June 20, 2018 DGC/175/18 The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) underli- nes that before the indifference and persecution of authorities, as well as the social rejection and discrimination that face immi- grant people in the United States of America, societies and origin countries of that migrant popu- lation must begin raising aware- ness about the magnitude and re- percussions of such problems, be more sensitive and adopt proper measures to give an answer to it, facing the critical course that has taken. This is how Luis Raúl Gonzá- lez Pérez, national Ombudsper- son expressed it, in the solemn session of the University Coun- cil of the Universidad Autóno- ma de Aguascalientes (UAA), in which the 45th anniversary of its creation was celebrated and was granted the honorary doctoral degree to the humanitarian aid group “Las Patronas” –such or- ganization won the 2013 Human Rights National Award which is granted by the NHRC – and tal- king about it he said that it has demonstrated the utility that opportune, relevant and concrete actions can have for the attention of a problem, when acting with integrity, responsibility and real social commitment. He said that it is a group of fe- male Mexicans who have made of service and help to others, not only a vocation but a life com- mitment, praising within such acts what it means and implies the recognition and respect of human dignity, and he emphasi- zed that giving food and support without profit and gratuitous to who migrates not only brings life to a path where fear, uncertain- ty and often death are constant. They also bring a message of hu- manity and hope to who lack of everything. He reaffirmed that Mexican authorities ought to be coherent to what we demand to American authorities related to the treat- ment and respect of the human rights of Mexicans in the United States; because those are the basis we must use to treat immigrants who come to our territory. That is why we must be the exam- ple, fulfilling what we demand to others: decent treatment, zero tolerance to discrimination, and an appropriate outreach of infor- mation they need to demand and exercise their rights. http://www.cndh.org.mx/sites/all/doc/Co- municados/2018/Com_2018_175.pdf The voice of the President New Age, No. 304 INDEX 4 New Age, No. 304 Event of the month HIGH EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS ARE STRENGTHENED AS SPACES OF RECOGNITION OF HUMAN RIGHTS AND SUBSTANTIAL EQUALITY BETWEEN WOMEN AND MEN: NHRC DGC/152/18 June 1, 2018 The National Human Rights Commission signed the collaboration agreement with CIEG-UNAM, INMUJERES, CONAVIM, ANUIES, ONU-MUJE- RES and RENIES-IGUALDAD for the establishment of the National Observatory for Gender Equality in the High Education Institutions. In this regard, the national organism emphasi- zed that we must not wait for acting until a case of violence or grievance for gender motives become news. Because high educations institutions are not only knowledge, research, innovation and develop- ment houses, but also as consolidated spaces of re- cognition and validity of human rights, of respect peaceful living of all people, as well as substantial equality between genders and harmonious and complete development for every person. http://www.cndh.org.mx/sites/all/doc/Comunicados/2018/ Com_2018_152.pdf Press Releases THE SAFETY OF JOURNALISTS AND THE MEDIA IS A FUNDAMENTAL REQUIREMENT OF ANY DEMOCRACY, THE NHRC AFFIRMS DGC/160/18 June 7, 2018 In the framework of the comme- moration of the World Freedom of Expression Day, the Natio- nal Human Rights Commission (NHRC) notes that while all jour- nalists do not enjoy suitable con- ditions to do their activities in a safe environment, we will not be able to climb as a nation to de- mocratic stages where freedom of expression be not only a mere legal aspiration, but an exercised and enjoyed right for all of us. This national organism has stated on different occasions for generating favorable conditions for the practice of journalism. One of the requirements to reach this goal is preventing and pe- nalizing the aggressions, accor- ding to law, for those who have been committed them, bringing the responsible to justice. The recurren- ce of these conducts and the lack of punishment generates not only a high rate of impunity, but also the existence of entire regions of the country where news are not pu- blished because of the fear of journalists and the media to suffer an aggression. The killings and disappearan- ces of journalists, as well as each one of the aggressions against communicators committed in the country, show of an especially se- vere situation regarding freedom of expression, and it requires the commitment of authorities of three levels of government to end up with this high risk situation and to foster freedom and safety conditions for all of them. http://www.cndh.org.mx/sites/all/doc/Co- municados/2018/Com_2018_160.pdf INDEX 5 New Age, No. 304 Press Releases THE NHRC CALLS UPON FAMILIES, SOCIETY AND AUTHORITIES TO ERADICATE VIOLENCE AGAINST OLDER PEOPLE, AND REAFFIRMS IT’S EXHORT TO THE MEXICAN STATE TO RATIFY THE INTER-AMERICAN CONVENTION ON PROTECTING THEIR HUMAN RIGHTS DGC/167/18 June 15, 2018 The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) calls upon the Mexican State, families and society to join efforts to achie- ve the eradication of violence against older people, which on many occasions is imperceptible and even tolerated. It becomes in physical injuries, long time phy- siological consequences, aban- donment, isolation, life quality decline, and even death, which constitutes a violation of human rights of millions of people. Worldwide, the data about the incidence of this phenome- non, as well as the availability and efficiency of prevention and attention mechanisms are low, meanwhile the denounce rates before justice organisms do not show with certainty the reality, because the victims are afraid or ashamed to ask support from their relatives, friends or authori- ties. By commemorating the World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, the NHRC emphasizes that ageing does not constitutes a restriction for the enjoyment and exercise of human rights, and reiterates its exhort to the Mexican State to ra- tify the Inter-American Conven- tion on Protecting the Human Rights of Older Persons and to implement special measures in- cluding gender perspective and prevention of any form of violen- ce against this population. http://www.cndh.org.mx/sites/all/doc/Co- municados/2018/Com_2018_167.pdf INDEX 6 New Age, No. 304 Press Releases OMBUDSPERSON OF MEXICO, COLOMBIA, ECUADOR, GUATEMALA AND HONDURAS REQUEST THE IACHR, TO ISSUE PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES TO THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES IN ORDER TO STOP THE SEPARATION OF FAMILIES AND PROTECT THE RIGHTS OF CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS DGC/174/18 June 19, 2018 The National Commission for Human Rights of Mexico, joined by the National Human Rights Institutions (INDH) of Colombia, Ecuador, Guatemala and Hondu- ras, requested the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR), to call the United Sta- tes Governement to interrupt the separation of migrant children and adolescents from their fami- lies. Also, to adopt all necessary measures to protect their rights to personal integrity, family and personal freedom, in relation to the rights of children. The request for precautionary measures was addressed on June 18, to the Executive Secretary of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, Paulo Abrão, and it was signed by the holders of the National Human Rights Commission of Mexico, Luis Raúl González Pérez; the Om- budsman of Colombia, Carlos Alfonso Nefret Mosquera; the Human Rights Ombudsman of Guatemala, Augusto Jordán Ro- das Andrade, and the National Commission of Human Rights of the Republic of Honduras, Ro- berto Herrera Cáceres, as well as the Head of the Ombudsman of the Republic of Ecuador, Gina Benavides Llerena. The NIHR noted, “The benefi- ciaries of these precautionary me- asures are migrant children and adolescents who arrive with their families to the southern border of the United States of America and who are separated from them by the authorities of that country”. In that sense, they all requested the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights to call for the United States of America to: a) in- terrupt the practice of separating migrant children and adolescents from their families, and b) take all necessary measures to protect their rights to personal integrity, health, family and personal free- dom, in relation to the rights of children. For the Ombudsperson the change that the United States had in immigration policy, which stopped protecting the right to family unity and the best inte- rests of migrant children and adolescents, is of particular con- cern because it decided to use the separation of families as a sanc- tion for people trying to migrate to that country. The heads of the NHRIs welcome the issuance of a communiqué from the IACHR in the same sense of demanding protection for the human rights of minors in the migratory con- text and opposing the zero tole- rance policy, while appreciating the possibility of acting together with the International Organi- zation to strengthen its actions in favor of migrant children and adolescents. They also indicated in their re- quest to the IACHR that it is espe- cially dangerous that the separa- tion of families has been taken as a mechanism to dissuade people from migrating to that country, facing the danger of being sepa- rated from their children if they try. This position of the US go- vernment, they said, is inhuman and represents a total disregard for the rights of migrant children and adolescents, as well as for the special need for protection they own. The States specified that the migration policy of the United States to separate migrant chil- dren and adolescents from their fathers and mothers breaks the family bond between them. In this regard, they recalled that the United States has as duty, becau- se of the Article VII of the Ameri- can Declaration of the Rights and Duties of Man, to protect chil- dren, and to enforce the principle of the best interest of children. In these sense, they assured that the separation of the children of their parents is contrary to the best in- terest because of the emotional damages that this causes to chil- dren and adolescents. http://www.cndh.org.mx/sites/all/doc/Co- municados/2018/Com_2018_174.pdf INDEX 7 New Age, No. 304 Press Releases THE NHRC PRESENTED AN ALTERNATIVE REPORT ABOUT THE SITUATION OF WOMEN IN MEXICO BEFORE THE CEDAW AND WILL COME BEFORE IT TO SUSTAIN IT ON ITS 70 SESSION DGC/182/18 June 25, 2018 The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) for the first time submitted to the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimi- nation against Women (CEDAW) its alternative report, in the fra- mework of the review of the nin- th report of the Mexican gover- nment before this international body. The situation of women´s ri- ghts in Mexico will be assessed before such committee, during its 70 session to take place next July in Geneva, Switzerland. In such document, the NHRC makes ob- servations about the current si- tuation of respect and protection of women´s human rights, and presents the actions of this natio- nal organism, in especially hard moments, when violence against them has increased. The alternative report was drafted over a year and contains an assessment of the implementa- tion of the Gender Alerts in diffe- rent States of the country and the follow-up made by the National System of Prevention, Attention, Sanction and Eradication of Vio- lence against Women, both achie- ved by the NHRC for mandate of law; furthermore, it resumes the assessments of the “Follow-up Platform to the Normative Har- monization of Human Rights – The Right of Women to a free Life of Violence—”, presented by the NHRC on March 8. It also incorporates the comp- laints and recommendations on equality issued by the NHRC; as well as the data submitted by civil society organizations and State Human Rights Commis- sions. The report addresses spe- cific issues like rights of girls and teenagers, female killings, lack of access to justice, risks that face migrant and refugee women, life conditions of those deprived of their liberty, grievances to hu- man rights defenders, political participation, obstetric violence, gender equality sexual diversi- ty and child marriage, among others. http://www.cndh.org.mx/sites/all/doc/Co- municados/2018/Com_2018_182.pdf INDEX 8 New Age, No. 304 Press Releases THE INTER-AMERICAN COMMISSION ON HUMAN RIGHTS ASKS THE USA INFORMATION ABOUT FAMILY SEPARATIONS, AS AN ANSWER TO PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES DEMANDED BY THE NHRC AND OTHER HUMAN RIGHTS NATIONAL INSTITUTIONS DGC/187/18 June 28, 2018 On June 22, 2018, the Inter-Ame- rican Commission on Human Ri- ghts (IACHR) formally asked the government of the United States of America to send detailed in- formation about the location and treatment given to immigrant girls, boys and teenagers sepa- rated from their families, as well as the reunification process that it will implement to reunite them again with their relatives. This information request takes place as an answer to an applica- tion of precautionary measures promoted by the NHRC, together with other human rights national institutions, which came befo- re the AICHR on June 18 asking the Inter-American Commission to demand the United States of America to stop separating boys, girls and teenagers from their families, and to adopt necessary measures to protect their rights to personal integrity, health, fa- mily and personal freedom, rela- ted with childhood rights. http://www.cndh.org.mx/sites/all/doc/Co- municados/2018/Com_2018_187.pdf Recommendations Responsible Authority Issue Recommendation Ministry of Energy About the case of infringement of the human right to previous, free, informed, adequate culturally and of good faith consultation dama- ging the human rights of collective property and cultural identity of the Mayo People and the Yaqui tribe, because of the Sonora gas pipeline, segment Guaymas el Oro.

Other countries in Latin America and The Caribbean are implementing taxes, restrictions and prohibitions to combat plastic bags and its dama- ging impacts on oceans and marine species. Latin America and The Caribbean cannot sit back facing plastic pollution: it is one of the regions of the world with bigger biodiversity; it holds 16 million square kilometers of sea and is the source of 24% of global fishery. The governments of the region have been applying bold policies against pollution. Antigua and Barbuda was the first country in the continent prohibiting plastic bags in 2016. A bit la- ter, Colombia did the same prohibiting also in 2016 the circulation plastic bags under 30x30 centimeters and a year later imposed a tax to bigger size bags. At the beginning of 2018, Panama became the first country in Central America in prohibiting by law politiliene bags. Other countries are also part of this regional effort like Costa Rica, which has a national strategy to reduce drastically the use of disposable plastics by 2021. Ecuador has just laun- ched a progressive restriction of straws, bags and disposable bottles in the remote Galápagos Islands to make the archipelago a plastic free zone. https://www.unenvironment.org/es/news-and-stories/reportajes/ america-latina-y-el-caribe-lider-en-la-lucha-contra-las-bolsas INDEX 10 New Age, No. 304 Book of the month REFUGEES Sami Nair Number of pages: 192 pages. Binding: Soft cover Publisher: CRITICA Language: CASTILIAN ISBN: 9788416771097 An educational, strict essay, appointed to raise awareness. What is happening some time ago in the borders of Europe and especially since the summer of 2015 was predictable and it announces a new era of management of migratory flows. The main lesson is that since the escape of millions of people from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as from Eritrea, Somalia, Nigeria, Libya, the distinction between economic immigrants and asylum petitionary is fading. Facing the arrival of hundreds of thousands of refugees, Europe is treading on its fundamental values of human solidarity, being incapa- ble of elaborating a cooperative strategy of its partners. https://www.casadellibro.com/libro-refugiados/9788416771097/3033454 INDEX INDEX President Luis Raúl González Pérez First General Visitor Ismael Eslava Pérez Second General Visitor Enrique Guadarrama López Third General Visitor Ruth Villanueva Castilleja Fourth General Visitor María Eréndira Cruzvillegas Fuentes Fifth General Visitor Edgar Corzo Sosa Sixth General Visitor Jorge Ulises Carmona Tinoco Executive Secretary Consuelo Olvera Treviño Technical Secretary of the AdvisorCouncil Joaquín Narro Lobo The CNDH Defends and protects your rights Newsletter Periférico Sur 3469, Col.
