Human rights organisations condemns repressive and deadly action by Mexican police

From our website:

The IRCT condemns the repressive action by the Mexican police following the recent student demonstrations in southern Guerrero. The action by the police resulted in the death of Alexis Herrera Jorge Pino and Gabriel Echeverria, several severe injuries and numerous detentions.

IRCT member organisation CCTI and other human rights organisationscall on the Mexican authorities to respect the integrity of the students present at the scene, and all those who were arrested, whether students, journalists or others present, for the immediate release of all persons arrested for these acts, and for a prompt and impartial investigation about the circumstances and those responsible for the death of the two students.

An urgent action statement signed by multiple human rights organisations, including our member centre CCTI (Collective against Torture and Impunity) in Mexico is available here (PDF en español)
