Likewise, he highlighted that the right to tru- th is opposed to indifference and oblivion. González Pérez was accompanied at the presidium by Mr. Sergio Jai- me Rochín del Rincón, Commis- sioner Chairman of the Executive Committee for Victims (CEAV); Roberto Campa Cifrián, Underse- cretary for Human Rights of the Ministry of the Interior; Leticia Bonifaz Alfonzo, General Direc- tor for Human Rights Research, Promotion and Development of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation, and Armando Luna Canales, Chairman of the Hu- man Rights Commission of the Chamber of Deputies. “Where violence and the lack of principles often seem imposed –he assured-, truth raises as an unavoidable value and as goal to all”. He added that “if the truth of painful passages of people´s his- tory is not determined and trans- mitted, we are doomed to repeat them”. He warned about complexity to make this right effective, since it goes beyond authorities’ wi- llingness and resources. “In the midst crisis because of institu- tions ‘credibility in our country, he explain-, to exercise this right imposes on authorities the duty to work in favor of our society, to renew their credibility with it. The truth is demonstrated and supported by evidence, but if the person who provides the eviden- ce and collects it is questioned, the truth is also questioned. He noted that “truth is opposed to forgetting the facts and tragedies that harms society. The right to truth is also to honor public me- mory, to rescue it from ostracism, assert it and to make it effective”. He warned that truth challenges us because of it hardness and me- aning of the revelations that could bring, thus we must not create individual truths, and instead we must uncover and expose the truth about the events that invol- ves human rights violations. “The truth-he said- is only one and this is the truth we must achieve”. municados/2016/Com_2016_087.pdf The voice of the President Nueva época, No. 277 INDICE 4 New Age, No. 277 Event of the month Critical juncture in Human Rights at Mexico and CNDH challenges, conversation topics between the Mexican Ombudsman and the UN- ICC Chairperson Geneva, Switzerland, March 24th, 2016 The Mexican Ombudsman, Luis Raúl González Pérez, accounted the work carried out by the National Human Rights Commission (CNDH), together with the United Nations treaties agencies and the special mechanisms of the Council, such as the Special Rapporteurs and working groups. The above was made during the realization of the 29th General Assembly of the UN International Coordinating Committee of National Human Rights Institutions. In this context, he held a meeting with the UN Human Rights Councils’ Chairperson, Choi Kyonglim, with whom he addressed the critical juncture on fundamental rights that actually are faced by our country, as well as its main challenges. He noted to the representative of the international body, that the care of victims is one of the axes of CND- H´s daily work and that at all time it searches the full compensation of the damage. He pointed out that promotion and dissemination of fundamental rights is a daily duty for the prevention of essential rights. Also, he reported the advances on the implementation of Merida’s Declaration in our country. INDICE 5 New Age, No. 277 Press Releases INDICE CNDH SCOURS THE COUNTRY TO RAISE AWARENESS AMONG AUTHORITIES AND SOCIETY AIMING TO ERRADI- CATE DISCRIMINATION AGAINST AFRO-DESCENDANTS COMMUNITIES CGCP/055/16 March 5th, 2016 Héctor Daniel Dávalos Martí- nez, Executive Secretary of the National Commission, said that the National Human Rights Commission (CNDH) scours the country aiming to raise aware- ness amongst authorities and society in general on discrimi- nation suffered by Afro-Mexican persons, likewise to boost initia- tive that allow this population sector constitutional recognition. Under the Zero Discrimination Day framework, he underlined the importance of attending this discrimination issue that lives the –descendant population in Mexican territory. He also ad- ded, that this Autonomous Body insists on the topic, due existing the lack of interest by many so- cial sectors that don’t take into account and ignore the existence of one million 400 thousand per- sons that recognize themselves as afro descendants in our coun- try and whose rights are not res- pected. For this reason, the Executive Se- cretariat held a keynote speech gi- ven by Ms. Maria Elisa Velázquez Gutiérrez, Responsible for the National Program on Afro-des- cendants Research and Cultural Diversity of the National Institu- te of Anthropology and History (INAH). Ms. Velázquez indicated that the first issue in Mexico is focused against these commu- nities by not raising awareness upon them or taking them into account, violating their human rights. Hence the importance to set public policies and awareness campaigns, to address this topic as well as studies allowing cons- ciousness upon this issue. She stressed that the National Institute of Statistics and Geo- graphy (INEGI) has recorded afro-descendants settlements at: Mexico City, Coahuila, Duran- go, State of Mexico, Guanajuato, Oaxaca, Puebla, San Luis Potosí, Sinaloa, Tabasco, Veracruz and Yucatán. Lastly, she proposed to both the National Council for the Pre- vention of Discrimination (CO- NAPRED) and to CNDH the implementation of more activi- ties and strategies that englobes awareness campaigns addressed to public servants and society in general. Comunicados/2016/Com_2016_055.pdf 6 New Age, No. 277 Press Releases INDICE CNDH CALLED SOCIETY AND AUTHORITIES TO END DISCRIMINATION AND VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN, WHOM EQUAL OPORTUNITIES, MUST BE ENSURED CGCP/059/16 March 8th, 2016 The National Human Rights Commission (CNDH) called au- thorities, bodies for human rights protection and society in gene- ral to pursue the consolidation towards a democratic and inclu- sive society, to achieve gender equity and to end discrimination and violence against women, adolescents and girls, to whom equal opportunities and partici- pation must be ensured. This was emphasized by the Na- tional Ombudsman, Luis Raúl González Pérez, while leading the International Woman’s Day commemoration, an act in which he stressed that in this effort no- body must be left behind, mainly the most vulnerable people, wo- men and girls. He expressed that, as society, we must not allow that in our coun- try prevails social customs that relegate women to a subordina- te position as well as inequality, placing them in disadvantage compared to men. The eradication of violence against women and the full res- pect for their human rights are part of the global agenda and are a challenge for every country. Mexico and mainly the National Human Rights Commission are committed with this cause, so let us turn our country to an inclusi- ve society”. He concluded by recalling a quo- te by Rigoberta Menchú: “Peace is not only war absence; while there is poverty, racism, discri- mination and exclusion, we can hardly achieve a world of peace” municados/2016/Com_2016_059.pdf 7 New Age, No. 277 Press Releases MEXICAN OMBUDSMAN WARNS HIS COLLEAGUES OF 70 COUNTRIES ON THE VULNERABILITY OF THOSE FACING THE CONTEXT OF FORCED MIGRATION AND THAT CARRY THE FACE OF PAIN CGCP/078/16 Geneve, Switzerland, March 23th, 2016 The National Ombudsman, Luis Raúl González Pérez, caught the attention of more than 70 Natio- nal Human Rights Institutions (INDH) on the vulnerability that people face in the context of mi- gration at their transit through different national states. He em- phasized these are causes of for- ced mobility, discrimination, in- tolerance, speeches of hate, lack of options to reach decent living standards and natural disasters. By participating in the 29th Gene- ral Assembly of the UN Interna- tional Coordinating Committee of the National Institutions (ICC), held in Geneva, Switzerland, he highlighted that forced displace- ments constitute a human right violation and that one of the most vulnerable manifestations of the vulnerability of this group is the lack of access to justice in order to enforce their rights. Immigration policy, he pointed out, is not about proposing to build walls and fences, but to give a human face to its perfor- mance. He called on his counterparts to take into consideration that peo- ple in migratory context are cons- tant victims of violations to their fundamental rights, thus the INDICE NHRIs should have as center of their daily tasks the full compen- sation of the damage suffered by this group, which was made by the National States. Comunicados/2016/Com_2016_078.pdf 8 New Age, No. 277 Press Releases CNDH WARNS THAT THE LACK OF CONSTITUTIONAL RECOGNITION OF AFRO- DESCENDANTS´ HUMAN RIGHTS AND ITS INVISIBILITY, ARE ALSO DISCRIMINATION CGCP/081/16 March 25th, 2016 The National Human Rights Commission (CNDH) warns that the lack of constitutional recog- nition of afro-descendants rights in our country, demands urgent attention, since inclusion and in- visibility also are discrimination signs. The above was said at the IV Forum on Female Indigenous leaders, Afro-Mexicans and Mes- tizo from the South-Southeast re- gion of Mexico, held at Huatulco and Río Grande, Oaxaca, where CNDH actively participated on building bridges of communi- cation with these communities leaders located at the states of Campeche, Chiapas, Guerrero, Quintana Roo, Oaxaca, Tabasco, and Veracruz, tending to disse- minate human right among po- pulation as well as aimed its awa- reness and full enjoyment. On the other hand, in order to un- derstand about the situation that afro-descendants of Costa Chica, Oaxaca live and to identify as- pects in which CNDH may inter- fere, staff of this National Orga- nism visited communities from La Boquilla and la Tuza, at San José Río Verde, where they also started an awareness campaign among citizens and in which in- formation material was distri- buted. Also it was given written stories to children to make them aware of their human rights. municados/2016/Com_2016_081.pdf CNDH CONDEMS THE PERSISTENCE OF DIVERSE FORMS OF EXPLOTATION ON PERSONS IN OUR COUNTRY, WHICH ARE EQUIVALENT TO SLAVERY CGCP/082/16 March 25th, 2016 The National Human Rights Commission considers the com- memoration of the International Day of Remembrance of the vic- tims of slavery, should encourage authorities and society as a whole to be aware of , some practices of human beings ‘exploitation that still persists in our society, with serious consequences to human rights of a large number of peo- ple. Thus, CNDH warns about the importance of addressing phe- nomena such as human traffic- king, sexual exploitation, labor exploitation, forced begging, the involvement of children under age 18 on illegal activities, human trafficking of organs, tissues and cells, among others, which are ways in which individuals are be- ing used for purposes of exploita- tion. This National Commission un- derlines that human trafficking- considered modern slavery in XXI century- attempts against freedom and human beings dig- nity, it prevails within time and profits with wills and people’s lives, and by abuse degrades vic- tims’ human condition. Aiming to address this scourge, in 2012 was issued the General Law to Prevent, Sanction and to eradicate crimes on Human Tra- fficking and for the Protection and Assistance of Victims of the- se crimes, which in its article ten points out conducts and practices being considered forms in which individuals are used for purposes of exploitation. Slavery and the different ways in which human exploitation by other human beings is carry out must be abolished and eradica- ted, so that the aspiration of Kant that all of us may be treated as ends and never as means, beco- mes a reality. municados/2016/Com_2016_082.pdf INDICE 9 New Age, No. 277 Recommendations Responsible Authority ISSUE Recommendation National Institute of Social Security On the case of inappropriate me- dical care in detriment of V, at the ambulatory medical care unit no. 1, of the regional general hospital no. 36, of IMSS in Puebla, Puebla.

Berta Cáceres was a woman with special courage and principles. She headed a resistance against the development of the hydroelectric dam Agua Zarca at the Gualcarque River, allegedly being construc- ted without the consent of the affected indigenous communities and which threats with interrupting their way of life and access to water. The Inter-American Human Ri- ghts Commission had granted protection measures to Mrs. Cá- ceres, who used to work closely with the office of the High Commissioner. Honduras is supposedly the most dangerous coun- try for being an environmental activist. The gover- nment must do the impossible to break the vicious circle of violence and impunity, but international funder of development projects are also responsible of human rights issues. ciones- INDICE To Kill a Nightingale Harper Lee 2009 GENRE: CONTEMPORARY LITERATURE EDITORIAL: ZETA BOLSILLO LANGUAGE: SPANISH ISBN: 9788498722734 The 1961 Pulitzer Prize, Jean Louise Finch, evokes an era of his child- hood at Alabama (EEUU), when his father, Atticus, decided to defend in court a black man accused of raping a white woman. To kill a Nightingale is about a community controlled by racial pre- judices, mistrust of what is different, the rigidity of the family and neighborhood ties, as well as a judicial system with little guarantees for black population. A real classic of American literature of the XX century, which has cap- tivated millions of readers. In 1962, Robert Mulligan took it to the cinema. Now it is an Oscar-win- ner production with Horton Foote and Gregory Peck in the leading roles.
