We say NO MORE. No more violence. No more terror. No more impunity.
The governments of the United States and Mexico are both responsible for the massive violations of human rights and state crimes against migrants such as the fire in Ciudad Juárez which left forty people dead, as well as the record number of migrant deaths in the border region over the past year.
The victims number in the thousands – human beings, lost lives, a tragic figure whose number has not even been adequately counted or taken into account.
We must have accountability.
On June 30th, The People’s Movement for Peace and Justice is mobilizing a binational day of action – with protests and rallies planned for Mexico City, New York, San Francisco, Florida, Tijuana, and Tapachula. Throughout the United States and Mexico.
If you would like to attend one of these events, please click here to find out more.
And if you can’t make it in person – we’d love for you to join our online action by joining our Twitter Storm and recording a video testimonial or taking a picture sharing your message and sharing out on social media (make sure to tag us @globalexchange). On June 30th between 10:00am – 12:00pm PST we will be tweeting @POTUS @lopezobrador @SecMayorkas and @INAMI_mx to stop criminalization, detention and deportation of asylum seekers and develop human rights centered and compassionate migration policies.
The People’s Movement for Peace and Justice is a binational movement working to bring accountability, justice, and transparency to the U.S./Mexico policies that impact our communities and lives on both sides of our shared border.
We are activists, community leaders, victims and survivors of violence, migrants, members of diverse ethnic groups, communities of color, LGBTQIA+ communities from throughout Mexico, the United States and across the Americas.
On June 30th, we will make our demands heard loud and clear:
An end to the current migration system with its deportation, detention, and cruelty – resulting in the tragic and unnecessary death of migrants. An expansion of asylum. Truth, justice, and reparation. Labor agreements that protect workers and the environment.
If you cannot join us in the streets on June 30th, please send a message of solidarity and join in the action online.
Together, we are too powerful to ignore.
