United Forces for Our Disappeared in Coahuila


Saltillo, Coahuila, June 13, 2010

One month after the demonstrations in the city of Mexico City, carried out by members of United Forces for Our Disappeared in Coahuila (FUUNDEC) , where we denounce the disappearance of 36 people, it is regrettable to report that it has increased to 50 the date to date . Relatives of these have come to us to join the clamor for justice and life presentation of our loved ones.

The last cases of missing persons are in Saltillo, Monclova, Ramos Arizpe and Torreón and they are already being documented by the “Fray Juan de Larios Diocesan Center for Human Rights” and a coordination with the group of relatives that make up FUUNDEC has already begun. .

On the other hand, as we had informed you, since February a hearing was requested with the Governor Professor Humberto Morerira Valdez, which has not been granted. The silence worries us because it seems that the clamor of justice of the families of disappeared people in the state of Coahuila, is not of importance for the agenda of a Governor who says “of the people”.

We are still waiting for the proposal of the Unit for the Promotion and Defense of Human Rights, a body dependent on the Ministry of the Interior, to hold a working meeting with federal and state agencies to monitor our demand for justice. .

We call on all those who are in a similar situation to break the wall of fear and join our group, from which they will receive guidance and emotional support, as well as a space to share the painful experiences that all Families have passed.





Saltillo, Coahuila, September 15, 2011

Today, September 15, the day on which the celebration of Mexican Independence takes place, those of us who have disappeared family members, whether by organized crime groups or State Agents, we can only say that our hearts can not shout “Long live the heroes who they gave us a homeland “” Viva México “; we can only cry LIVE THEY WERE TAKEN, LIVE WE WANT THEM !.

The indolence with which the authorities of the three orders of government act, besides generating an act of torture, hinders the investigations for the living location of our loved ones. The pain we feel is increased when we see the authorities who are dressed up today pretending that nothing is happening and we remember that it is the same simulation with which they act in our cases of the disappeared and that it is already a systematic practice.

To the civil society that is aware of what is happening in our state, we urge them to remain organized and organized so that they show their solidarity with the victims not only of Coahuila, but also at the national level.

To those people who show a generalized indifference about the violence we live in and who will attend the celebration today, we invite them to join our clamor, not to be afraid, to walk together and together so as not to be part of the violence living in Coahuila and throughout Mexico.

Because we are not complete, because we need our missing and disappeared, because we need those who have executed, because we need those who have been exiled, because we need those who have moved; for them and they will scream and demand justice.

For the disappeared and disappeared, our cry is and will continue to be: LIVE THEY WERE TAKEN, LIVE WE WANT THEM!
