JUSTICE FOR XOCHITL - AN ALARMING

By Susan Smith | Director

Dear Friends of Atzin and Tlamacazapa,

For the past month at Atzin we have been working in crisis mode to prevent a grave injustice. 

On May 3, 2023, three police officers arrested our program coordinator, Xochitl R.V., on the street in Cuernavaca, Morelos, very close to the office of Atzin Mexico.

A 43-year old Indigenous woman, Xochitl is being held at Atlacholoaya state prison, wrongly charged with aggravated kidnapping, at great risk to her health and the wellbeing of her adult dependent son.

She has dedicated years of excellent work as a human rights defender, trainer and community organizer with Atzin Mexico in Tlamacazapa, Guerrero. 

Xochitl is innocent. She had nothing to do with this, or any other crime, before, during or after its occurrence. To read more about this case, please visit www.atzin.org

All moral and financial support is greatly appreciated. 

Thank you, and rest assured that the Atzin team is working tirelessly for justice, while keeping the village programs going.

Sincerely, Susan

Xochitl
