Hi there,

Today is Giving Tuesday, a day dedicated to supporting non-profits. Democracy Now! is a free source of independent news for tens of millions of people around the world, but less than 1% of our global audience donates to support our critical journalism. Let’s pick up the percentage! In honor of Giving Tuesday, a generous contributor will TRIPLE your donation to Democracy Now!, which means if you give $10, we’ll get $30. Please don’t miss out on this opportunity to triple your impact. Democracy Now! doesn't accept advertising income, corporate underwriting or government funding because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. We rely on you for support—and we’re counting on you right now. I hope you’ll give as much as you can today. Every dollar makes a difference. Thanks so much.
-Amy Goodman

Authorities Uncover Likely Remains of Missing Indigenous Activist 3 Weeks After Disappearance

HeadlineJun 21, 2021

In Mexico, authorities believe they’ve found the remains of Tomás Rojo Valencia, a Yaqui Indigenous leader who disappeared in the northern state of Sonora about three weeks ago. Valencia had been part of ongoing resistance by Yaqui land and water defenders against gas ducts, water pipelines and railway lines that run across their territory. For months Yaqui activists have led several highway roadblocks protesting attacks on their community.

This comes as two journalists were murdered in Mexico last week. Enrique García was killed Wednesday night in the state of Mexico while he was reportedly working as a driver for an app. And Gustavo Sánchez Cabrera was shot to death in the state of Oaxaca on Thursday.
