Violence in Mexico, 3 perspectives


#Yosoy132-Holanda invites you to the forum: ‘Violence in Mexico, 3 perspectives’

The event will be held on June 11 at the Institute of Social Studies (ISS) from 13h-15h. (Kortenaerkade 12 , 2518 AX, The Hague)

Our guest speakers will be:

Dr. Rosalba Icaza,
specialised in the international political economy of transborder civic resistance to open/neo-liberal regionalism in Latin America.

Arsène van Nierop, founder of Stichting Hester,, whose work is remarkable in trying to prevent gender violence in Cd. Juárez.

-#yosoy132-Holanda, a Mexican protest movement centered around the democratization of the country and its media. It began as opposition to the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) candidate Enrique Peña Nieto and the Mexican media’s allegedly biased coverage of the 2012 general election.

Feminicides in Cd. Juárez, violence against freedom of expression experienced by journalists, and repression of social protests in Mexico are some of the issues that will be explored during this event. Each of our speakers will bring their perspective on these matters. We hope you will be able to join us.
