We call on the Prime Minister of Canada, Stephen Harper, and Minister of Foreign Affairs, John Baird to demand that Mexican President, Enrique Peña Nieto, ensure that human rights abuses in Mexico, in relation to the case of the 43 students of Ayotzinapa, be investigated to the full extent of the law and that those culpable of human rights abuses be prosecuted.
On November 5 2014, people from all over the world came together to support the cause of the 43 missing students of the Rural Isidro Burgos School in Ayotzinapa, Guerrero, Mexico. Rejecting conformity and resignation when it comes to the criminally repressive government of Mexico and the silence of media, the Memoria Viva Society of Edmonton (MVSE), representing Latin Americans in diaspora, calls for solidarity with the people of Mexico. Today we raise our voices of hope and in peaceful resistance state that “We are all Ayotzinapa”.
Join us on November 20th in Churchill Square to stand in solidarity with the 43 missing students of Ayotzinapa, on this historic date commemorating the fallen of the Mexican Revolution (November 20th 1910).
