Human Rights Café: Disappearances in Mexico

PBI the Netherlands would like to invite you for the fourteenth edition of the Human Rights Café. In September, we have shown the premiere of the impressive documentary “Portraits of a Search”. This film shows three Mexican mothers, desperately searching for their missing sons and encountering resistance from the Mexican government.

With over 26.000 people missing since president Felipe Calderón declared the war to the drugs cartels, this unfortunately is a well-known problem in Mexico.

Human rights defender María will be in the Netherlands soon to raise awareness about this painful issue. María is part of the Fuundec Collective (Fuerzas Unidas por Nuestros Desaparecidos en Coahuila), in which she lobbies for the responsibility the authorities should take, and simultaneously try and find her own son, Iván, who has been missing since 2011. During this Human Rights Café, she will tell us about her experiences dealing with this national issue. This evening will be held entirely in Spanish, though the documentary will be English subtitled.

Entrance is free and you will be provided with a free drink and snack.
