Solidarity with the Mexican People in the Year Ahead

Happy solstice, Merry Xmas, and a Happy Gregorian New Year,

Peace and justice to all.

Friends of Brad Will continues to support demands of the parents of the Ayotzinapa students, who participated this week in a hunger strike at the Mexican Consulate in New York City. Antonio Tizapa, the father of Jorge Antonio Tizapa Legideño, who was taken by the Mexican police in view of the Mexican military along with the other students on the night of September 26, 2014, ended his 48-hour hunger strike today to draw attention to his son’s disappearance by the Mexican State.

The Mexican government and the U.S. government have worked together to minimize the scandal which adds to the many outrages by the Mexican security forces and corrupt civil administration against the Mexican people. The disappearances have created increased demands from around the world that President Obama’s failed ‘drug war’ program, Plan Mexico (aka the Merida Initiative), be ended.

Here’s an interview which Robert from Friends of Brad Will gave on Christmas night at the Mexican Consulate hunger strike.
