexico, meaning activists imprisoned for defending human rights in Mexico. Comité Cerezo (http://www.nodo50.org/comitecerezo/presos.htm).

Among the most famous political prisoners are Dr. Mireles, organizer of the Autodefensas in Michoacan, and Nestora Salgado, commander of the Community Police of Guerrero.

Nestora Salgado is a citizen of the United States and Mexico. Despite her dual citizenship, she has spent nearly two years in prison in Mexico. Her crime: tackling corruption and extortion against his people in Guerrero, Mexico. The government's excuse: accusing her of being one of the criminals she fights against. In this video, her daughter explains the struggle: Family ofNestora Salgado - Hunger Strike Appeal

Nestora has been on hunger strike since early May calling for her freedom. In San Diego, five activists went on hunger strike on May 29 demanding the release of Nestora. The Consulate of Mexico in San Diego offered to answer the request for release of Nestora tomorrow, June 3, at 5 pm. We invite you to come and support the demands:
