Hi there,

Democracy Now is committed to bringing you the stories and perspectives you won't hear anywhere else, from the peace activists demanding an end to war to Indigenous leaders fighting to stop fossil fuel extraction and save the planet. Our independent reporting is only possible because we’re funded by you—not by the weapons manufacturers when we cover war or gun violence, not by the oil, gas, coal, or nuclear companies when we cover the climate crisis. Can you donate $10 today to keep us going strong? Every dollar makes a difference. Right now a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, making it twice as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

Mexican Families Remember Disappeared Loved Ones

HeadlineDec 15, 2021

In Mexico, family members of people who’ve been disappeared scattered soil across Mexico City’s National Palace Monday as part of a protest demanding justice for their missing loved ones. This is one of the relatives.

Relative of disappeared person: “If President Andrés Manuel López Obrador does not go to the graves, then the graves go to Andrés Manuel López Obrador, so that he realizes what we are suffering in the state of Guanajuato. It is not a lie. It is an issue at the national, state and municipal level. We are suffering.”

Mexico’s government estimates there are over 60,000 missing people in the country — the vast majority of them victims of the U.S.-backed so-called war on drugs.
