Subject: JUSTICE FOR BETY CARIÑO AND JYRI JAAKOLA

On November 25th, 2010, International Day against Violence against Women, women and men from Mexico and the world sign this letter that will be delivered to you on December 10th, International Day of Human Rights.

We remember that last April 27th, in the region Triqui of San Juan Copala, Oaxaca our colleague Bety Cariño, a human rights defender and the international observer from Finland Jyri Jaakola were killed in a cowardly paramilitary attack against a humanitarian convoy in which they participated.

We express our concern because after seven months, the murderers of the paramilitary group clearly identified as UBISORT have not been punished; and we do not see progress in the investigations of the PGR nor political will to resolve the case.

We know that in our sad Mexico of today, violence has become a daily issue, as a result of the disastrous policies of recent governments that we totally repudiate along with many more citizens. Particularly in the day, we denounce all murders of women, Bety and all other generalized not only in Ciudad Juarez but in most Mexican states.

We denounce the INJUSTICE system in our country in which human rights defenders and social activists are treated as criminals, imprisoned or killed and the criminals remain at large in complete impunity.

WE DEMAND PUNISHMENT FOR THE MURDERERS OF ALBERTA CARIÑO AND JYRI JAAKOLA AND WE DO NOT REST AT NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL LEVELS UNTIL THEIR DETENTION AND SERVING OF THEIR SENTENCE.

NO MORE VIOLENCE!
ENOUGH OF IMPUNITY!

JUSTICE!

Asunto: JUSTICIA PARA BETY CARIÑO Y JYRI JAAKOLA

En este 25 de Noviembre del 2010, día internacional contra la violencia contra las mujeres, las mujeres y hombres de México y del mundo que firmamos esta carta que les será entregada el próximo 10 de Diciembre, día internacional de los derechos humanos,

les recordamos que el pasado 27 de Abril, fueron asesinada/os en la región triqui de San Juan Copala, Oaxaca nuestra compañera Bety Cariño, defensora de derechos humanos así como el observador internacional de Finlandia Jiri Jaakola en un cobarde ataque paramilitar contra la caravana humanitaria en la cual participaban.

Y les manifestamos nuestra profunda molestia porque después de siete meses, no hay castigo a los asesinos perfectamente identificados del grupo paramilitar UBISORT; tampoco vemos avances en las investigaciones de la PGR ni voluntad política de resolver el caso.

Ya sabemos que en nuestro triste México de hoy la violencia se ha vuelto cotidiana, como resultado de las nefastas políticas de los últimos gobiernos que repudiamos totalmente junto con otros millones de ciudadanas y ciudadanos más. Particularmente en ese día denunciamos todos los asesinatos de mujeres, el de Bety y todos los demás generalizados no solo en Cd. Juárez sino que en la mayoría de los Estados de la República.

Denunciamos el sistema de IN-JUSTICIA de nuestro país en el cual los y las defensores de derechos humanos y luchadores sociales son tratados como delincuentes, encarcelados o asesinados y los criminales siguen sueltos con toda IMPUNIDAD.

EXIGIMOS EL CASTIGO A LOS ASESINOS DE ALBERTA CARIÑO Y JYRI JAAKOLA Y NO DESCANSAREMOS A NIVEL NACIONAL E INTERNACIONAL HASTA NO VERLOS DETENIDOS Y CUMPLIENDO SU CONDENA.

¡BASTA YA DE VIOLENCIA! ¡BASTA YA DE IMPUNIDAD!
¡JUSTICIA!
