Help The Women Of Atenco

A friend sent me an e-mail today to tell me about the plight of the women of Atenco .

This is quite horrifying and while I am not 100% sure, that by colouring in butterflies you can change things, I do feel that by doing it you are at lest saying that you know what is going on in Mexico and you don't like it.

So I will be gathering my friends together for an afternoon solidarity and butterfly colouring.

Basically these women were activists from a local peasant organization in San Salvador Atenco, Mexico, over 45 women were arrested without explanation.

Many of the 45 women arrested were physically, psychologically and sexually violated by police officers who arrested them. More than two years later, they are still waiting for justice. Not one of the officers responsible for the abuse has been adequately held accountable.

Would you as a woman want to be arrested in Mexico, or would you want your mother, sister, aunt, girlfriend, or wife arrested in Mexico.

Please read the article and if you can't yourself do anything, please at lest pass it on, so that others can see it and maybe join in.

There is a pdf to down load, so you could send this to family and friends around the World.

Thank you for reading this and please try to help. If these women were women you know or your neighbours you would want to help, thing is the way I see it is, we are all neighbours of the World.
