Criminalization of social protest

Territories of Resistance and Healing

Women’s Movement in Defense of Mother Earth and Territory seeks a way to join efforts with other movements in the country and the world in defense of nature, the environment, peasants, indigenous peoples, and women who are the most affected by the violence of the capitalist system. The movement, driven by the strength and determination of indigenous and peasant women, has sought, since its inception, to transcend individual and local processes, heading towards the regional construction of the Movement to fight against all forms of violence against women and their families generated by the neo-liberal, patriarchal and neo-extractivist capitalist system — from the increase in poverty, migration and drug trafficking, to the dispossession of land by other groups, organized crime, or even sometimes by their own family members.

This process of militarization assumes more sinister tones with recent revelations from the “Guacamaya Leaks” that the military continue to monitor defenders and journalists, and in the state of Guerrero, social defenders, including the attorney for the relatives of the 43 disappeared student teachers in the Ayotzinapa case, are being targeted for criminalization. We share the statement of collectives and individuals in response to this latest attack.
